Ryan Reynolds Said He Loves Having Daughters and ‘Being a Girl Dad’

The coolest celebrities are the ones that don’t take themselves too seriously and manage to keep things in perspective, and few people check both boxes like Ryan Reynolds. He went up another notch in our book, thanks to his latest interview with Access Hollywood, where Reynolds talks about how much he loves ‘being a girl dad.’

We already appreciated Reynolds for stuff he’s done like Deadpool and bringing Rick Moranis out of retirement. We dig him even more for how much he loves being a dad. He was talking to Access Hollywood, promoting his new movie “The Croods: A New Age”, when he said his daughters (and wife Blake Lively) are ‘the most capable people I know.’

“If anything got scary in my life, they’re the first people I would lean on because they have wisdom and strength and they’re calm under fire,” he said. “They have courage under fire.”

Reynolds said, as the youngest of four boys, he never ‘in a million years’ imagined he’d have three daughters. But, he said he loves it.

“It has just been such a ride, and I love every second of it,” he said. He also explained that he and his wife don’t do movies at the same time, so the family can stay together at all times.

“ I think that’s been the best part of it is that we really don’t spend a lot of time apart. I get to spend a lot of time with my girls.”

Reynolds also feels the same frustration many parents have had when it comes to homeschooling. When he was on The Tonight Show in the spring, he said the family was getting through it by trying to make it as educational as possible, before joking (admitting?) he’s been “mostly drinking.”

Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney Bought a Soccer Team Together

“The Gang Buys A Welsh Football Club.” It’s the Always Sunny in Philadelphia episode you never knew you needed, now that actor (and Sunny co-creator) Rob McElhenney and movie star Ryan Reynolds have teamed up to buy a Welsh soccer team. It’s one of those stories that only make sense in 2020.

Reynolds, aka Deadpool and home school gin connoisseur, can seemingly do no wrong, so we’ll get to see if his magic touch can extend to Wrexham AFC, one of the oldest professional soccer teams and one that’s currently entrenched in the fifth tier of English soccer. But the two are serious about turning the team around and plan to make it a “global force” around the soccer universe.

“This is really happening,” Reynolds said in a video released by the team. The club is fan-owned and approved the takeover by the two celebrities. Apparently, the duo did a lot of research after deciding they wanted to buy a soccer team and thought Wrexham AFC had the most potential.

Reynolds said he and McElhenney want to be at as many games as possible (once fans are allowed, post-pandemic) and ‘want to have a pint with the fans.’ They also plan to be ‘great ambassadors for the club’ and want to introduce them to the world.

The Wrexham Supporters Trust Board voted overwhelmingly to sell to the two celebs, as they have serious plans for community engagement and plans to improve their standing in the soccer world. Chief among them is a behind-the-scenes documentary to help bring more fans into the fold.

“You may never have heard of Wrexham, but you will. So to the Wrexham Supporters Trust, thank you for your faith and trust in us,” McElhenney said.

Reynolds added: “We are humbled and we are already getting to work.”

So now that two of our coolest and funniest celebrities have bought a soccer team, we all have a Cinderella squad to root for as Wrexham AFC works its way out of the cellar of the soccer world.

Deadpool Enters MCU, Sequel Moving Forward With Writers From ‘Bob’s Burgers’

Deadpool is officially out of limbo. The kickass franchise, helmed by one of our favorites in Ryan Reynolds, delivered two fun movies while at FOX. Once acquired by Disney, many were left wondering if there would even be a Deadpool 3. And now, it is officially clear there will be, as Deadpool 3 is moving forward and has hired ‘Bob’s Burgers’ writers Wendy Molyneux and Lizzie Molyneux-Logelin.

Ryan Reynolds is great. He pulled Rick Moranis out of retirement, he relates to how all parents feel during quarantine life. But there’s no question the Deadpool movies have been his best work. And we weren’t sure what would happen once Marvel got its hands on the Merc with a mouth. Would they tame him? Bury the character? Replace Reynolds and go for a more family-friendly PG-13 approach?

Now, we have our answer, no and no. Deadpool is back, and he’s staying rated-R (where he belongs). There was even acknowledgment of the writer hire on the movie’s official Twitter page.

