Check Out The Official Trailer For Paul Rudd’s WWII Drama ‘The Catcher Was A Spy’ [VIDEO]

The official trailer for Paul Rudd’s World War II drama “The Catcher Was A Spy” dropped Wednesday and it looks like a great ride.

In the video posted on YouTube, the actor plays Boston Red Sox catcher Moe Berg who is recruited by the U.S. government to spy on the Germans before they can successfully launch a fisson bomb.


“You’re an unusual man Mr. Berg. You speak seven languages. You’re an athlete. You’re more than up to the physical requirements for the job,” Jeff Daniels’ character is heard in the clip saying to Berg.

“What job?” Rudd’s character asked in response.

In the next scene, we hear Paul Giamatti’s character telling Berg his job is to get close to Nazi scientists leading the nuclear program to find out how close they are to creating the bomb.

Berg, who graduated from Princeton and Columbia and spoke multiple languages, helped America win the war before joining the CIA, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

“A major league baseball player, Moe Berg, lives a double life working for the Office of Strategic Services,”  the description on IMDb about the movie read.

“The Catcher Was A Spy” hits theaters June 22.
