First Look at Paul Rudd in ‘Ant-Man’

Paul Rudd Shirtless...Just Because

The latest film in the Marvel Studio empire, Ant-Man, is two days into filming, and we’re finally getting a glimpse of Paul Rudd playing the lead character of Ant-Man or Scott Lang.  (See the brooding funny guy here).  The film, which will be released next summer, is filming in San Francisco and Atlanta, and will also star Michael Douglas playing Dr. Hank Pym the creator of the Ant-Man suit.

Rudd spoke with EW about the role:

Rudd’s character, Scott Lang, isn’t the usual do-gooder. He’s a thief, a guy with a past, someone with a code, but those morals can be shrunk down to size without the need of a special suit. So what makes him a hero? “It’s a great question. One that’s been hotly debated for a while.  There are levels. There are some pretty bad thieves and there’s some really good thieves, let’s be honest. There’s people who do it for the right reasons.”

Marvel’s Ant-Man first appeared in 1962 and was a superhero persona based on the scientist Henry Pym, who created a substance that would allow him to change his size from microscopic to gigantic.  He later retired and was replaced by Scott Lang and Eric O’Grady.  The film will also star Corey Stoll, Evangeline Lilly, Judy Greer, T.I., Bobby Cannavale, and John Slattery. 

I’ll tell you what.  My son recently discovered super heroes – so we just read Ant-Man’s origin story…  I don’t get it.  What’s so cool about ants? I hate ants.  I do love me some Paul Rudd though.  Iron Man will always be my favorite though.

Paul Rudd Shirtless…Just Because

Paul Rudd Shirtless...Just Because

Paul Rudd in a suit is gorgeous, but Paul Rudd half naked is that much better. While we don’t have access to this particular photo of Paul’s hotness, that doesn’t mean that we don’t love our readers enough to point you in the right direction of this goodness.

Paul Rudd has been cast as an Avenger. SAY WHAT!?

Jennifer Aniston and Paul Rudd Wrap Up Shooting In NYC

According to TheWrap, Paul Rudd has been cast to play Ant-Man in Marvel’s “Ant-Man.” Are you as shocked as I am??

Back in October, Paul and Joseph Gordon-Levitt were at the top of the list for the role. Apparently the 44-year-old actor beat out his younger competition! (It didn’t help that Joseph signed on to play “Sandman” in a new Warner Bros. film.)

So far his reps haven’t confirmed the news, but according to multiple sources – it’s happening.

Apparently ‘Ant-Man’ is due in theaters on July 31, 2015, so all we’re waiting for is that big ol’ confirmation from Paul!

I think Paul Rudd could be good as an action hero, like Robert Downey Jr. was for ‘Iron Man.’ I thought they were crazy when they first cast RDJ as ‘Iron Man’ but he ended up being the perfect choice!

Megan Fox, Melissa McCarthy, Jerry Seinfeld, Paul Rudd & more cover Vanity Fair’s “Comedy Issue”

We’re getting our first look January’s ‘Comedy Issue’ of Vanity Fair. The three covers showcase the hottest comedians right now (Megan Fox!?). The issue was guest-edited by Judd Apatow, writer/director of the huge hits ’40 Year Old Virgin’, ‘Knocked Up’, and the upcoming ‘This is 40’.

Some of the comedians featured on the covers include Paul Rudd, Leslie Mann, Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Ben Stiller, Chris Rock and Jerry Seinfeld. I just love all three! Here’s more from VF:

In Vanity Fair’s first-ever comedy issue, writer, director, and producer Judd Apatow convened his most talented friends and idols to contribute, write, and pose for a 19-page Mark Seliger portfolio—as well as act incredibly dignified and businesslike in costume for three different covers. Included are the stars of Apatow’s This Is 40, dressed as famous figures of 60s- and 70s-era variety shows like Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In, with Leslie Mann in a bikini and body paint à la Goldie Hawn and Melissa McCarthy dressed as Lily Tomlin’s Edith Ann; Paul Rudd plays your oily show host, and Megan Fox is an alluring bellhop.

A second cover features Jim Carrey dressed up as Evel Knievel, Maya Rudolph doing an ancient Egyptian like Steve Martin in his King Tut days, Will Ferrell as a corny cowboy, and Amy Poehler as a 60s go-go girl. Finally, Kristen Wiig plays Cher to Ben Stiller’s Sonny on a final cover alongside Chris Rock, doing a Nipsey Russell thing, and Jerry Seinfeld, decked out in a Nehru jacket.

Apatow is only the third guest editor—after Bono, who guest-edited the Africa issue in July 2007, and Tom Ford, who guest-edited the Hollywood Portfolio in March 2006—since Graydon Carter became editor of the magazine 20 years ago. Says Carter in his editor’s letter this month, “It can reasonably be said that the comedy industry is booming these days, in movies, on television, and onstage. And who better to oversee an entire issue on the subject than one of the great impresarios of the business? . . . Judd was a terrific collaborator, brimming with suggestionsand infectious energy—precisely the sort of high-wattage, Hollywood-style enthusiasm that can alternately excite you and drive you a bit crazy.”

Conan O’Brien, Lena Dunham, Zach Galifianakis, Steve Martin, Mel Brooks, and Carl Reiner are just some of the legends past, present, and future that Apatow corralled for the Comedy Portfolio. Louis C.K. answers the Proust Questionnaire, and Jimmy Fallon stars in our Out to Lunch column.

I cannot WAIT to get my hands on this issue! Looooove it!
