One Direction fever? The boys reject an eager Paul Rudd from the band

Paul Rudd’s boyband dreams have come to an end as One Direction have rejected the Anchorman star as a band-mate.

But Rudd could still invite the five boys to Hollywood to pursue acting careers as they had their deadpan faces down to a tee.

The hit boyband filmed a series of promos with funnyman Rudd ahead of tonight’s NBC Saturday Night Live.

Rudd is set to host the show as One D boys Harry, Niall, Zayn, Liam and Louis take to the stage.

Rudd stood in the middle of the boys and announces he was once part of the group.

“A band I used to be in but was unceremoniously asked to leave,” he said sullenly.

“Sorry Paul, no hard feelings,” the boys replied with straight faces.

Rudd added: “Well yeah there's hard feelings, there's hard feelings.”

It’s not long before Rudd catches One D fever either as the boys have to catch him as he faints in front of them.

It will be the boys' second time on the late-night show as they first appeared on SNL in April of 2012.
