Happy 51st Birthday Paul Rudd! My favorite Ant-Man scenes in the MCU

Apparently today’s Paul Rudd‘s birthday! Can you believe it this guy is 51 years old!! He doesn’t look a day over 30. Like Keanu Reeves, there must be a secret fountain of youth these guys ought to tell us!

I was reading a bit about Paul Rudd, as I don’t really know much about him. Here are a few interesting facts about the New Jersey-born actor.

  • His parents were born in the United Kingdom, his father from Edgware and his mother from Surbiton, both in London.
  • When he was ten, Rudd’s family moved to Lenexa, Kansas. His family also spent three years living in Anaheim, California, because of his father’s occupation as a historical tour guide.
  • Rudd spent three months studying Jacobean drama at the British American Drama Academy based in Oxford, U.K.
  • He made his acting debut in 1992 with NBC’s drama series Sisters – (first time I saw Rudd was in Clueless)
  • In 2003, Rudd married Julie Yaeger and the couple has two children: a son, Jack Sullivan, and a daughter, Darby.
  • Rudd reveals fans still ask him about his Clueless days more than any other role.

Rudd’s definitely one of my favorite actors in the MCU. He’s just so perfect and fun to watch as Ant-Man. I enjoyed both films, though my favorite scenes of Ant-Man is actually in Captain America: Civil War

… especially this one when he first meeting–and geeking out over–Steve Rogers 😀 I literally always rewind THAT scene more than anything else in that movie!

I know you know lots of super people… so thinks for thanking of me…

… and that epic and hilarious airport battle scene w/ giant Ant-Man!!

“O..kay tiny dude is big now, he’s big now”

What’s YOUR favorite Paul Rudd role(s)?

  1. My favorite role of his is in Wet Hot American Summer as the guy who think he’s cool and above everyone else but is such a douche bag as it is the film that really sets a template of what he can do in comedy. I love him as Ant-Man as he’s such a joy to watch as I’m eager for what will happen in the third film as rumor has it that the film might be a set-up for a spin-off relating to the Young Avengers that Scott Lang’s daughter Cassie is a part of with Scarlet Witch/Vision’s twin children, and other young heroes. Plus, I hope the film also has more Luis as I just love the chemistry between Rudd and Michael Pena.

  2. Geez, can’t believe that he’s over 50, he’s one of those actors that’s been around for so long and you don’t really think he’ll ever go away. Ha ha! Wow, I totally forgot about that show SISTERS, I actually watched it back in the days and I think that’s the first time I saw Rudd on screen.

    He’s definitely great as Ant-Man. But I thought his role in Duncan Jones’ MUTE was quite underrated, you should check it out if you haven’t seen it. The movie is on Netflix, it’s a futuristic noir thriller. The movie was trashed but critics but I thought it was great. I also like him in those silly comedies like Anchorman, Knocked Up, This Is 40 and The 40-Year-Old-Virgin.

    Also, if you want to see a funny interview, watch him eat hot wings while being interview: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gWVHses2GCY. This is a show on YouTube where the host interview celebrities while eating hot wings. It’s pretty hilarious.
