A lot of people forget that Paul Rudd played a lot of “serious” roles before everyone saw Wet Hot American Summer and Anchorman and realized what a brilliant comedic actor he was. Someone on the web recently created this compilation (video after the jump) of one of his pre-comedy performances, in Gen Y Cops, the badly dubbed 2000 Hong Kong action sequel to Gen X Cops, in which Rudd sports a sweet Hans Grüber haircut and an attitude to match. I’ve always said, what Anchorman really needed was more underwater gun fights. My favorite line?
