Paul Rudd To Star Alongside Paul Rudd In What Could Be The Best TV Show Ever

Two Paul Rudds for the price of one.

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.

Love you Paul. Credit: Giphy

Living With Yourself drops on Netflix on October 18th and I cannot wait.

Sorry To Break It To You But A 'Friends' Reboot Is Never Going To Happen

You know what they say: leave the party when you're still having fun.

Since Friends came to an end in 2004, fans of the show have stopped at nothing to try and bring the show back.

Despite all the campaigning, it looks like the dream of a Friends reboot is dead in the water.

Speaking at the Friends’ 25th anniversary panel at the Tribeca TV Festival last week, the show’s creators Marta Kauffman and David Crane said they’ll never do a reunion show or a reboot, no matter how much money is on the table.

“We will not be doing a reunion show, we will not be doing a reboot,” Kauffman said. “There are two reasons for that. One of them is, the reason we won’t be doing a reunion is this is a show about that time of your life when your friends are your family, and once you start having family, that changes.”

“It wouldn’t be at what’s at the heart of the show. The other reason is, it’s not going to be what we did.”

Crane added, “we did the show we wanted to do. We got it right and out the bow on it that we wanted to put.”

“As Marta says, if you visited those characters now, it would just have a different DNA and it would just not be the same show. Chances are it wouldn’t be as good of a show. This feels like this is the show, so why go back to the well?”

Kauffman and Crane have a point. There’s a long list of TV reboots that have crashed and burned in spectacular fashion over the past few years, including 2011’s Charlie’s Angels, 2009’s Melrose Place and 2018’s Charmed. 

The ill fate of TV reboots hasn’t stopped Friends fans from pushing for a comeback. In 2018, Matthew Perry AKA Chandler Bing told Variety “when I’m asleep, I have this nightmare that we do Friends again, and nobody cares.”

“We do a whole series, we come back, and nobody cares about it. So if anybody asks me, I’m gonna say no. The thing is, we ended on such a high. We can’t beat it. Why would we go and do it again?” he said.

Perry has a point. Perhaps it’s time we all accept that sadly, Friends is never coming back. You know what they say: always leave the party when you’re still having fun.

“A story that spans the 1960s to the ‘80s, through the breakdown of a marriage that Oprah deemed one of ‘America’s messiest divorces’ even before it ended in double homicide.” You know when our Queen Oprah says something, it’s a story that needs your attention.

College sweethearts Betty and Daniel Broderick married in 1969 and ended up becoming parents to five children. Over the course of their two-decade marriage, Dan was the Broderick’s breadwinner. While the family was financially stable, Betty became a full-time housewife and their relationship began to breakdown. When they finally divorced and Dan married his second wife, all hell broke loose.

The first season of Dirty John, based on the podcast of the same name, followed the true story of wealthy interior designer Debra Newell who fell in love with John Meehan, a con man posing as an anaesthesiologist with a history of deceiving women who ultimately ruins her life. 

John Meehan was played by Eric Bana and Debra Newell was played by Connie Britton in the television series, which went on to earn Golden Globe and Critics’ Choice award nominations. 

If the Dirty John season 2 is anything like the first, we are in for a wild roller coaster of emotions. Dirty John: The Betty Broderick Story is currently in production, and is set to premiere next year.
