T-minus one week and counting until the very last Late Show with David Letterman and the tributes are coming faster and faster, and sadder and sadder.

It’s only fitting.

It was more of an excuse for Rudd to say goodbye to Letterman and pay his respects before the final show, but Rudd did bring along the first Ant-Man clip and tried his best to explain what this movie is about.

Playing off that chemistry, the cast of Avengers: Age of Ultron — Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo and Jeremy Renner — appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night and played a rousing game of Family Feud.