It’s a big move forward for the franchise, as Reynolds had said just months ago he ‘didn’t know what was happening’ in regards to another Deadpool, while still connecting with fans over the character. Supposedly, Reynolds and Marvel bigwigs had been interviewing writers to lock in to a great idea for the next movie and now that they have their duo, the project takes a big step forward.

So now Deadpool gets to officially enter the Marvel Cinematic Universe and gets to keep the edge that made the first two movies such a hit with fans. Will we see other MCU characters (or X-Men???) in the next one? Only time will tell there. Until then, fans can at least be relieved that the FOX-Disney merger didn’t kill the franchise, and they won’t be getting a Disney-fied sequel either.

But don’t get too excited, there’s a long way to go.

Ryan Reynolds Responds To Tweet, Donates Winter Gear To Kids in Northern Canada

Winter is coming. For some of us that means adding a layer or two, or finally admitting that it’s time to put away the sandals. But for kids in Nunavut, a territory of Northern Canada, winter means piling on every layer you own knowing you’ll probably still be cold. Temperatures in this sparsely-populated territory average around -30°C or -22°F in the winter, making proper cold weather attire a must-have. Unfortunately, many kids are under-equipped for the extreme temperatures.

When a singer-songwriter named Becky Han who grew up in the Arctic Bay contacted a local school to see if they needed school supplies, the principal hoped to address a different necessity.

According to CBS, Principal Gregg Durrant explained, “It’s pretty cold, and some kids don’t have the proper gear. We have kids among us who really didn’t have enough. Sometimes they would come in and we as staff would think, you know, that this kid really needs a new pair of boots or they need a proper parka.”

Han posted a tweet on behalf of her hometown school, requesting donations.

Though Han only expected a small response from her tweet, she soon got a message that she assumed was fake (because who wouldn’t?). The message read, “I saw the tweets and how can I help?”

After going to the account’s profile, she made a startling discovery. That was no fake profile – the simple message and offer of help came from Canadian-born sweetheart Ryan Reynolds.

“And I was just touched,” Han said. “I was grateful that, you know, people are listening and he wanted to help out … and that he has concern over Inuit in Nunavut.”

She gave Reynolds Principal Durrant’s contact information to determine what supplies were most desperately needed.

“Oh, yes, that was quite interesting,” Durrant recalled casually. “You know, I got an email saying, ‘This is Ryan Reynolds and what your needs are in terms of winter gear.’ And yeah, we started emailing back and forth and yeah, that was that.”

Reynolds then contacted some friends at Canada Goose to get them on board. According to Gavin Thompson, the vice-president of corporate citizenship at Canada Goose, Reynolds has been a friend of the company for over 10 years. In under a week, a shipment of 300 brand new Canada Goose parkas, boots, gloves, socks, and hats was on its way to the
Inuujaq school in Arctic Bay.

When the shipment arrived, the students were over the moon. Durrant recalled, “When the students were leaving the gym because they put on their parkas trying to make sure that whatever gear they were getting were suitable for them in terms of size, they were like, ‘Thank you, Gregg! Thank you, Gregg!’ I’m like, ‘Yes, it’s thank you, Ryan! Thank you, Ryan!’”

Wolverine Vs. Deadpool: This Time It’s for Charity

Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman love to roast each other.

They did so back in the dreadful Wolverine: Origins movie, in which Reynolds got his first shot at Deadpool, the character that would make him a megastar, and they’ve continued to do so ever since, primarily using social media as their battleground.

It’s obvious that they’re actually friends and would love to work together. They’re just having fun breaking each other’s balls, as guys tend to do. Now they’re reigniting their “feud” for a good cause, with a little help from Sam’s Club.

The two movie stars moonlight as entrepreneurs, with Reynolds heading up Aviation Gin, and Jackman brewing up some Laughing Man Coffee. Sam’s Club is helping the friends end their feud by allowing consumers to vote for their favorite – by buying the aforementioned brands.

Starting November 10th and running through December 10th, every dollar spent on Aviation Gin counts as a vote for Reynolds, and every time someone buys Jackman’s Laughing Man Coffee, it’s a vote for him. Of course, those purchases need to be made at Sam’s Club.

The proceeds will go to two charities, Reynolds’ SickKids Foundation and Jackman’s Laughing Man.

“You can side with me and not only affirm Ryan is the canned cranberry sauce of human beings, but also contribute to the Laughing Man Foundation, which helps farming communities around the world,” Jackman says in an ad for the campaign on Instagram.

