Paul Rudd has proved that we can’t believe a damn word out of his mouth. While promoting Anchorman 2 earlier this week, Paul Rudd denied any knowledge of his being cast as Ant-Man. Now, lo and behold, comes news that Rudd has officially entered talks to star as the Marvel hero.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt was also up for the role of Hank Pym, the scientist who can shrink himself and talk to insects, but denied the rumors almost immediately. With the announcement that he was going to enter our dreams, it was a foregone conclusion that Rudd would take this part. Mostly because our only other short and sarcastic option would be Frankie Muniz. (Variety)
