How could anyone say no to Paul Rudd? Apparently, Barbara Walters had no trouble on “Good Morning America” today.

In a continuing trend of spot-on marketing for “Anchorman 2,” Rudd made the trek to “GMA” headquarters to kibbitz with Walters about… well, it doesn’t really much matter, because he ended up putting the moves on her and getting completely rebuffed.

We’re shocked! We’re horrified! Such a nice Jewish boy! What a shidduch gone wrong! And we’re definitely going to see the “Anchorman” sequel, which is absolutely the point. Hats off to the marketing gurus behind this latest stunt.

J-Connection: Both Paul Rudd and Barbara Walters are Jewish.
