Paul Rudd won’t get too jacked for Ant-Man role

Paul Rudd is a total stud (I’m a poet!) and doesn’t need to get shirtless and be all broody for women to like him. He’s funny! That’s where his sexiness comes from! That being said, don’t expect him to get “too jacked” for his role as Ant-Man in the upcoming film, because it won’t be happening.

From Flickering Myth:

Rudd recently appeared on The Colbert Report, where he discussed his training for the role. Apparently, he’s working on getting in shape but won’t be making a Chris Pratt-esque transformation, and humorously explained:

“I’ve had to kind of try and get in better shape. I don’t get too jacked. It doesn’t make sense for someone trying to be an ant.”

So, Rudd wont’ be sporting any Thor-sized biceps or doing any Oliver Queen salmon ladder routines; but he’s got a good point. Someone whose superhero schtick involves shrinking down to miniscule sizes doesn’t need gigantic triceps, and really it’s Rudd’s performance, not physique, that matters.

Here’s part of Paul’s interview, if you’re more of a listener than a reader:

What do you think? I mean of everything? Is making this movie even worthwhile? Is it going to be awful no matter what? Is Paul Rudd a poor casting choice? Should he get ripped? Why are we here?!

Would you have sex with Paul Rudd?

If you don’t have cable and/or don’t like funny things, you probably haven’t watched Billy on the Street. Billy Eichner is loud, obnoxious and extremely gay – three qualities some people seem to have a problem with, but not me! I love it. A lot of celebrities love it, as well, and they love appearing on his ambush-style show to have fun with unsuspecting New Yorkers.

Most recently, Paul Rudd the stud stopped by to ask city dwellers a very important question: Would you have sex with Paul Rudd?

Ha! It’s not every day that you’re stopped by Paul Rudd on the street and propositioned for sex, I suppose.

Paul Rudd To Play Lamest Super Hero Ever


Paul Rudd is going to be in a superhero movie. He’s going to be a superhero. But not at the Ben Affleck/Batman level. No, this is on a much smaller level, pun intended.

Variety reports that Paul Rudd is going to be Ant-Man.

What in the ever-loving f-ck is “Ant-Man”? Who the f-ck is going to see “Ant-Man”?

Here’s what Variety says about the character:

In the comics, the character’s alter-ego is Henry Pym, a brilliant scientist who invented a substance that allowed him to change his size and communicate with insects. One scenario that was rumored when Wright first came on is that he would focus on the later years of Ant-Man and add the character Scott Lang, a crook who steals Pym’s technology and becomes the new Ant-Man. This may hint at the idea that both Rudd and Gordon Levitt could potentially become involved in the film, although the idea seems unlikely.

I’m sorry, but this sounds like the lamest superhero of all time. OF ALL TIME. Tom Hanks, I know you want to be a villain in a superhero movie, but I’d stay away from this one.

Although WTF do I know? Marvel fans, can you educate me on Ant-Man and why this is interesting?
