My career took a left turn after Anchorman. I had done some comedies before, but I'm not a comedian. I didn't study sketch comedy — my background isn't that.
I don't consider myself a comedian because I don't really concern myself too much with jokes.
Theater is the most enriching and thrilling thing to do as an actor.
I just shot a scene with Captain America and Iron Man. In Ant-Man I felt I was in a bit of a bubble, but the other day I looked around and for the first time I could say, “I’m in the band.”
I knew I was part of the Marvel Universe, I knew I was in it and it was exciting to feel as if I was in it, but it was much more real when I was standing next to Captain America or Iron Man or a few of the other guys, and you look around and go, “Oh wow, there they are. There’s that silver arm, there it is in person.” I turned into a 10-year-old kid, it was amazing.