“Or you could side with me, to send a message that like mistletoe, Hugh just makes things awkward.” Reynolds fights back. “Sam’s Club will help me support efforts to provide compassionate care to sick children through the SickKids Foundation.”

Ryan Reynolds Has Concerns About Hugh Jackman’s Nude- Uh, New Commercial

There’s a lot to keep track of when you’re a celebrity. Remembering lines if you’re an actor, being on your game in public since the world is always watching – it’s overwhelming (or so I imagine). In Hugh Jackman’s new commercial, the premise is that our favorite former Wolverine got a little mixed up when it came to his endorsement deal. Totally fair – between working on upcoming movies, promoting his Laughing Man Coffee, and the daily demands of life as the world record holder for longest career as a live-action Marvel superhero, dude’s got a lot going on.

In an ad for Australian boot maker R.M. Williams, Jackman meets with a company executive to discuss their nude arrangem- um, new arrangement. Not wanting to insult the man who maintains insane levels of physical strength in order to perform his own stunts, the executive approaches the subject delicately. He paints on a pained smile, telling Jackman how happy he is that the actor is enjoying his R.M. Williams boots.

Jackman echoes the visibly uncomfortable exec’s sentiment, expressing just how much he loves his boots. A moment later, we realize the source of the executive’s distress – Jackman is completely naked, aside from his boots.

“While we appreciate how literally you’ve taken the clause that stipulates you can only wear R.M. Williams-”

“My word is my bond,” Jackman interrupts.

Generally speaking, endorsement deals require the person under contract to wear one specific brand of that product, but they’re free to wear what they want when it comes to the rest of their outfit. The uneasy exec does his best to explain the confusion to Jackman, but he’s far too busy displaying his – uh, boots, to notice.

Before the wildly unproductive meeting comes to a close, Jackman takes a moment to fully enjoy the executive’s new chair. “Honestly, you should sit in this,” Jackman says, enthusiastically rubbing his nether region against the now defiled chair.

“You can have that,” replies the executive. “I’m just gonna burn it.”

Like The Rock to a broken gate, Ryan Reynolds showed up on Twitter with some concerns for the chair that was far too young to have seen … all of that.

“Is that the chair from my office?” Reynolds commented.

The R.M. Williams commercial was in fact produced by Ryan Reynolds’s studio Maximum Effort, and with the constant friendly ball-busting between Reynolds and Jackman, who knows. Maybe it really was the chair from Reynolds’s office. No worries though – if it was, I’m sure Jackman returned it as soon as he was done.

Let’s just hope the two get dressed for a Face/Off reboot.

Ryan Reynolds Releases Aviation Gin Home School Edition, for E-Learning Support

So uh, how’s virtual learning going? You know what, don’t answer that. Father of three and big-hearted goofball Ryan Reynolds feels your pain, and he’s here to help. Aside from his passions for acting and philanthropizing (just go with it), Reynolds takes his gin very seriously.

After acquiring a stake in Aviation Gin in 2018, Reynolds has become the face and the smartass behind the popular gin company. Reynolds is one of the rare celebrities who uses both his money and influence for good, and unsurprisingly, he’s doing the same with Aviation Gin. He donated 30% of his gin proceeds for over a month to bartenders suffering income loss due to COVID, and now, he’s got a little something for the parents.

Reynolds announced that Aviation Gin would be releasing a new product to give parents a little – uh – boost, while helping guide their kids through virtual learning.

“Aviation Home School edition. Official sponsor of Parent-Gin conferences,” Reynolds’s posted on Twitter, along with the special-edition gin’s commercial.

The commercial opens with Reynolds seated at a desk, staring at the camera with the powerful intensity of a dad who was just asked “what’s for dinner?” right after he threw a steak on the grill.

“It’s back to school time, which this year, has a whole new meaning,” Reynolds begins. “That’s why today, I’m introducing Aviation American Gin-” he says, slamming a huge freaking bottle down on his mahogany desk, “-Home School edition. It’s just like the classic delicious Aviation Gin that you love, but with more ounces.” Nearly 60 ounces, which should last, you know – a little while.

“It can help with a variety of subjects,” Reynolds continues, “Fourth-grade geography, whatever the f*** new math is. And revisiting your own long-forgotten middle school traumas.”

