Which Slender, Endearing Brunette Would You Rather Have As Ant-Man? Paul Rudd Or JGL?

By Joanna Robinson | Pajiba Love | October 15, 2013 | Comments ()


The internet lost its collective sh*t a few months ago when Simon Pegg teased that he might have a role in Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man movie. And then Simon said something along the lines of “don’t lose your blob, I’m not up for the part.” Seriously, internet, gather your blobs, because it looks like they’re going in a decidedly less ginger direction. JGL or Paul Rudd? That’s like saying do I want a delicious chocolate bar or do I want a delicious chocolate bar wearing a vest? (Underscoopfire)

Speaking of delicious chocolate things, Dustin took some time to bring you 20 fun and obscure facts you might not know about Scrubs. The delicious chocolate thing is Turk, ah, in case that wasn’t clear. (WG)

I’m fairly certain Olivia Wilde could fit at least three of you up the legs of these pants. And, if she charged admission, I’m equally certain she could make more money doing that than her last five movies combined. (GFY)

And while we’re on the subject of sassy pantsuits, I’m recapping The Good Wife for Vulture this year. Please do go read if you a) enjoy the show and b) STILL HARBOR HATE FOR MELISSA GEORGE FROM HER ALIAS DAYS. Ahem. (Vulture)

Natalie Portman claims that though she grew up in an environment of snobbery, she’s come to reject all those things. That, ah, that doesn’t jive at all with my perception of her…(Celebitchy)

…then again, what do I know.

Rand Paul’s anti-Muslim rant may be upsetting, but I’m still dying to know how he gets his hate-filled curls so irresistibly crunchy. (TDB)

My arch-nemisis, Bret Easton Ellis got quashed by none other than Norm Macdonald on Twitter. I don’t know which is weirder, Ellis deciding that the delightful Alice Munro is worth of attacking or the Twitternaisance Macdonald is enjoying. (Uproxx)

Some neighbors called the cops on these delightful people because their Halloween decorations were going to “upset the children.” I. Oh. People. Get a grip. (Gawker)

Speaking of the horror (the horror), there are currently five Wizard Of Oz TV shows in development. FIVE. I mean, the four shows Marvel has in development look tame by comparison. (The Playlist)

Speaking of Marvel, that sassy little kid who held his own against RDJ in Iron Man 3 is going to be the lead in the new (AND WHOLLY UNNECESSARY) Jurassic Park movie. Possibly more relevant to your interests? Jake Johnson is also in talks to star. Good luck out Charlie Day-ing Charlie Day in Pacific Rim, Jake. (Deadline)

And while we’re on the subject of It’s Always Sunny, please enjoy these adorable Japanese kindergartners performing a song from the show. Some young American is having fun with his “I’m going to go live abroad and teach English in Japan for a year” plan. (Videogum)

I loved the hell out of these high-concept portraits of classic comedians. Oh, Mel Brooks, you may get old but your Hitler jokes never will. (Flavorwire)


Finally, Tom Hiddleston did a little dance and, by the sound of it, the entire audience feverishly tore themselves to shreds.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

    Joanna, thanks for the Good Wife recap! I've been waiting for someone (that I really like) to recap it! Moving to Vulture.

    By the way, why isn't everybody watching The Good Wife? I mean, I think it's the best TV Show on air.

  • ZbornakSyndrome

    I'm disturbed at how many times I've watched this stupid dance. I need a hobby before Hiddlemania takes over.

  • So, still no Dazzler: The Movie? Because I used to think it was the perfect vehicle for Jessica Simpson, but now I just don't know.

  • melissa82

    And now I need to rewatch Scrubs. Haha, love how the characters Colonel Doctor, Doctor Beardface and Snoop Dog Intern/Resident/Attending got their names.

  • Sean

    JGL is a better actor. Rudd is funnier. So, pick 'em.

  • lowercase_see

    So when do we get a Hiddleston/Rockwell dance-off?

  • And, if we can get Hiddleston to do one of those lip sync-offs on Fallon, that'd be pretty sweet as well.

  • luthien26

    Make this happen, internet!

  • bastich

    Excuse me, but is this where I sign up for the get-fitted-up-the-leg-of-Olivia Wilde's-pants ride?

    (Also, will lunch be provided?)

  • Annapurna

    Dustin's article makes me miss Scrubs so much.

    And just when I thought I could not adore Hiddleston more...

    He also sang Man in the Mirror in the same press event! :)

  • denesteak


    And, omg, that dance was awesome!!!!

  • Jake Johnson will Jake Johnson the shit out of whatever role he's cast in. When you can Jake Johnson something you don't have to worry about Charlie Day-ing it.

  • luthien26


    Also, I kind of want to see Loki do that dance in the next "Thor" movie. For reasons.

  • chanohack

    God, gather your blob, please. (<-- New favorite phrase of all time which I must deploy at every opportunity even if I TOTALLY AGREE.)

  • Adam Borden

    Still no confirmation of whether Ant-Man focuses on Scott Lang or Hank Pym... Until then I can't really judge which Actor I would prefer, but I like both of those actors?

  • Batesian

    Clearly, the answer is to cast Rudd as Hank Pym and JGL as Scott Lang. Buddy picture!

  • MichaelAndTheArgonauts


  • BWeaves

    The Hiddlesdance is adorkable.

  • ZbornakSyndrome

    He commits to it so fully, it's awesome.

  • Blake

    RE: Ant Man: Simon Pegg, JGL, P.R.

    Or Robert Sheehan.

    I love the quote at the bottom of the link:

    The fact they they are looking hard at these two actors, even if they ultimately cast someone else, means we can expect more of a cerebral, quick witted Tony Stark-like Hank Pym as opposed to a beefed up stereotypical superhero.

    While JGL is pocket size, I'd post a shirtless pic as evidence to the contray but I'd rather not have that in works serach history...
