Paul Rudd was seen handing out cookies to people waiting in the rain to vote.

The Ant-Man actor, 51, visited a polling station in Brooklyn on Thursday (29 October) to thank the voters queueing to cast their votes early in the US presidential election.

A video posted to social media by Guster drummer Brian Rosenworcel saw Rudd dressed casually in a hoodie, jeans, cap and face mask while handing out the cookies to voters sheltering under umbrellas.

“I want to say thank you for coming out and voting and doing your part,” Rudd tells the queue.

In September, Rudd appeared in a PSA encouraging millennials to wear face masks to stop the spread of coronavirus.

Playing into the internet joke that he hasn’t aged a day since making his film debut in 1995’s Clueless, the actor is shown carrying a skateboard while introducing himself as a “certified young person”.

Rudd explains that New York governor Andrew Cuomo asked him to deliver the public health message: “He said ‘Paul, you gotta help. What are you like 26?’ And I didn’t correct him.

“He’s just going off about how us millennials need to wear masks because, get this, apparently a lot of Covid is transmitted by us millennials.”
