Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly. How do I love them? Let me count the ways. Okay, I can’t count all the ways, but it’s lots.
Paul Rudd | Ant-Man
Those of us in our 40s probably share a common first memory of seeing Paul Rudd in a movie. Josh. CLUELESS. Am I right? Who didn’t fall in love with him during that movie? It’s like, he’ll always be Josh first, but since I’ve become enthralled by the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he’s Ant-Man. Scott Lang. Awesome dad. Former Baskin Robbins employee. Super Hero. Cap’s new friend. That last part got him in big trouble, but it’s all good. You’ll see.
Evangeline Lilly | The Wasp
If you don’t count the final season, LOST is one of my favorite shows ever, and Evangeline Lilly is a huge part of why it is. No one but Evangeline Lilly could have played Kate Austen. She was tough and strong, but she was also sensitive. A best friend. A partner. Her portrayal of Hope Van Dyne, The Wasp, is nothing short of amazing. Just like no one else could have played Kate, no one else could possibly play Hope like Evangeline Lilly plays her.
She’s a genius quantum physicist. And she finally gets to take on the role of Super Hero…just like her parents before her. I love that she can be vulnerable and a concerned daughter, and a totally kickin’ Super Hero at the same time. As I followed the Twitter feed during the interview with Evangeline Lilly, one thing really stuck with me. She said that she wasn’t interested in acting until someone told her she was afraid of her own greatness. Evangeline decided to just let her light shine. We should let everyone shine!
Here is a great clip featuring Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly talking about the film. Watch through the end for a great Luis addition.
