What’s better than an entire TV show about Paul Rudd? A TV show about Paul Rudd starring TWO Paul Rudds.
Yesterday, Netflix dropped the trailer for Living With Yourself, a new TV series about a man (played by Paul Rudd) who undergoes an experimental treatment to improve his life, only to be replaced by a new and improved version of himself (also played by Paul Rudd).
Paul’s character must fight for his wife, his career, and his very identity, and judging by the jam-packed trailer, things get pretty dark.
While it might be confronting to see optimist Rudd face off against grumpy Rudd, the creepy clones means two Paul Rudds for the price of one, which is never a bad thing.
There are countless reasons why double the Rudd is a dream come true. Firstly, the guy isn’t afraid to break out in dance at the drop of a hat – and believe me when I say, his moves are really something. Just watch his passionate Lip Sync Battle on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
Secondly, Rudd DOES NOT AGE. It’s pretty hard to believe the actor is 50 years old when he he doesn’t look a day over his youthful 26-year-old self in Clueless.
The third reason why it’s impossible not to love Rudd is he loves a good old fashioned stitch up. Every time he appears on Conan O’Brien’s talk shows he goes to show a snippet of his upcoming movie or TV show, but for over 15 years has consistently pranked him by playing the same clip from the 1998 film Mac and Me.
It’s evil, it’s genius, and it’s just another reason why Paul Rudd is the Internet’s boyfriend. Oh, there’s also that time he attempted to learn Cantonese.
Living With Yourself drops on Netflix on October 18th and I cannot wait.