The commercial concludes with the hauntingly-familiar sound of a school bell, as Reynolds voices what we’re all thinking – “Middle school is the f****** worst.”

Sitting down with your kids to help them through virtual learning can leave you feeling like Billy Madison but without the cool hat. School was tough enough the first time through, but at least this time we can legally drink. Just, you know, save it for after class.

Ryan Reynolds’ Response to The Rock Ripping Down a Gate is Remarkable

Ryan Reynolds responds to The Rock tearing down his gate
(Instagram/therock)

Long before taking on the role of Black Adam, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has been known for his incredible physical strength. Wrestling with the WWF for nearly a decade and appearing in over 50 movies, The Rock has become our favorite gentle giant. Though the dude looks like the human equivalent of a tank, he has an enormous heart and only uses his superhuman strength for good.

On Saturday, The Rock took to Instagram to share the saga of a metal gate that had the misfortune of getting on his bad side. Evidently, the Black Adam star was about to leave for work when he realized the large metal gate in front of his house wouldn’t open. For most of us, a service person would be our only route to freedom. But most of us don’t have biceps the size of a small child, or the spare cash to buy a new gate every time it malfunctions. Well, the rock has both – so he took matters into his own Hulk-like hands.

He said in his Instagram post, “Not my finest hour, but a man’s gotta go to work.” He explained, “We experienced a power outage due to severe storms, causing my front gate not to open. I tried to override the hydraulic system to open the gates, which usually works when power goes out – but this time it wouldn’t.”

Not my finest hour 🤦🏽‍♂️, but a man’s gotta go to work. We experienced a power outage due to severe storms, causing my front gate not to open. I tried to override the hydraulic system to open the gates, which usually works when power goes out – but this time it wouldn’t. Made some calls to see how fast I can get the gate tech on site, but I didn’t have 45min to wait. By this time, I know I have hundreds of production crew members waiting for me to come to work so we can start our day. So I did what I had to do. I pushed, pulled and ripped the gate completely off myself. Tore it out of the brick wall, severed the steel hydraulics and threw it on the grass. My security team was able to meet the gate technician and welders about an hour later — and they were apparently, “in disbelief and equally scared” 🤣 Not my finest hour, but I had to go to work. And I think I’m 💯 ready to be #blackadam 😄💪🏾 #ripgates

With a set full of production crew members waiting on him, he didn’t have time for a service person to come fix the gate. “So I did what I had to do,” he said. “I pushed, pulled and ripped the gate completely off myself. Tore it out of the brick wall, severed the steel hydraulics and threw it on the grass.”

The post continued, “My security team was able to meet the gate technician and welders about an hour later — and they were apparently, ‘in disbelief and equally scared.’”

Hopefully, they left the torn-down gate in the grass as a warning to all future gates that may decide to stop working at inopportune times. The Rock Concluded, “Not my finest hour, but I had to go to work. And I think I’m 💯 ready to be #blackadam.”

It wasn’t long before our favorite smartass, and nice guy, Ryan Reynolds, showed up in the comments to provide some helpful info. “The gate opened the OTHER way,” Reynolds explained, lovingly trolling a man who could break him in half with one metal-crushing hand.

The Rock later posted a video of the damage, showing the busted hinge and the absolutely destroyed metal gate lying lamely on the ground.

Well here’s the destruction 🤦🏽‍♂️ I left behind after pulling my gates off myself and going to work. This footage was taken from my security after I had already left and he arrived on the scene. The second video is of our technicians and welders carrying one of the gates and placing it gently in the grass. As you guys know from my last post, there was a power outage at my house, causing my gates to not open. Sure as hell wasn’t my best hour, but there were a lot of people waiting for me at work so I did what I had to do, hopped in my pick up and went to work. Maybe next time I’ll just hop the gates and call an Uber. Actually, no I won’t. There’s no fun in that 😈 Jokes aside, THANK YOU to the techs and welders who mobilized very quickly in the morning to come over and take care of the destruction. Thank you, gentlemen. Just one of those days where I wasn’t in the mood. We’ve all been there. 🥃 #ripgates

“Maybe next time I’ll just hop the gates and call an Uber,” The Rock considered. “Actually, no I won’t. There’s no fun in that.”

“Jokes aside,” he continued, “THANK YOU to the techs and welders who mobilized very quickly in the morning to come over and take care of the destruction. Thank you, gentlemen. Just one of those days where I wasn’t in the mood. We’ve all been there.”

