A video surfaced on Saturday that showed an angry, violent man slinging hateful, homophobic slurs at a random stranger at the Dallas-Fort Worth airport. (Caution: NSFW language.)
The man, who appears to be possibly impaired by drugs and/or alcohol, then starts getting in other passengers faces, screaming obscenities and hurling threats, all while airport security stroll on by like carefree children on their way to recess.
Then, after a minute, the man punches a guy he calls a "queer." Little did the man know that he was about to get tackled to the ground by a crowd of people that included a mustache-free Brian Fantana. Or not.
As it turns out, it wasn't Rudd. It wasn't ever going to be Rudd. Life is occasionally giving, but it's never going to be "Paul-Rudd-saves-the-day-by tackling-violent-lunatic" giving. No matter how much it looks like him.
Guess there are some people in this world who, when seen on a shaky, low-res YouTube video, happen to kind of resemble our favorite I Love You Man star. This random doppelganger happens to be one.
Also, the star's rep flat-out denied that it was the beloved actor. Who wouldn't take credit for being a hero?
