Watch: Mark Everett Of Eels Plays Paul Rudd A Song In Deleted Scene From 'This Is 40'

Even though the theatrical cut runs well over two hours, it seems that, as usual, a lot of material has been left on the cutting room floor from Judd Apatow's "This Is 40." And with the story (partially) centering on the floundering business of Paul Rudd's character's record label, it would appear that at one time there was a lot more focus on the artists he was representing or looking to sign.

This Is 40 Paul Rudd

Even though the theatrical cut runs well over two hours, it seems that, as usual, a lot of material has been left on the cutting room floor from Judd Apatow's "This Is 40." And with the story (partially) centering on the floundering business of Paul Rudd's character's record label, it would appear that at one time there was a lot more focus on the artists he was representing or looking to sign.

In case you're playing catch up, "This Is 40" takes Pete and Debbie from "Knocked Up" and spins them off into their own film that follows their trials and tribulations as they approach the big four-oh. Among them, Pete heads into financial ruin as he tries to relaunch '70s rocker Graham Parker. In a previous deleted scene, we saw Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day pitch a side project, and now we get to see Mark Everett of Eels play a tune for Pete. Besides being a lengthy segment from a subplot that was excised, we can only imagine that zeroing in on a guy/band whose fame peaked in the '90s probably wasn't the best narrative direction to take.

But for those of you who still follow the band, this is probably worth a spin, so check it out below. "This Is 40" is now in theaters, and we're taking wagers now on how long the inevitable Unrated & Uncut version of "This Is 40" will run when it hits home video.
