Paul Rudd is a funny guy, and if you've seen Role Models, The 40-Year-Old Virgin or Wet Hot American Summer, you know he's extremely capable of making fun of himself for laughs; whether it's by playing a total a-hole, a loser-in-love or by donning hideous cutoffs and a mustache. His other comedic forte is his deadpan mockery of the constant dumbasses his characters come across — including SmartTech manager in Virgin and whack-job community service manager in Role Models both played by the hilarious Jane Lynch.

Tonight's episode employs a device that has worked well in the past and gives all the cast members a chance to shine.
