SECONDLY, I WAS WATCHING THIS MOVIE, I MEAN TV SHOW, IT EXCITED ME THINKING ABOUT HAVING ANOTHER ONE OF ME, AND LIKE I JUST THOUGHT, LIKE, MAYBE IT MAKES ME SOUND LIKE AN EGOTIST, BUT I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE ANOTHER ONE OF ME.>>WHAT WOULD YOU DO? WHO WOULD DO THE SHOW?>>Jimmy: WE’D TRADE-OFF, YOU KNOW?>>NICE.>>Jimmy: MASTURBATION WOULD BE WEIRD. BUT, JUST TO HAVE ANOTHER ME TO HANG OUT WITH.>>HOW SO? [ LAUGHTER ] BUT NO, I THINK IT WOULD BE A FUN THING, BUT I WILL SAY THIS. THERE’S AN OPENING SCENE OF THE SHOW IS, AND I HOPE I’M NOT RUINING ANYTHING, BUT I’M GOING TO RUIN SOMETHING. YOU ARE, ONE OF YOUR CLONE, YOUR REAL SELF IS BURIED UNDER THE EARTH AND IS CLAWING OUT OF A SHALLOW GRAVE AND YOU HAVE A BAG OVER YOUR HEAD.>>DISTURBING, SEND IT?>>Jimmy: AND THIS, TO ME, LOOKED LIKE THE WORST THING ANYONE WOULD EVER HAVE TO DO. WAS IT TERRIBLE?>>IT WAS HORRIBLE. I READ THIS IN THE SCRIPT AND THOUGHT, WHAT A REALLY, THAT’S A COOL WAY TO OPEN THE SHOW, AND I STUPIDLY DIDN’T THINK ABOUT WHAT IT WOULD BE LIKE TO FILM IT, BECAUSE I’M ALSO JUST WEARING A DIAPER, AS WELL, BUT WE SHOWED UP. IT WAS KIND OF AT THE BEGINNING OF THE SHOOT, AND I WALKED TO THE SET, WHICH WAS JUST IN A PUBLIC PARK, BY THE WAY.>>Jimmy: MM-HM. REALLY?>>YEAH, PEOPLE ARE RIDING THEIR BIKES. I’M IN A DIAPER INTO A GRAVE. I SAW THIS OPEN GRAVE, AND I THOUGHT, OH, AND THEN I SAID, WELL, WHAT’S THAT? AND THERE WAS A TUBE STICKING OUT INTO THE GRAVE, AND THEY SAID, WELL, WE HAVE TO BURY YOU, SO YOU HAVE TO PUT YOUR MOUTH OVER THAT LIKE A SNORKEL, OTHERWISE I WOULDN’T BE ABLE TO BREATHE.>>Jimmy: WHICH IS BAD.>>YEAH, IT’S NOT GOOD.>>Jimmy: NO.>>SO I HAD TO BE WRAPPED IN A BAG AND BREATHE THROUGH THIS TUBE AND THEY KEPT PUTTING DIRT OVER ME, AND THERE’S A NATURAL INSTINCT IN ALL OF US KNOWS THAT THAT’S BAD.>>Jimmy: YEAH, RIGHT.>>AND IT WAS REALLY, UH, IT WAS AWFUL.>>Jimmy: IT SEEMED AWFUL.>>YEAH, IT WAS TERRIBLE.>>Jimmy: AND I DON’T KNOW WHY I’M COMFORTED TO KNOW.>>AND IT WAS COLD!>>Jimmy: HOW DO YOU KEEP THE TWO, ARE THE TWO CHARACTERS DIFFERENT?>>THEY ARE DIFFERENT.>>Jimmy: IN WHAT WAYS? >>YOU KNOW, ONE IS, IT’S BASICALLY THIS GUY WHO’S NOT IN THE GREATEST PLACE IN HIS LIFE. AND HE’S JUST, YOU KNOW, TIRED AND HE’S, HIS MARRIAGE ISN’T GREAT, WORK ISN’T GREAT. SO HE GOES TO THIS SPA, BECAUSE HIS CO-WORKER SAYS I WENT, I FEEL FANTASTIC. SO HE GOES AND TURNS OUT, IT’S NOT EXACTLY WHAT HE THOUGHT IT WAS GOING TO BE. AND THIS CLONING THING HAPPENS. AND THE ORIGINAL GUY IS SUPPOSED TO DIE.>>Jimmy: NOW THERE’S TWO OF THE GUYS.>>I DON’T, I COME BACK. BUT NOW THERE’S THIS NEW AND IMPROVED VERSION OF ME.>>Jimmy: AH.>>SAN FRA>>SO SOME OF THE DIFFERENCES, WE THOUGHT IT CAN’T BE SO EXTREME. HAIR IS A LITTLE DIFFERENT, POSTURE IS A LITTLE DIFFERENT. CLOTHES ARE DIFFERENT. CLOTHES ARE BAGGIER AND SH LUMPIER WITH THE OLD GUY AND THE NEW GUY’S PUT TOGETHER. I HAD A REALLY EMBARRASSING MOMENT. I GET REALLY INTO IT. I GET FOCUSSED. AND WHEN I WAS PLAYING THE NEW VERSION THERE WAS A SCENE I WAS DOING AND I’M ALL TUCKED IN AND PUT TOGETHER. AND I’M THINKING ABOUT THE SCENE AND SOMETHING THAT A TRICK YOU CAN DO TO TUCK IN YOUR SHIRT, INSTEAD OF TUCKING YOUR SHIRT IN LIKE THIS I WILL UNZIP MY FLY AND I RICH IN AND PULL DOWN THE FRONT OF MY SHIRT.>>Jimmy: I DO THAT, TOO. CLETO SENIOR TAUGHT ME TO DO THAT.>>IT’S GREATEST THING.>>Jimmy: MM-HM.>>I’M PULLING THE SHIRT WITH MY HAND DOWN MY FLY AND I LOOKED UP AND REALIZED OH, THERE’S 30 PEOPLE IN THE SCENE AND THEY’RE ALL LOOKING AT ME LAUGHING, BECAUSE IT WAS THE GROSSEST, MOST PORNOGRAPHIC. YOU KNOW, HAND DOWN MY PANTS.>>Jimmy: SO THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TWO CHARACTERS IS ONE TOUCHES HIMSELF IN PUBLIC.>>WELL, THAT’S WHY I WAS INTERESTED IN THE MASTURBATION.>>Jimmy: PAUL RUDD! “LIVING WITH YOURSELF” PREMIERES TOMORROW ON NETFLIX. WE’LL BE RIGHT BACK.

