Exclusive: Paul Rudd responds to Ant-Man casting rumours

When we were given the chance to interview the cast of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues , there were - predictably - rather a few laughs.

But we also took the opportunity to press Paul Rudd on those persistent Ant-Man rumours.

Watch the video below to find out (oh, and listen to Steve Carell weighing in on the news, too).

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues is in UK cinemas from 18 December 2013.
