After taking on the mighty Thanos with the Avengers, you would think Paul Rudd would be tired with battles. Next month in Living With Yourself, Ant-Man himself will find himself at war again…with himself!
In his first leading role(s) in a television series, Paul Rudd plays Miles, a man who is struggling in life. When he undergoes a novel spa treatment that promises to make him a better person, he finds he’s been replaced by a new and improved version of himself.
Can this truly stretch over eight episodes? Personally this may have been better off as a film. Life can be repetitive and we should always challenge ourselves to be better. If you enjoy Rudd’s humour I’m sure you won’t mind having two Paul Rudd’s on the screen…
