Ant-Man star Paul Rudd was spotted at the Sag Harbor Carnival on Thursday evening, August 6. Our spies say Rudd was with a large group of children and adults, presumably—but not definitely—family. The actor enjoyed the big slide at the carnival and was generous with at least one young fan who complimented Rudd for his performance in Marvel’s Ant-Man film, which reached $300 million at the worldwide box office on Friday.
Rudd’s new Netflix series Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp premiered on the streaming service July 31. A followup to the cult classic film Wet Hot American Summer, the show also stars Elizabeth Banks, Jason Schwartzman, Hamptons visitor and Marvel movie alum Bradley Cooper, Michael Ian Black, Amy Poehler, Janeane Garofalo and Hamptons regular Molly Shannon, among many others.
Actress and Amagensett resident Naomi Watts was also spotted at the Sag Harbor Carnival on Thursday, though separately from Rudd. On Saturday, Watts was also seen at the Fisherman’s Fair in Springs with at least one of her two children, fathered by her partner and Ray Donovan star Liev Schreiber.
Frequent costar of Rudd’s and fellow Judd Apatow favorite Jason Segel, of Forgetting Sarah Marshall and The Muppets, was seen with a female friend at Sylvester & Co. in Sag Harbor Village last Sunday, August 3. Segel stars in the new David Foster Wallace biopic The End of the Tour, which tells the story of a five-day interview between Rolling Stone reporter David Lipsky and novelist David Foster Wallace right after he published his lengthy and acclaimed novel Infinite Jest in 1996. Foster Wallace committed suicide in 2008.
Rudd’s next film as Ant-Man Scott Lang, The Avengers: Civil War, is currently in production. The third film in Marvel’s box office smashing Avengers series, Civil War splits America’s superheroes into two factions as they fight over the U.S. government’s Super Human Registration Act—if the film follows the comics, anyway.
