Rob Corddry Wants To Play A Villain In Edgar Wright's ANT-MAN
While speaking with ComicBookResources comedic actor Rob Corddry (Hot Tub Time Machine, Operation: Endgame, Warm Bodies) revealed which comic book film he'd want to be apart of. He says he wants a shot at playing the villain in Edgar Wright's Ant-Man. It's an interesting proposal if it's not just Rob being humorous. Rob would make an excellent S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, similar to the casting of John C. Reilly in Guardians of The Galaxy. However, it sounds like he's looking more at the meatier role of Elihas Starr (Egghead). I assume that Starr could be apart of A.I.M. which was established in Iron Man 3, with Aldrich Killian. It's the second time we've heard an actor asking to play the baddie in the film, the first one being Simon Pegg. Pegg recently removed himself as a possibility for the project and crushed rumors of taking a lead role.
“I want to play the bad guy in Ant-Man. The bad guy in Ant-Man. Tell the world!”
