Young people may only know Michael Douglas as the occasionally cranky and deeply principled scientist Hank Pym from Ant-Man and its sequel Ant-Man And The Wasp, but it turns out that he actually had a long and storied acting career before ever signing on to talk to ants in a couple of Marvel movies. For anyone who’d like a quick introduction to Douglas or a refresher on some of highlights, Vanity Fair has put together an 11-minute video of him breaking down the major moments of his acting career—from playing an unnamed driver in his father’s Cast A Giant Shadow to talking about the quantum realm with Paul Rudd.

With less than a dozen minutes, though, this video does leave out a handful of notable Michael Douglas roles, but at least there’s time for some fun showbiz stories and old clips.
