Over the years, you've seen Triumph the Insult Comic Dog on Conan O'Brien's shows but now the man behind Triumph, comedian Robert Smigel, has a supporting role in Judd Apatow's 'This is 40.' And, of course, Smigel brought Triumph along and had him talk to the cast of the film including Paul Rudd and Megan Fox. Hilarity ensues.
The transition from ‘The 40-Year-Old Virgin’ to ‘This is 40’ has been an interesting one for Judd Apatow. After doing some really personal work on television’s ‘Freaks and Geeks’ -- and getting almost immediately cancelled when no one watched it -- he became a major name in cinematic comedy with the big, broad ‘Virgin,’ a film about a man trying to end decades of sexual starvation. He followed that up with ‘Knocked Up,’ about a young stoner who learns the perils of impregnating Katherine Heigl -- whose sister was played by Leslie Mann, Apatow’s real-life wife, and whose nieces were played by Maude and Iris Apatow, Apatow and Mann’s real-life daughters. While most of the movie was about Seth Rogen and Heigl’s wacky babywaiting shenanigans, there was that small percentage of observational family life comedy with Mann, the junior Apatows, and Paul Rudd, ostensibly playing Judd. It was some of the best stuff in the film, and it pointed the way forward.
It's the rare couple that can get into specifics about how they would kill each other while talking about how much they love each other. But that's Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann in 'This is 40' and despite being madly in love, they still sort of hate each other sometimes. Sound familiar? Then you might like this movie.

In what may be the greatest news in the history of cinema, Will Ferrell broke on tonight's Conan O'Brien show that he will be reuniting with director Adam McKay, and co-stars Paul Rudd and Steve Carell for what could be the greatest sequel every filmed: 'Anchorman 2.' This has the possibility of making 'The Godfather Part II' look like 'The Godfather Part III.'
