"I'm a little hot and sweaty because I thought this was in an hour... but it's not. It's now."
'Avengers' co-stars Paul Rudd and Chris Evans have come together to have a big of fun together over video conference for our utmost entertainment - and it's a cracker of an interview.
Believe it or not, the actors have only played alongside each-other in two of the Marvel Cinematic Universe's movies - in 'Captain America: Civil War' and 'Avengers: Endgame' - as Ant-Man and Captain America. However, the pair seem like two peas in a superhero pod, as they take turns interviewing the other about all of their previous acting back-catalogue and pivitol moments in their careers.
Rudd, talking about his performance of Mike Hannigan in 'Friends' (when we first met the comedic actor), said that he always felt like a "prop" on the show compared to the main cast. The actor, who was originally only supposed to appear briefly in the series, explained: "In something like 'Friends', the show was about them, but it’s an interesting thing to be a part of.
"I was only in it for just a blip. I felt, 'I’m like a prop on this show. It’s not about Mike Hannigan'. But there’s a very interesting feeling to be a part of something that has that kind of profound impact on pop culture."
The first day that the pair ever met each-other also entered the conversation, as Evans chats about getting Rudd to dance in a video recording on his phone - and he still has the footage. The scenario went down like this: "I don’t know if you remember this. On that day, it was literally the day I met you, [Anthony] Mackie and I and Scarlett [Johansson] got in our head that we were going to shoot — this is so hilarious — a little video just for the Marvel gang, like a little culmination, like a yearbook video, set to that song from 'Grease'. 'We go together, like rama lama,' whatever that song is.
"I was like, 'Hi, nice to meet you. You don’t know me, but can I get this?' It was you, Mackie, I think [Jeremy] Renner, Sebastian [Stan], and I just said, 'Look, everyone, just dance for 30 seconds,' and you did it. You were a great sport. You willingly danced with little explanation from me, and then I never completed the video. I just abandoned it. But I got that footage of our first day of meeting of you dancing."
The topic of Rudd's ever-youthful skin also came up in the interview, with Evans asking the 51-year-old: "Why don’t you age? Are you drinking baby blood?"
To which Rudd responds: "I most certainly age."
Here's the full clip of Paul Rudd and Chris Evans have a goofy, yet serious, time together. Enjoy.