  1. Is Paul drunk? Does anyone else have this feeling? I watched Hot Ones as well… I feel a little uncomfortable. …idk???

  2. This movie sounds a lot like the rick and morty episode with the booger rick being evil.
    By the way, Gemini Man is just Metal gear solid with Will smith. Just sayin'.

  3. The only people who would want a clone of themselves are those who think they're already pretty great if not perfect. Most people would want an improved version, an upgrade if you will.

  4. In another universe he would be my husband and we would have lots of little Rudd's and I would get to kiss his face every bleeding day.

  5. He's genuinely funny, actually seems like a really nice guy, and appears to be aging in reverse.

    Dammit Rudd, STOP IT. You're showing everybody else up.

  6. Paul Rudd's stock keeps rising.. what an amazing actor.. live long and prosper my friend.. btw.. Living with Yourself is a great show!

  7. I had to re-watch his entrance and you can clearly see the shock at the split second (and the indecision 00:03)
    Then the half dancing and semi commitment to the half dance (00:04)

  8. Paul Rudd and his secrets but be protected at all costs. He doesn’t want to keep secrets and doesn’t like press junkets. It’s up to us to keep him safe

  9. Thank God they've dumped the ridiculous female version of Ghostbusters. Something done to appease the "feminist fringe" was never going to work. You can tell that was the last idea the "Board" came up with before they went to bed.

  10. I wish Craig Ferguson was still doing late night because he was just as genuine as Paul Rudd is and that would be one fun interview. Kümmel just seems so fake and has zero chemistry with everyone.

  11. OUÏ ANTENNES MAN!MON NOM D'ORIGINE EST CHROME DÉBILE MENTAL!CELUI QUI TRADUITS LES CODES IGNIORANT! VOTRE NUMÉRIQUE JE LES DANS MON C? J'AI PAS BESOIN DE NUMÉRATION?? POUR REIGNIER

  12. After watching Living With Yourself all I want to hear him talk about is Miles. He was so lovable and I am still having withdrawal syndrome.

  13. Everyone talking about immortality and Jimmy’s horrible interview skills. We all are forgetting the real reason why this video exists… Ghostbusters! Been literally waiting all of my life for this one movie.

  14. I really hope they get this Ghostbusters right….. hope it's NOTHING like the last "reboot" one.. I didn't even watch it… I'm a huge fan of the original ones…

  15. After watching Hot Ones, I can see what Paul meant by it being more of commercial rather than actual interview when it comes to late night. You can see he has to put on the comedic façade here because that’s what we are expecting of him as opposed to is Hot Ones interview where he gets to be a lot more relaxed and natural with his answers.

  16. Just binge watched 'living with yourself' – I found myself constantly saying 'this is the weirdest show ever' but I also could not stop myself from watching it…(in conclusion I think… its great and … I think I'm excited to see the next season)

  17. I just watched a couple of episodes of living with yourself and it's fantastic! Paul Rudd is such a great actor that he actually personifies two distinctly different people as the same guy!It's amazing to watch.
