It's Ant-Man 2.0!

In the world of celebrity lookalikes (opens in new tab), particularly celebs with lookalike kids (opens in new tab), I present to you the ultimate dad-son twinning moment of them all: Paul Rudd and his son Jack Sullivan Rudd at this year's Super Bowl. Jack is only 14 (he's the older of Paul and wife Julie Yaeger's two kids), but it is clear that he is on his way to looking the exact same as his dad. 

The picture was initially highlighted as an "Avengers" moment by ET (Jeremy Renner plays Clint Barton/Hawkeye, while Rudd plays Scott Lang/Ant-Man) but fans immediately spotted that Jack was Paul's mini-me. Seriously, just look at him. The same eyebrow shape. The same jaw. The same height. The same adorable smirk. The only difference is Jack's hair is a little floofier—although, looking at pictures of Paul as a young man (see below) his hair was also floofy back then. 

This isn't the first time we've seen Jack join his dad at an event, but he has grown so much since he appeared when Paul was getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame:

Here's the ET Avengers post where fans first noticed the similarities:

And here's Paul in 1999, with that same floofy hair:

Good lord. Okay, but his son should totally act alongside him in a movie, right? Right??
