July is shaping up to be a big month for our man in Hollywood, Paul Rudd. His new movie, “Ant-Man,” debuts in a couple of weeks. And on Wednesday he was immortalized with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Rudd’s “Ant-Man” co-star Michael Douglas and Adam Scott, who starred in the Starz comedy “Party Down,” which Rudd created, spoke at the ceremony.

“I remember being a kid and walking this boulevard and reading the names and thinking about what so many other millions of people thought about, which is, ‘Who’s that?’” said Rudd, who grew up in Overland Park.

“The fact that millions of people are going to be able to now see me and ask that same question … is humbling beyond belief.”

Rudd’s star is next to the El Capitan Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard. It was the 2,554th star installed on the famous sidewalk.