Sure, we’ve all been there. I mean, not EXACTLY there, but we get it. We’re all a little on edge these days, sometimes all it takes is one more little thing going wrong for us to become completely unhinged.

Ryan Reynolds Gently Roasts Hugh Jackman While Narrating Coffee Commercial

Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman have a friendship that keeps on giving. Like brothers on a perpetual mission to one-up each other, Reynolds and Jackman enjoy giving each other a good old fashioned ribbing. During a recent reunion of (what was supposed to be) the first X-Men movie’s cast, Ryan Reynolds rallied some friends from around the X-Men universe and crashed the party, as friends do. And how can we forget the time that Deadpool wore a crumpled Hugh Jackman mask that looked like an intern had clipped it from a magazine a minute before they started filming?

The good-spirited trolling between these two talented friends is ever-present on social media and beyond, but nothing is more emblematic of their goofy yet supportive friendship than Jackman’s recent coffee commercial. Early Tuesday morning, Jackman took to social media to release a commercial for his coffee brand, “Laughing Man Coffee”. The commercial features an extremely grumpy Jackman preparing for his day, while our reliable-ish narrator, Ryan Reynolds, provides us with a slightly different story.

“This is Hugh Jackman,” Reynolds begins as Jackman’s alarm clock begins to blare. Scowling, Jackman takes the alarm, glances at it, and throws it across the room. “Noted humanitarian,” Reynolds continues, as Jackman becomes visibly frustrated by the sound of kids playing outside. “Hey kids, SHUT UP,” he yells ineffectively out the closed window.

Though there’s nothing inherently wrong with Reynolds’s narration, it has the sarcastic feel of a kid throwing an absolute meltdown, and a fellow parent raising an eyebrow and commenting, “they seem happy.” The commercial continues with the same pattern – Reynolds “hyping” his friend, and Jackman essentially doing the exact opposite of whatever Reynolds gives him credit for.

That is, until Jackman finally gets his steaming cup of Laughing Man Coffee.

Reynolds explains that Laughing Man Coffee is “The coffee company that donates 100% of Hugh’s profits to support fair trade farmers.” He continues, “and brews the exceptional flavor that is 100% responsible for the Hugh Jackman we know and love.”

Reynolds posted a slightly more candid explanation on his YouTube page, stating that “Hugh Jackman founded Laughing Man coffee so he could give back 100% of his profits to the fair trade farmers who grow it—and also to make himself way less of an asshole. That coffee is actual magic.”

The commercial ends with a smiling Hugh Jackman, now cuddling the dog that he’d previously yelled at. I know a few people who could definitely use a cup of whatever magic is mixed into that little pod. Welcome back, Hugh. You’re not you when you’re decaffeinated.

Ryan Reynolds Has the Best Response To a Deadpool Cosplayer

Ryan Reynolds Responds to Deadpool Cosplayer
(Instagram/jadiant)

Superheroes are far more than just fictional characters in a nonexistent universe. Superheroes remind us that no matter how much garbage there is in the world, there will always be good guys fighting for us. They remind us that you don’t have to look a certain way to be a hero because being a hero is entirely about your actions. The Black Panther made waves as the first mainstream Black superhero, giving Black youth a Marvel hero they could identify with.

We’ve all come to love Ryan Reynolds’ smartass yet kind-hearted ways. And his portrayal of Deadpool gave us another relatable hero, one who showed us that scars really are only skin deep. Though often self-deprecating, Deadpool was undoubtedly a badass. His love interest, Vanessa Carlysle, was unbothered by his scarred appearance, which helped Deadpool become more accepting of himself. Recently, med student, cosplayer extraordinaire, and self-proclaimed “Burn-Thriver” John Quinn of Millington, Tennessee gave us the most personal, concrete example of just how influential these relatable superheroes can be.

17 years ago, John Quinn was seriously burned across his face and body. He shared in an inspiring Instagram post, “I’ve been burned longer than I have been alive not burned. This part of who I am that I’ve learned to love and embrace. I don’t need to escape my reality because I absolutely love it. It’s taken years to get this way, and pity I know is inevitable to receive at times, but just know I am not a victim.”

