What is better than one Paul Rudd? Two Paul Rudds. At least for me and the many fans out there. The Ant-Man actor is all set to star in Netflix's upcoming comedy series, Living With Yourself. It was only till a while ago that the news was confirmed and the first look of the same is here now.
Paul plays Miles, a struggling man who starts an innovative spa treatment to become a better person and finds he's been replaced by an improved version of himself. The eight-episode comedy, which premieres Oct. 18, will follow Miles' fight for his identity, career, and wife (Aisling Bea). The first-look photos (see below) show two oppositely dressed Rudds going through the character's day-to-day-life.
Living With Yourself has an interesting backstory. The comedy was picked up as a pilot at IFC in February 2017, without Rudd attached, but was released back to its creatives over budget issues with the niche cable network. Producers shopped the series and scored the Netflix pickup.
Although this will be his first starring project on the small screen, Rudd previously was part of the star-studded ensemble cast of Netflix's Wet Hot American Summer and had recurring roles on NBC's Friends and Parks and Recreation. He will also be the lead of Jason Reitman's upcoming Ghostbusters, the third film in the franchise.
