Although the former late night fixture ended his TBS show last summer, Rudd's devotion to pranking O'Brien has not wavered. In a long-running gag, the "Ant-Man" actor sets up the joke by introducing a new project he's been working on. He then asks Conan to play a clip from the film or show which only ends up being a scene from the 1988 film "Mac and Me" in classic "Rickroll" fashion.
During an appearance on the "Conan O'Brien Needs a Friend" podcast, the MCU star was able to continue the prank by claiming to promote a scripted narrative podcast for Audible that he's developed with a cast of famous friends.
"It's been really kind of great because I don't normally get the opportunity to work on my own things like that," Rudd explained. "I'm usually a hired gun. But it's been fun, and I've been working on it and recording it with my friends."
The actor spoke of putting together a star-studded cast for the project including Adam Scott, Ken Marino and Celia Watson. He explained that he would be starring in the series as a publicist who falls in love with a woman from New Orleans working in a craft store.
