Rob Corddry Wants To Be In The ANT-MAN Movie

Rob Corddry Wants To Be In The ANT-MAN Movie

Speaking in an interview for his next movie Hell Baby Rob Corddry expressed his desire to be in Edgar Wright's Ant-Man the villain! Read on to find out what the actor had to say in full..

Rob Corddry is perhaps not the first person you think of when conjuring a shortlist for comic book villains, but this particular fiend is his dream role.

“I want to play the bad guy in Ant-Man. The bad guy in Ant-Man. Tell the world!”

This confession was given in an interview with Comic Book Resources so he may have just been playing to the audience, but despite his eagerness to face off against the Marvel Universe’s tiniest hero, the casting news hasn't come yet. But who knows. If they are going to play up the comedy, it might not be a bad choice. Corddry has distinguished himself in similar genres and could definitely play it straight if need be.

2+ years out and word is getting around. Nice. Ant-Man will have some decent, I gotta go there, buzz by the time it comes out.
EdgyOutsider - 9/4/2013, 8:32 PM
I wouldn't mind this. I'm sure he has some dramatic chops. Please don't be Egghead though lol
Bearjew - 9/4/2013, 8:39 PM
Give him a part, just have him be a dickhead SHIELD agent
Bearjew - 9/4/2013, 8:40 PM
Like how Coulson was a liaison for Thor and Iron Man
OldBenKenobi - 9/4/2013, 8:43 PM
Lmao I can't tell if he's serious or not. Either way I'd still watch it!

Would love to see him play Deadpool instead.
SnapperCarr - 9/4/2013, 8:50 PM
Egghead could work. So could Whirlwind, Radioactive Man or MODOK.
BrotherStarkofMABMindz - 9/4/2013, 8:56 PM
He is hilarious, funniest in Hot Tub Time Machine. Sign him up Marvel

Giznad - 9/4/2013, 9:05 PM
I love that man.
JoeMomma29 - 9/4/2013, 9:06 PM
He is actually a really nice guy in person. He is a great and funny actor, hopefully they will find a role for him.

I've enjoyed Rob Corddry since he was on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.
California - 9/4/2013, 9:17 PM
Hm... Dude is cool but I hope he's not implying that he'd want a comedic, hammed-up role. We're waaaay beyond that. The last CBM that didn't take itself seriously as a movie as was apologist and corny because it was a "Comic Book Movie" was Green Lantern and look how well that movie did.
BrowniesExplode - 9/4/2013, 9:31 PM
I want to know who will they pick to play ant-man.
ralfinader - 9/4/2013, 9:32 PM
I want Rob Corddry to be in Ant-Man. Make it happen.
jimoakley666 - 9/4/2013, 9:39 PM
I like Corddry in that he's not a comedian, but a pretty good actor who can play comedic roles. He was very good in the recent Warm Bodies.

I never really got the Harold & Kumar films. They're very typical American comedies in that a lot of 'stuff' happens, but none of it is particularly funny.

surprised no one said it, so in the name of eventual unnecessary NERD RAGE:

xXkryptoniteXx - 9/4/2013, 9:47 PM
He wants the money and all the glory that comic book movies grab these days.
SnapperCarr - 9/4/2013, 9:53 PM
@jimoakley666 Well its a funny stoner comedy that also pokes a lot of fun at racial stereotypes as well. And it stars the race that most people least expect to be stoners: Asian (Korean and Indian).

As an Indian guy, I think its pretty funny.
Hellboy6666 - 9/4/2013, 10:10 PM
Haven't they found their ant man? The fella from life of pie..pai...pi...I'm too lazy to look it up
Hellboy6666 - 9/4/2013, 10:13 PM
Also, no. Rob, your funny but most people who are campaigning for roles never get them. Pretend you don't care, introduce yourself to Edgar and smoke a bowl with him and then say, "dude, I could totally be the villain in your movie" Then offer him a cornetto and a cigarette and it's yours.
elib - 9/4/2013, 10:20 PM
This dude is awesome. Put him in any role
SnapperCarr - 9/4/2013, 10:25 PM
Meanwhile with Loki...

BlindJustice - 9/4/2013, 10:45 PM that a prequel to Hellboy? >.<

Yeah, get him on board. He'll make for some good laughs, but he can't be taken seriously...EVER.
BlindJustice - 9/4/2013, 10:47 PM
@SnapperCarr - Brilliant!
Bojac - 9/4/2013, 11:07 PM
I'm assuming he wants to be the bad guy in Ant-Man because he's seen online that they're making an Ant-Man movie and his thought is "Ant-Man? That's gonna be a stupid piece of shit." He probably has no idea who Edgar Wright is, unless you said "he directed Shaun of the Dead" and then he'd go "Oh yeah! I know of that!"
devil - 9/4/2013, 11:07 PM
he can play egghead
MightyZeus - 9/5/2013, 12:19 AM
He can play Egghead. Although the studio has to eventually pick whose going to play Antman, they sure are taking there time though.

What does this have to do with Batman/Superman??
Enphlieuwince - 9/5/2013, 3:40 AM
@AutoFreek, nothing at all, thank the heavens. I know you're a lil confused because "Antman" has a lot of the same letters as "Batman" but you need to sound it out next time. Better yet, just search for "Affleck" and you'll get there...
PsyGuy - 9/5/2013, 5:01 AM
Loved him in Warm Bodies ... and Happy Endings if anyone has heard of it!

Worried with all these comic actors attached in the rumors for this film. I would hope for a serious film, not comedy throughout. Even RDJ is not a comic actor, but could pull off comic lines in an overall serious film...
crawley - 9/5/2013, 5:42 AM
Duhhhhh, why has no one said? KLAW!!!
MatioShack - 9/5/2013, 9:40 AM
Children's Hospital one of the funniest things on TV right now. He cracks me up in that show.
knocturnalzen10 - 9/5/2013, 11:43 AM
why would he wan to play an a**hole abusive subpar hero
marvel sucks cheeks
Dandy - 9/5/2013, 11:57 AM
This guy is awesome. I wouldn't mind seeing him as an older Hank Pym to counterbalance the younger Scott Lang.
Joementum - 9/6/2013, 9:00 AM
Which villian?
In an attempt to save his beloved Ravonna, Corddry hacks the Hot Tub begins his search as .......... KANG ! (the Comedian?)
AUSSYACE - 9/6/2013, 10:37 PM
