Our Idiot Interviews: Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Banks

by at .

A pair of THG favorites are about to hit the big screen together, as Paul Rudd and Elizabeth Banks anchor the cast of Our Idiot Brother, which comes out on Friday.

The title pretty much makes it clear, but the film centers around Rudd's Ned, the runt of a beautiful litter that includes sisters played by Banks, Emily Mortimer and Zooey Deschanel. The former told Movie Fanatic that she can relate to the concept:

"I am the oldest, bossiest daughter of a family of four... I have a 26-year-old brother who sells pizza and maybe something else while delivering those pizzas."

Rudd, meanwhile, said he could relate to one aspect of the film in particular: playing charades.

"Despite all of the battling and fighting, we come together," the actor said. "It was such an emotionally charged moment and scene. It was kind of heartbreaking, because at different points we all sometimes - as hard as you can be - you just want to play charades with your family, but you’re unable to."
