Paul Rudd Does a Historic Dab While Eating Spicy Wings | Hot OnesFeb 27, 2020
it's like advice it's a weather map I've got storms coming in category seven hey what's going on y'all? First, we have a feast. I'm Sean Evans and you're looking at the hot
ones. joins Paul Rudd, an actor, writer and producer, he's been in some of the most beloved movies and TV shows in the last 25 years, from Judd Apatow comedies to the Marvel Universe, and you can see him in the new Netflix comedy living with yourself which will be released on October 18th Paul Rudd welcome to the show thank you so much Sean i'm excited to be here how do you feel coming into this? you're a
spicyfood guy i like
spicyfood you know you know you don't Don't scare me.
I'm not that crazy about plutonium and I know that's where some of this is heading so I guess we'll see cauliflower yelling at vegetables to be efficient here as we mentioned in its intro you have this netflix comedy living with yourself q Before of playing two versions of the same character, what were the challenges and filming scenes with yourself? Did you feel any sympathy for the co-stars you've had over the years? The challenges of playing two roles the way we did if there's a lot of different ways to do it, I'd record the lines for both characters and then I'd have something in my ear and act like one character and then the response was a guy on the side, ya you know, pressing a button for him to respond and then he would turn and remember where he was standing where he was looking and then he would just act opposite to the sound I read a quote from you recently that I thought was really interesting where you said that a lot of the movies that you find the most funny
onesare classified as dramas and then some of the most dramatic things happen in comedies mm-hmm I mean I think it's a pretty broad spectrum but really I mean some of my favorite movies one of the funniest movies for me of all times. it's this movie e with nail in a british and 80s movie, which is essentially a very sad movie, but any time I see someone who is experiencing something heartbreaking or it's some kind of struggle or something emotional, and the way that they face it is through humor.
There are so many levels where I fight and then I find that really funny but I also find it relatable and I think that's when something can be funny but then incredibly moving and heartbreaking at the same time Alan Partridge or the office I thought you knew that kind of comedy o it's funny but it's actually kind of sad too i can ask you a few questions whatever you want because i think you're the most fascinating character within this setup how many of these have you done? I think you're number 166, okay? That's really impressive, thank you, do you feel any different now than when you started?
Does it affect you physically? Yeah you know I think what happens when I started was kind of an adjustment to get this right and then I think I had a good couple of seasons there where I was just cruising I was just on cruise control Lately now I'm turning up the hill one more time like dips challenge me one more time you know i think maybe the wheels are coming off the wagon or something you're an athlete you're a professional athlete that's true hey this is a short window right? I'm impressed with your attachment to activity I put a lot of miles from the city you know I don't want to see what's going on under that skin so Chris Schoenberger who you met when you came here has a relationship with the British that reflects yours almost exactly so when he was a kid his family in london has it he would get copies of his cousins beano he would raid candy shops and try to get his hands on crispy bars yes he even spent a three month stint in oxford right in wow that it's crazy growing up on tea and scones and sunday roast and yorkshire pudding and all of that is all my favorite things and it's all so comforting to me because i've always grown up with it and i and i knew like my next door neighbors they weren't
eatingyorkshire pudding i knew i was like that this is weird me i didn't know it was different i guess a lot of people in kansas city aren't making this happen.
I'm going to hit you with five cookies, please. Oh hockey with five british biscuits, rank them from best to worst. cream mm-hmm McVitie's digestive chocolate jammie Dodgers Cadbury fingers and jaffa cakes oh man one of those my favorite would be McVitie's the child I just did and it's probably a mix between that in Cadbury fingers as a kid Cadbury fingers are perfect right they are great bourbon creams which was the first i used to consecrate yeah those are great too i really like those many people who have jack jaffa cakes i dont so much i dont want fruit on my cookie ok , that's in the physical jelly yes yes the is because the one not the other that was he we have the jammie dodgers jammie dodgers I never did jammie dodgers I am not even that sure I know what jammie dodgers are and there are probably people who they're british saying ok you just lost your passport pineapple heartbeat don't feel the pressure to eat them all and i'm worried that way i was ready to go with him i know we're going to make the
wingsim going to scare eaten because you wouldn't be
eatingall of this you wouldn't be full of bill burr so when will ferrell was on the bill simmons podcast he said the original script for the host was actually a survival story where a plane full of journalists cut another plane that is full of monkeys and Chinese Throwing Stars and then basically you guys had to survive on this mountain yeah well the orangutans took you out one by one that's right newsmen vs apes.
I was going to ask, do you know anything about that? right yo hea As for that, it was already banned before I got the green light in the studio because I think somewhere very early on they realized that's impossible. I think the idea was that all these journalists were flying to some news convention or something and they were all smoking e-cigarettes that the whole cabin went up in smoke and the plane crashed now of course the plane was also carrying Chinese throwing stars and many martial arts weapons and crashed on an island inhabited by apes and then became a subservient tell the reporters versus the apes i want to see that when he was sick what could have been yes its true that when they were filming what hot american summer you guys stayed in camp and slept on the bunks yeah we went was this camp was called Towanda and it was Dale Pennsylvania.