Sometimes I catch myself wondering what I would have looked like if I were not burned so severely. However, that doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy what I look like now. It’s just a curious thought that can have no real answer. I’m proud of who I am, I don’t need a answer. People always say “I’m so sorry that happened to you”, yeah it sucked no doubt, definitely one of the most debilitating painful moments of my life, but that isn’t the point. The point is, I was burned about 17 years ago. I’ve been burned longer than I have been alive not burned. This part of who I am that I’ve learned to love and embrace. I don’t need to escape my reality because I absolutely love it. It’s taken years to get this way, and pity I know is inevitable to receive at times, but just know I am not a victim. I love what I look like. It’s opened so many doors for me in my life and career. I’m sure I would have not helped as many people as I have now if I were not burned. Being burned was not the end for me, it was just a new beginning. So do I miss what I looked like? No. But there were times I did. It’s okay to grieve over your losses, but that is not me anymore. I don’t want anyone to be sorry for me, because I am thriving. I know who I am and my purpose in this world. I love being burned, trauma has given me such a great sense of humor, and I can laugh at just about anything. It is not a coping mechanism, it is just how I view the world and myself. I’m not a sensitive person. I would rather be hated on then pitied. It’s quite liberating to start taking ownership of who you are. You give words meaning, not others. Don’t forget to be a friend to yourself and practice self compassion. I love what I look like, I really do. I know some people might be baffled about it, but it’s true. They probably won’t understand because they aren’t me. But I have understanding on a lot of this. It does not matter in the long run, because I don’t run away from my problems anymore. I’m not that same insecure boy. I’m a man with fire scars. And if you get heart burn after reading this post, it just means I touched your heart🔥💙 I’m not your average guy, I’m not ashamed of who I am and neither should you🔥

A post shared by Johnny 🔥 (@jadiant) on

Quinn’s strength and positivity is nothing short of extraordinary, and he credits Deadpool for helping him own his scars. To honor his favorite superhero, Quinn pulled off an incredible Deadpool cosplay, even learning to do the splits for his epic photoshoot. Aside from transforming into his favorite superhero, Quinn had another dream – he hoped to get the picture to Reynolds himself, letting him know just how much Deadpool’s character changed his life for the better. A few months after his initial post, Quinn got his wish.

It would make my dream come true if @vancityreynolds got to see this post! I learned to do the splits just for this photo. Deadpool has honestly made me way more confident. Anyone who has read or watched anything about Deadpool, knows his face and body are pretty messed up. So it’s only natural that I cosplay him. I wanted to be authentic as possible, and that was to not wear a mask. It’s so easy to cover up who I am, and to give In to despair. Deadpool just makes me not care about that stuff and show my true self. This is me, and I’m not Ashamed about it. Deadpool is icy clean, and he’s helped my self esteem so much. I’m owning who I am, and cosplaying Deadpool makes it that much easier.

A post shared by Johnny 🔥 (@jadiant) on

Sliding into the comments of Quinn’s incredible cosplay photo, Reynolds commented, “Holy sh*t, Jadiant, this made my YEAR. Can’t even describe what this post means to me. Also, I can do the splits… but only once a year. And it has to be in the lobby of a hospital.”

Of course, Quinn was beyond thrilled that he got Reynolds’s attention. He replied, “BROOO I CAN’T BELIEVE YOU SEEN IT! You made this so worth it. I HOPE YOU CONTINUE TO INSPIRE SO MANY OTHERS.”

The costume was amazing, the response was above and beyond – but possibly the best part of all of this is that Quinn is a hero in his own right. Inspired by Deadpool, Quinn embraces himself fully. Now, he works with the Courageous Faces Foundation, inspiring others just as Deadpool inspired him. So yes, Reynolds will continue to inspire so many others – but so will Quinn.

Rick Moranis Comes Out of Retirement Just To Hang Out With Ryan Reynolds

Rick Moranis Ryan Reynolds

Rick Moranis is in the pantheon for both all-time great comedic actors and for great dads. And he briefly came out of retirement for a 30-second commercial and that’s the type of energy we need to carry us through 2020. It’s the one time we’re actually excited to watch a commercial.

Moranis cemented his comedy legend status through monster hits like “Ghostbusters” and “Spaceballs”, and also through just good time comedies like “Strange Brew.” He’s even confirmed to make his long-anticipated return to the big screen with a Honey I Shrunk reboot.

