Rudd, the former "Friends" star, is a huge Royals fan who lives in New York. So while he's rooting for Kansas City to win the World Series, Rudd said he'd be "OK" if the Mets won. "I've always liked the Mets," the "This Is 40" and "Ant-Man" star said on the field at Kauffman Stadium before Game 2 on Wednesday night. "It isn't just sucking up. If the Royals were to lose to the Mets in this series, that's OK. That being said, I'm pulling for the Royals all the way. But Mets fans and Royals fans, they have had a shared kind of frustration over the years." Rudd played lawyer turned piano man Mike Hannigan on "Friends." His character married Lisa Kudrow's Phoebe Buffay in the final season.