It was a working camp. In fact, we had to shut down production for a week, almost a week because in the middle of that, a kid would come to celebrate his ba. r mitzvah at camp so you're on the clock yeah that's how high our output was. We had to stop in the middle to let the campground take a beating like this kid rented it out for his Bar Mitzvah what do you do? do ant man kill Thanos by climbing up his butt meme I consider it a missed opportunity you're from Chicago originally true it reboots here thanks honey sorry you're a sports fan I like bears I love bears I'm a white sports fan Sox I like the Bulls yeah I mean I grew up in the northern suburbs but for some reason I became a Sox fan mm-hmm but that's a lovely transition I love when that happens because I want to use a wig to talk about the big fancy weekend an annual event she co-founded to help raise money for the Cancer Center at Children's Mercy yes in the ten years they've been doing the celebrity softball game what do they think it is his greatest athletic achievement there is once a couple years ago where i think i scored all three outs in the inning wow everything else outside of that is just a shambles.
I don't think that record will be broken. for the Royals until I said, do you want to see what it's like to be in the box with a major league pitcher? I said yes and he had pitched last night but he was still throwing around 8590 mph and there's no way he could be. so strong and that's just a straight fastball if he starts mixing things up yeah that was just i knew he was coming and he's imparting a bullet wow! beautiful piece of cauliflower. I was going to say it looked like a baseball. that I hardly harden the sauce or all of this really is a tipping point and then that looks like a dinosaur egg that was like yeah you're not supposed to do that of yours you didn't rip it to pieces there's no wrong way Paul you are doing very well, I'm pretty. sure there's a wrong way and i think it was probably every korean segment on our show called to explain graham we do a deep dive and i guess instagram which is impossible for you because you don't have social media to talk about we have a how workaround, we're going to take some photos of you with famous musicians, so I'll show you the picture and then tell me the backstory,
doesthat sound good? a chance to chat during the game yeah he was super nice very cool by the way howard stern sitting right next to 50 cent yeah yeah he was cool he took a picture with my son he was just sitting next to me side. he was very nice and actually months later I was on a flight and he was on the flight and then we said “hi how are you doing how are you” and then he gave me a pair of headphones. you have a favorite behind-the-scenes memory of this music video sketch alongside Beyonce and Justin Timberlake.
I remember one of them when we recorded it or did it and Timberlake kept walking and how crazy everyone got and I and I had those moments I've had these throughout my career where sometimes I just take, I remind myself to go out of that and look at what is happening here. I'm doing this with Beyonce and Justin Timberlake and the other two guys I knew, so it was me and a huge fan, but it was like I never did it. I met these two well you know what they say we have to do this with Paul Rudd no that's what nobody says so whenever I get asked questions about the interesting ones I always find myself delivering these parables over and over another time I find when I do. maybe some of the nuances got lost and you're someone who's been doing TV and film press for 25 years.
Have you ever thought about how much your narrative is shaped by the need to pack the details of your life into these instantly accessible anecdotes? great question oh r Really yes, after a
whileyou get used to answering the same questions so you think differently to say the same answer and at a certain point I don't know if it happened like that or not if that's actually true. Or is it that I've answered that question so many times that it's now the truth or how I feel about it. A lot of people have asked me how to get started, what it was and I loved those Steve Martin comedy records when I was a kid and nothing like maybe I want to do this for a living because that was the first time I ever said it so many times in interviews which i think is true it may not be true but i its such a limited window you have a few minutes to talk about and then it becomes the default answer and then late at night it's its own beast because then there is this implied expectation to perform, yes, you are someone with stage experience, are you more comfortable in an environment like that? to say like a movie trip isn't all those things that are always stressful and i think i learned at a young age that everything is contrived you know as a kid i would watch letterman and i was like my god it was amazing i mean it was amazing and he's awesome and me but i think he's so cool as friends coming over and sitting on the couch.
Later I realized that they are promoting something like they are selling. that commercialism was when I started doing that and knowing that part of the job has become selling things and there are some things that are really fun to do like I was so excited to do this and excited to have you and thank you and me and there are programs that I like them and I also have one thing where I just can't answer anything serious which is perfect in this setting yes absolutely and then on the subject of Dave I know you joined the fan clubs in your life on Scottish musical duo The Proclaimers and David Letterman Do you remember how you became one of Dave's disciples and what do you think is his strongest quality as an entertainer?
