‘Deadpool’ Co-Star Says Ryan Reynolds is ‘Not Bigger Than Life… Like The Rock’

‘Deadpool’ Co-Star Says Ryan Reynolds is ‘Not Bigger Than Life… Like The Rock’
Dwayne Johnson and Ryan Reynolds are both known for passionately promoting their films on social media, but Leslie Uggams, who stars alongside Reynolds in “Deadpool,” says that’s where the comparisons end.

In a New York Times feature published this past week, Uggams, who plays Deadpool’s elderly roommate Blind Al, says Reynolds is a very reserved man in real life; quite unlike the charismatic Johnson and especially unlike the loudmouth mutant anti-hero he is most famous for playing.

“Offstage, he’s not bigger than life,” Uggams said. “He’s not like the Rock. When the Rock walks in the room, I’m sure it’s like, ‘Oh, my God, the Rock.’ But that’s not Ryan. He’s not Mr. Hollywood.”

Reynolds agreed with this description of himself, telling the Times that the stark difference between his actual personality and the characters he plays has surprised many of his fans long before he started doing superhero movies. He notes that back in 2002, he was met by excited party animals who saw him in the National Lampoon college comedy “Van Wilder,” only to be surprised when he turned out to be “this incredibly boring version of a guy who looked like their hero.”

“When the curtain opens, I turn on this knucklehead, and he kind of takes over and goes away again once I walk off set,” he said. “That’s that great self-defense mechanism.”

That “self-defense mechanism” has made Reynolds into one of the most popular actors on social media, as he has regularly sent out tweets as Deadpool ever since the antihero’s big screen debut became a smash hit two years ago. Most recently, Reynolds fired out a tweet congratulating “Avengers: Infinity War” for setting the new box office opening weekend record by showing a picture of a letter denying Deadpool’s application to join the Avengers.

Deadpool 2,” which hits theaters May 18, is expected to match the opening weekend set by the first “Deadpool,” which made a then-February record $132 million in 2016. The film went on to become one of the highest-grossing R-rated films ever released with $783 million worldwide.

The Five Worst Ryan Reynolds Movie Roles of His Career

Sometimes good actors take bad roles or are given bad roles and must see them through thanks to contracts and the fact that if they quit they become a little less desirable. Ryan Reynolds is the kind of actor that’s really already established himself but seems to take on roles that still manage to tarnish his name every now and again. It’s almost as if he’s trying to find a way to keep himself humble and not get too famous too quickly. Of course he’s already hit one out of the park with Van Wilder and with Deadpool, so it’s

Sophia Bush Dishes on First Onscreen Kiss Ever With Ryan Reynolds (Exclusive)

Sophia Bush Dishes on First Onscreen Kiss Ever With Ryan Reynolds (Exclusive)
Onscreen kisses can obviously be awkward, but it turns out Sophia Bush's first time was a great experience, thanks to her co-star -- none other than Ryan Reynolds.

Et spoke to Bush on Tuesday about partnering up with PayPal on #GivingTuesday, a movement fueled by social media to kick off the charitable season. Bush also reminisced about this year being the 15-year anniversary of Van Wilder, the 2002 film in which she appeared alongside Reynolds and Tara Reid.

"That was my first job," the 35-year-old actress tells Et. "Truly I just remember Ryan Reynolds being the most professional and kind and courteous man. You want to talk about good men in Hollywood -- aces all around. Such a good human being."

"To walk in as an actor and have your first onscreen kiss with somebody, and not know what's going on ... I said something about it being my first day and he was like, 'Here's a few things

10 Things You Didn’t Know about “Old School”

There have been a lot of college movies to come around but only a select few have been worth remembering. Animal School was one, Van Wilder was another, Pcu could be argued to be great enough to throw in the mix, and Old School definitely makes the cut. When Mitch first learns that his girlfriend is cheating on him the last thing he wants to do is throw a party and the absolute last thing he wants to do is start a fraternity. But thanks to the dean of the local college throwing a wrench into his life by declaring

Ryan Reynolds Savagely Trolls Wife Over Hideous Movie Makeover

Ryan Reynolds Savagely Trolls Wife Over Hideous Movie Makeover
Ryan Reynolds doesn't just play a wise ass in the Deadpool movies. He's also a certified jokester in real life. And we need look no further than his social media accounts for proof of this. His wife, former Gossip Girl star and acclaimed actress Blake Lively was the latest victim of his joking, when he brutally mocked her latest movie makeover. Or perhaps we should call it a makeunder.

Most actors praise their significant others on social media with posts about how beautiful their wives are, or how amazing their husbands tend to be. Not good old Ryan Reynolds, though. That would be too boring for the comedic talent behind such classics as Van Wilder and The Proposal. Instead of giving his wife props for taking on a more challenging role, he'd rather make fun of her.

