Paul Rudd: Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis | Netflix Is A Joke


(mellow synth music) – What was that thing you
were complaining about, the Me Too Movement,
before we started rolling? What was that? – I wasn’t, no. I wasn’t complaining about that. – Oh, now you don’t wanna say anything, now that the cameras are going. Okay, I mean… Hi, welcome to another edition
of “Between Two Ferns.” My guest today is Paul Rudd. Thank you, Paul. – Thank you. – Some people have it all, looks, talent. How does it feel to only have looks? – Great. – I read that you might quit
acting and just disappear? – Where did you read that? – Right here, I wrote it down. Which do you prefer,
being in Marvel movies or being in stuff that
nobody’s ever heard of? – Being in Marvel movies. – I mean, do you go to
your acting coach and go, “I’ve gotta play a god damn
ant, what am I supposed to do?” – You lost me at acting coach. – Yeah, that seems about right. Do you have any tips for people
who have to interview you who are worried that they
might die of boredom? – Well, you could maybe
feign interest in me– – That’s all I do is feign. I’m not interested in you. I’m feigning right now. – Clearly. No, I got that outta the gate. – Okay, tell us how you got
your start in show business. – Um, well, I mean I– – I mean, can you just do it
without the ums and the pauses? Can you just like. (fingers snapping loudly) – I fucked my way to the top. – You fucked your way to the C-list. – Yeah. – I mean, most people try
to go a couple letters up. Up to the A. – I went right to the middle. – Yeah. What advice would you
give to a young actor who wants to hide his
Jewishness as well as you have? – But I’ve never really
tried to hide my Jewishness. – I’ve never really tried
to hide my Jewishness. – Yeah. – Jesus was Jewish and he didn’t hide it. – No, he put it out there
for everybody to see. He’s one of our best. – You practicing? – No, I’m not a practicing Jew. I’ve perfected it. – Do you have any advice
for aspiring young actors who want to become comedy-adjacent? – Comedy-adjacent? – Not comedy, but comedy’s neighbor. – I think I know what you’re saying. – Not necessarily invited
to comedy’s house, but sometimes you can come
over and borrow a cup of sugar. – I can hang out with comedy. – Yeah, yeah.
– At comedy’s house– – Just don’t do your comedy. – Well, yeah, get to know Will Ferrell. – Regarding your career, do you think it would be just as rewarding if you played roles that
weren’t forgettable? – When I’m taking on a role, I like to think that I’m trying, I’m making it memorable in some way. Is there anything that I have played that has been memorable to you? – Weren’t you in a commercial
for a bank, or something? I don’t do commercials. – I know. – Because, why do you know that? – Because I can’t imagine
any advertising company wanting you to try and sell their product. – Why? Anybody can do it, it’s friggin’ easy. – Hi, I’m Zach. Have you tried this Oykos yogurt? – If you’re gonna go with
that anti-Greek racist stuff, or wherever you’re going with this, your people are lucky that my people set the
bar for your people. – That you would even refer
to my people is offensive. – You just said that all Greeks
eat yogurt and fuck goats. You just said that. – I didn’t, I just said you. Not all Greeks, you eat
yogurt and fuck goats. Good luck with whoever you interview next. I sure it will go better than this. Or maybe not. – Even the way he walked
off was forgettable. Nobody will remember
that you just walked off, I promise you. Even if I leave it in
there, no one will remember. Especially if I leave it in the edit, no one will remember it. “Who was he just interviewing? “Was that just air, or was
that a collection of atoms “and matter of a human being “that doesn’t know what
the fuck is going on? “Is that what I just witnessed?” That’s probably what they would say. “Oh, I’ve seen that guy in a movie. “I remembered that I forgot about him.” See this? This air is 95% better than
what was occupying that chair. I’ll just talk to the chair then. Do you have any other projects going on? Fuck, what the fuck am I doing? (mellow synth music) “Between Two Ferns: The Movie,” it’s streaming now on Netflix. Hip-hip, line. – [Man] Hooray. – Hip-hip hooray.
