Rudd appears on The Late Show for promoting his movie Ant-Man. He talks about how he was a member of a Letterman fan club as a child.
About 30 years ago, when you first started the show, back when the [Kansas City] Royals were in the World Series, I joined the David Letterman fan club…What it included was a pin, a collapsible drinking cup, a sponge that – if you put in water – would grow, a back scratcher and a balloon.
Rudd gives his thoughts on which of his films influenced his life the most:
Wet Hot American Summer was the first one that felt like my own sensibility. It was just so fun. And Anchorman marked a tidal shift in my career. After that I started working with Judd [Apatow] and doing a lot more comedies.
Rudd gives interview to Elle about growing up while moving around a lot and if it had any part in him choosing acting as a career.
I’m sure that somehow played into my dysfunction. I’m sure that my wanting to be an actor had to do with a need for approval. People say, `Oh yeah, I do it for the art.’ It’s like, `No, you do it so people will tell you that you’re worthy.
