Happy Friday! How you would like to watch 43 uninterrupted minutes of two of the nicest guys in Hollywood? You can, because Chris Evans and Paul Rudd, a.k.a. Captain America and Ant-Man, recently chatted with each other for Variety’s at home Actors on Actors series. Please note that they’re both rocking some great quarantine beards in this informal talk.
Evans and Rudd recently met “virtually” from their respective homes and discussed a little bit of the everything. They of course chatted about their experiences with the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Additionally they delved into Paul Rudd’s performance on Friends, embarrassing dance videos of Rudd that Evans has stored on his phone, and their new projects. That includes Defending Jacob on Apple TV+ and Living With Yourself on Netflix.
After some playful banter resulting in Rudd bringing out Thanos’s gauntlet, they got down to it. They asked each other thoughtful questions resulting in both actors reminiscing about past projects. They also spent quite a bit of time talking about what it was like working in the MCU. Evans played Steve Rogers from 2011-2019 and Rudd played Scott Lang from 2015-2019. So, they both have a bit of history of working within the franchise.
Both Evans and Rudd are very polite to each other during the video. Neither one seemed to want to talk about himself for too long, so they kept the interview to a quick back and forth style. The interview ends with both actors saying how awful these types of interviews usually are, but doing it together made it less so. All in all, it’s a delightful interview to take you into the weekend.
And if you need a little extra oomph, you may as well watch Sir Patrick Stewart and Henry Cavill‘s installment of the Actors on Actors series.
It is equally charming.
