Rust left Iowa in 2004 and moved to L.A. with a film degree and a couple of short films. He signed up for classes at UCB L.A. when it opened in late 2005 and started performing sketch comedy there. When FunnyorDie.com launched, Rust posted a video every two weeks. By 2008, he had landed a starring role in Twentieth 20th Century Foxs comedy " I Love You, Beth Cooper," and a small part in Quentin Tarantino's " Inglourious Basterds." Rust's now writing two features, one for Will Ferrell and Adam McKay and another (with Charlyne Yi) for Judd Apatow. See his blog at paulrust.com.
