Before hitting the box-office stratosphere with his portrayal of Ant-Man, Paul Rudd's unique persona - a blend of heartfelt and hilarious - landed him roles in a huge range of movies, from serious indies like Niel LaBute's The Shape of Things to comedies like the Ivan-Reitman-produced I Love You Man. But MG argues that it was in 2001's little-seen The Chateau where Rudd found his voice.  Co-starring Weeds' Romany Malco and directed by Our Idiot Brother's Jesse Peretz, this bizarre gem combines sit-com setups with proto-mumblecore drama in a way that brought out the best in Rudd - and fourteen years later got him the ant-suit!
