To Bat a Thousand (As a Spy)

The Catcher Was a Spy, and he will be portrayed by Paul Rudd on the silver screen.

See, the Ant-Man has signed on to play Moe Berg, the Ivy League grad and super-smart attorney who spent 15 years in Major League Baseball (even though he wasn’t good at playing ball at all), who also served as a top operative for the Office of Strategic Services, a forerunner for the CIA.

Bergs work helped America win the race against Germany to build the atomic bomb?

Doesn’t ring a bell? It will soon.

In the meantime, you can read the book by Nicholas Dawidoff upon which the project will be based.

Up next for Rudd, though, is a little indie by the title Captain America: Civil War that is opening next week. You might have heard of that one....
