Paul Rudd wakes up in the middle of the night to discover Paul Rudd has broken into his house in the official trailer for “Living With Yourself,” a dark comedy coming to Netflix in October.
The “Ant-Man” actor and past Stern Show guest stars as Miles Elliott, a malcontent who undergoes a bizarre and expensive spa treatment in the hopes of finding some happiness. Instead of becoming a better person, however, he literally gets replaced by a better version of himself.
“I woke up in a spa, went to work, and came home,” the new Miles says after confronting his old self (above).
“I woke up in a grave, and then I walked for six hours to find whatever the fuck you are,” the old Miles responds.
Told from multiple perspectives and intersecting storylines, the eight-episode series co-stars Irish actress-comedian Aisling Bea as Paul(s') love interest and was created by Timothy Greenberg, the Emmy and Peabody-winning executive producer of “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.”
When Rudd visited the Stern Show in 2015 shortly after the release of his original “Ant-Man” film, the actor didn’t have anything to say about running into his own doppelgänger. He did, however, speak to Howard about a memorable run-in he had with the now-deceased Marvel legend Stan Lee. “He’s amazing. Like, sharp as a tack. Really funny,” Paul recalled for Howard.
Listen to a clip from their conversation (below).
“Living With Yourself” debuts Oct. 18 on Netflix.
