Paul Rudd is clearly a man who loves seeing himself in different ways.

Not content with becoming much smaller and larger versions of himself in Marvel's Ant-Man films, the actor has now signed up to lead a new Netflix series which sees him play two versions of himself according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Living With Yourself will see Rudd take on a dual role, as he stars as a man who is unhappy with his life and wants to become a better person.

He decides to undergo a radical new treatment which sees him being replaced by a new and improved version of himself – but is the new him really all he's cracked up to be?

The "fresh and inventive" comedy (according to Netflix) has been created by Timothy Greenberg, who is part of the team behind The Daily Show With Jon Stewart.

This won't be the first time that Rudd has taken part in a Netflix project, as he previously reprised his role as Andy from 2001 film Wet Hot American Summer for two TV sequels.

The actor is currently starring as the heroic Scott Lang, also known as Ant-Man, in Ant-Man and the Wasp and if you've seen it and didn't catch all these Easter eggs, you just may need to go and see it again.

Ant-Man and The Wasp is out now in the UK and US. Book tickets here.