I think David Letterman is responsible for this country's sensibility and sense of humor in a way that he
doesn't. even getting the credit, he gets credit and respect and everything, but I think he's a very important figure, especially at first honest and alasa, but this says that he didn't really want to be there. Yes, I always think about that. a moment where I think he was competing with Leno and then like there was a moment or maybe he let me take his foot off the gas but to me it was more fun than yeah and what he has that I find really attractive is that he has an intellect so huge that his disdain for all of show business and all the bullshit that comes with it is so in the right place that I just don't think there's anyone better this is a great this is a great great you and me both right here are like a good lord our canoes Pro the bravadoSpice Company, we're just a land on the Scoville meterabout 100k on this one okay it tastes that way yeah make sure when Larry King asked Judd Apatow to talk about something about Paul Rudd that no one else knows he says you do this. when you take photos of celebrities you do this with your hand where you make it look like there is a butt on them, yeah how do you do it?
If I gave you my phone, can you show me how you do it? the camera yeah so if i do this and i grab you and put my hand here to make it look like you're studying behind a guy or a girl who is totally naked there are things you can do where did you learn this skill? no no but I'm glad I did now yeah okay that's definitely a guy you got a bull sack yeah after a
whileyou can start yeah great expand expand grow I learned uh my little finger at the right angle this makes a great scrotum wait a minute you got more oh do i have them working?
This is when you'll probably be able to appear on the show we'll try you know what you can we'll always check with Randy yeah you can always open this image when you're on the subway that's a bit a little blurry, but you know you can, you're going to be out of place. you think they're tingling now this is the bomb and i gotta tell you it's from kansas city not sure if that's necessarily a point of pride mm-hmm i'll let you be the judge of kansas city huh mm-hmm Holman make the bomb make dabomb dabomb it's the one i don't touch this button i noticed yeah yell kansas city yell kansas city wow yeah we got patrick mahomes too don't judge us justin so i'm the theme of kansas city i know you a kansas city boy bbq lover what makes joe's kc z-man sandwich the best sandwich in the world oh my gosh it's just there's something there's something about it that's just perfect it's a perfect sandwich just the right levels of meat in I'm not actually a vegetarian, but I'm trying to be better. because there's meat in this sandwich but it's their own it's the right ratio of brisket they put provolone cheese on it it's good cheese with onion rings and joe's original sauce it's amazing and just the combination that with the seasoned fries maybe a tank seven in the side and you got yourself, oh that's a perfect meal as someone who ranked in state on their competitive forensics team in high school.
What is your rebuttal to those who say that Texas barbecue is better than Kansas City barbecue? Tennessee saying hello but c'mon c'mon why y'all arguing about your nonsense we're the only ones so I'm not claiming but I know Kansas City BBQ is the best. I would also like to find another. r NFL stadium that smells so good following United closely the nicest smelling parking lot in the NFL that's what they say that's right now some of the people there at the game I'm not I wouldn't I wouldn't put I won't call my money a Camaro a head for nothing.
Have you mastered the art of cooking on your boat? Re an egg and that big green egg still not. I know I haven't mastered it. I'm lovin 'it. i tried this summer i really tried to get it my kids were making fun of me because i was watching youtube videos of people doing things in a green egg i had i bought all the accessories they're called accessories there's something that screams middle age like that yeah i need a second , little one, you need, I see why people take a second and walk around, feel free, you can always take a lab, no, we're locked up, locked up in vain, touch that thing people always used to say. the 50's and 60's how we all smoked their cigarettes we didn't know they were it's bad for us and as a kid i'd say come on how could you how could you not know i feel the same way about the bomb you try that and right away you know you know that that's not good for you, yeah, yeah, you want to look at what's going on in Gotti, what's up, guys, cats, all these sides turn pink yellow? i'm setting a very high bar whatever the reason you know people get really excited when someone makes it without water or milk cool it was thin air fine you and as Tali Barry and Guy Fieri say it again is Viet II what? do you think? it's Fieri, well probably not, I think if you were talking to him and told him that Fieri would correct you and save Yeti, oh that guy, then he's a great introduction. time you knocked him out of the man in the park which was a more memorable experience joining a Cantonese cast for Gen X cops or appearing in that apocalyptic Super Nintendo commercial in the early 90s well it was a question well both were memorable because both changed the world as we know it filming with an all-Cantonese cast in Hong Kong and this Jackie Chan-produced sequel to Generation X Cops was spectacularly bizarre.
I play the head of the FBI. They want to bleach my hair blonde and I have to go after a robot. Nothing about this screamed quality. either way, yes absolutely not, I want to go to Hong Kong for two months, that's a nice second. I want to go to Hong Kong for two months and see what it's all about and it was great, they were a great city, this is great. ok, this is yours, what if we put a little of each? You're ripped I'm going to make a little puddle of hot sauce look at us Hey check this out look at us huh who would have thought not me maybe these are props okay I got that bomb for Kansas City from Kansas City what? can I brothers/sisters?

I like the board it looks like an abstract painting well you want to see an abstract painting huh but Jackson Pollock oh yeah when we finish filming this segment I must say that's a great idea that's a great build for an interview , Thank you. but i think you're a terrific interview oh thanks you didn't even need the hot sauce.
