He might be a giant in Hollywood thanks to his role as Ant-Man, but Paul Rudd already has some stiff competition - from his own son, Jack.
The pair appeared in a post-game interview during this year's Super Bowl (12 February), in which Jack grabbed fans’ attention by sounding exactly like his famous father.
The 17-year-old has quickly gone viral on TikTok, with one clip of the interview being watched over 6.5 million times since game day.
Even Jack’s body language is almost identical to his dad’s, with the teenager crossing him arms and putting his hands in his pockets as he mirrors Rudd.
When he does start to speak about the game and, it’s almost too much for Fox Sport presenter Peter Schrager - who struggles to contain his laughter.
“I just wanna thank Patrick Mahomes for existing... I cannot believe he is a real person,” gushed Jack, still on a high from watching his team win the Super Bowl.
Not long after the interview aired on live TV, it began to circulate online with fans going wild over the Rudds' resemblance.
“He looks like a random kid doing an insanely accurate Paul Rudd impression," joked one user.
Another fan wrote: “Not even just the sound of the voice. Literally down to the exact cadence, the WAY he says things is exactly the same.”
“Everyone-we all need more Paul Rudd *enter Jack Rudd*,” said one besotted fan.
One shocked user could believe how alike the pair looked, writing: “Bruh could’ve told me that was Paul Rudd in his younger days.”
Many wonder whether Jack had inherited his ageless looks, with another fan adding: “However old Jack Rudd currently is, he's gonna look that age for the next 45 years of his life”.
While everyone else might be blown away by their similarity, Rudd’s son couldn’t be less bothered.
According to the actor, Jack only realised he was famous a few years ago.
“I think that my son, when he was about 4 or 5, went to a movie theater to see a movie with his friends. There was a movie poster that I was on. It was in the lobby. So they all just thought that I worked at the movie theater, which I thought was very cute,” the-53 year-old admitted, while appearing on the Today show.
He added: “I think when he was 15, he finally put it all together."
Well, I guess it’s hard to not be down to Earth with a dad like Paul Rudd.