Moranis took a step back from his film career in the 1990s though, after his wife’s tragic passing from cancer. Moranis decided to leave the movie game behind so he could fully focus on being a single dad and raising his kids, and he has no regrets. Great actor, great dad.

Today, we finally have new Rick Moranis content. And it’s all thanks to fellow Canadian actor Ryan Reynolds. It’s a commercial for Reynolds’ Mint Mobile, but that’s not the point here. It’s just to bring Rick back, and let Reynolds bask in his company for 30 seconds. Even if it’s for a commercial, everyone was PSYCHED to see Moranis briefly out of retirement.

It’s been more than two decades since Rick Moranis has been on-screen, so that’s why people are going full fanboy over what is essentially a commercial. Ryan Reynolds is no fool, though. He knows the content game and how to bring a smile to the collective face of the internet, like with the Reynolds Cut version of Green Lantern.

Reynolds is OK in our book. It’s awesome to see Moranis back doing anything, so the two of them combined is a welcome respite from the type of news we’re used to in 2020.

Hugh Jackman Is Down for a Face/Off Remake With Ryan Reynolds

Face/Off Jackman and Reynolds

While rumor swirl about Keanu Reeves and Ryan Reynolds in the same MCU flick, another potentially awesome team-up duo involving Reynolds is making the rounds.

It’s especially fun when two big stars are good friends and have a good time busting each other’s balls on the regular. I’m talking about Hugh Jackman and Ryan Reynolds, who met on the set of the dreadful Wolverine: Origins movie and have had a good time ribbing each other in public and on social media for years.

The two X-Men, or X-Men adjacent, in Deadpool’s case, actors like to tease the idea of another movie team-up, and Jackman recently gave an interview in which he revealed he’d be down for a fun remake that isn’t a superhero flick but is just as ridiculous.

Face/Off.

Yup, that insane John Woo flick that featured John Travolta and Nicolas Cage’s characters literally swapping faces. Imagine if that were played as a comedy, with real-life buds Jackman and Reynolds?

Wolverine is into it, especially if he can avoid any and all contact with his costar.

“Is it possible to shoot it where we’re never actually together? I’m open to that,” Jackman said on Sirius XM. The friends make a big show of disliking each other and having a classic celebrity feud, but it’s always obvious they’re just having fun.

During the interview, Jackman was asked about his friendship with Reynolds, and if he was going to get Deadpool anything for his upcoming birthday.

“The first thing that came to mind was a game we used to play as kids, did you ever play that game, we used to call it Ring and Run? Where you go knock on someone’s door and run away. So of course my older brother took it to the next level and when you came to open the door there was a package that was on fire. The package was filled with various amounts of dog poo from the neighborhood. So you would stamp it out. That’s the first thing that came to mind.”

These two never give up the bit! Check out the full interview:

RUMORED: Keanu Reeves and Ryan Reynolds May Team up for a Marvel Movie

Keanu and Ryan MCU Team up?
(Getty/Karwai Tang/Andreas Rentz)

Keanu Reeves has done just about everything.

He’s starred in action movies and comedies, trilogies and reboots, comic book movies, and cartoons. He’s currently filming two sequels back-to-back. About the only things he hasn’t done are appear in a Star Wars movie and headline an MCU outing.

But that last one may be changing. And he may be bringing another all-around good-guy with him.

Kevin Feige has been angling to get Keanu into a Marvel movie for years, and if the rumors are true, he may be picking up the flaming skull where Nicolas Cage left it.

Rumor has it that the MCU wants Keanu for their Johnny Blaze, aka Ghost Rider, and that Ryan Reynolds may bring Deadpool along for the ride. (I hope he sits in the little sidecar!)

Nothing is final, but We Got This Covered has the scoop, and they’ve landed some good ones in the past. Keanu has no shortage of projects, from the next Bill and Ted’s coming out in a few weeks, to the currently-filming Matrix 4, and the eventual John Wick sequels.

He hasn’t played a superhero before unless you count Neo or Constantine, and adding him to their roster would be a big win for Marvel. As would looping Reynolds’ Deadpool into the MCU’s continuum, which definitely appears to be broadening as they prep to launch the first post-Thanos slate of films.

Or maybe Ghost Rider and Deadpool stand alone, together, in a series of R-rated buddy comedies. Honestly, I might prefer that!
