Wonkette reports today that actor Paul Rudd was among the bystanders that rushed to take down a drunk redneck homophobe who had just assaulted a man after calling him a “faggot.” At this writing, it doesn’t appear that Rudd has confirmed the story, but after watching the clip again, it does look like him. The original video of the attack now has over 1.7 million views. Dallas police have not yet identified the assailant.

UPDATE: The tweet below is from the above-linked Wonkette blogger. Some Twitter users remain convinced that it was Rudd.
UPDATE II: The actual hero has identified himself as Dallas marketing guy Ben Kravit.
