Paul Rudd Talks 'Ant-Man' for New 'THR' Cover Feature!

Paul Rudd lounges on the couch while posing for the cover of The Hollywood Reporter‘s latest issue.

Here is what the 46-year-old Ant-Man actor and Marvel president Kevin Feige had to share with the mag:

Paul on if he asked his reps to be in a Marvel movie: “No, but I rarely have those kind of discussions with my representatives about anything. I don’t have an agenda where I do a comedy and say, ‘I have to do a drama next,’ or ‘I am looking for an action movie now.’ The Marvel world wasn’t anything I thought about seriously because I guess I never imagined I’d get hired.”

Paul on re-writing the screenplay: “When we were talking about other directors, Adam came in. He’s a friend of mine. We talked about some things in that meeting, and then walked outside, and Adam and I spent 20 minutes or so in the parking lot talking about possibilities. It felt like we were building room additions on a house that Edgar and Joe had done.”

Kevin on hiring Paul: “We honed in on Paul relatively early. A very high bar has been set with Robert Downey in Iron Man. That idea was, find the best actor for the part, regardless of whether they’ve been in a movie like this before. Great actors, charismatic actors, who can connect to the audience on a deeply emotional and on an entertaining, charismatic level and also be able to pull off the action and look cool in a suit — the inherent likability you can’t train for, and Paul has that.”