Having just wrapped on Deadpool 2, Reynolds has a little bit of downtime.

Asian American TV Actors Expose the Difficulty of Landing Parts – With or Without an Accent

Asian American TV Actors Expose the Difficulty of Landing Parts – With or Without an Accent
Daniel Dae Kim made headlines this year for leaving “Hawaii Five-0” over issues of pay inequality, and later, for replacing actor Ed Skrein as a Japanese-American character in the big-screen remake of “Hellboy.” Both instances involved how Asian Americans are still underrepresented in the entertainment industry, and it’s an issue that requires more discussion in order to foster understanding of how the so-called “model minority” continues to be marginalized.

It wasn’t that long ago that very few actors of Asian descent were even considered Hollywood stars. In an interview with IndieWire, Kim reflected on the few Asian actors who were his role models growing up.

“The only two that I can think of were Bruce Lee and George Takei. They were the only two,” he said. “I was a big ‘Star Trek’ fan when I was a kid, and I would watch Mister Sulu all the time. Bruce Lee,

Clifford the Big Red Dog movie finds a director

Back in July of last year it was revealed that Paramount Pictures was developing a live-action/CG hybrid adaptation of Norman Bridwell’s Clifford the Big Red Dog book series, and now Variety is reporting that the project has found a director.

Walt Becker, whose previous credits include Van Wilder, Wild Hogs, Old Dogs and Alvin and the Chipmunks, is set to helm the movie, while Ellen Rapoport has come on board to rewrite the script from Justin Malen.

Clifford the Big Red Dog launched in 1963 and revolves around the adventures of a young girl called Emily Elizabeth and her pet dog Clifford, who just happens to be 25 feet tall, and bright red. The books have spawned two animated series, while Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment spent several years in development on an animated feature before the rights ended up at Paramount.

That Time I Was Sitting Next to Ryan Reynolds at a Broadway Play in 2002 and Had No Clue

In 2002 Ryan Reynolds wasn’t even a twinkle in people’s eyes. He was a relatively unknown actor who was just finishing wrapping up what I still consider to be one of his best roles, Van Wilder. He was nowhere near the superstar he is today and at the time he was probably more known for being “the guy that Alanis Morissette dated” than anything else. I hadn’t seen Van Wilder yet, and I don’t think I did for at least 3 or more years or so, so what the hell did I know in 2002? I do know that in

Top 5: Heist Movies

  • Nerdly
With both The Hatton Garden Job in UK cinemas now, and We Still Steal the Old Way available on DVD from today, I thought i’d take a look at my favourite Top Five Heist/Crime Caper Movies… In order (for a change) they are:

5) In Security

In Security tells the story of best friends Kevin and Bruce, who are co-owners of a failing home security company in a town with no crime. As a last ditch effort to drum up some business, they start robbing the neighbors to instill fear and create a need for their services but bullets fly when they unwittingly rob the wrong guy – a suburban drug lord with a penchant for kitchen gadgets.

It’s fair to say I love a good goofball crime caper, but In Security however has much more than being just a “crime caper” going for it. For one it stars one of my favourite actors,

2017’s Jumanji adds Tim Matheson to its cast

According to Deadline, actor Tim Matheson is the latest addition to the cast of Sony’s Dwayne Johnson-led Jumanji reimagining/sequel. Matheson has signed on to play the role of Old Man Vreeke; no details were given on the character or how he relates to the film’s plot.

It appeared as if the Jumanji cast had already been rounded out after Annie and Boardwalk Empire actor Bobby Cannavale came on board in November, but clearly, that was not the case. Seeing as how filming on Jumanji began in September, one would assume that Matheson will be the last major cast addition since production should be finishing up soon.

Matheson has had a career that spans over five decades, first getting into the business as a teenager in the 60s and appearing on such shows as Leave It to Beaver, Jonny Quest and My Three Sons. The Emmy-nominated actor,

Bring It On: examining its straight-to-dvd sequels

Kirsten Howard Nov 15, 2016

There are now a staggering four sequels to 2000's feelgood cheerleading hit Bring It On, but are they any good?

This article contains spoilers for the assorted Bring It On movies.

See related The Missing series 2: the writers on episode 5’s revelation The Missing series 2 episode 5 review: Das Vergessen The Missing series 2 episode 4 review: Statice The Missing series 2 episode 3 review: A Prison Without Walls

2000’s Bring It On is a very odd duck.

It’s not that the film is particularly innovative about how it spins its narrative – there’s a pretty standard set of beats in place for a sports movie – but traditionally, sports movies don’t tend to have a predominantly female cast (and even something like A League Of Their Own was somewhat led by Tom Hanks). Not only that, it’s a movie with a predominately female cast that isn’t entirely focused on love or romance.
