Paul Rudd will not divulge secrets
Anthony Harvey/Getty Images(CNN) - Paul Rudd may be the most trustworthy man in Hollywood. The actor, who appeared on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" Thursday, would not reveal the secret to his seemingly endless youth and refused to dish about his upcoming "Ghostbusters" movie. "I just finished about two weeks ago," Rudd told Kimmel, adding that the director is Jason Reitman, who is the son of Ivan Reitman, the director of the original "Ghostbusters." "There's something special about that," Rudd said. But Rudd did talk about his new Netflix show, "Living With Yourself," in which he plays a man who gets cloned in a spa mishap.

Paul Rudd does double duty in new series
Jemal Countess/Getty Images(CNN) - Paul Rudd does double duty in "Living With Yourself," a bizarrely twisty, highly inventive dark comedy that, among other things, considers the elusive quest for happiness. The premise, frankly, really doesn't do this Netflix series justice, as the producers somehow keep pulling rabbits -- and unexpected wrinkles -- out of hats. Rudd plays Miles, an ordinary sort who is seemingly living a life of suburban bliss, sleepwalking through a reasonably successful middle-management job and marriage to Kate ((Aisling Bea), even if there's not an abundance of spark left. After that, though, they proceed to basically share Miles' life, with all the discomfort, near misses and resentments that entails. Rudd plays it all with a mix of comedy and pathos, somehow differentiating his double role, even if they're both versions -- down to their memories -- of the same dude.
