Ryan Rodney Reynolds (born 1976) is a Canadian actor who is most recognizable as the eponymous Film/VanWilder, the role which cemented his dual trademarks of adept comic timing and [[HandsomeLech weirdly charming cockiness]], made him a big star and almost fatally typecast him. More recently, he got to branch out a bit in big films as [[{{Deadpool}} Wade Wilson/Deadpool]] in ''Film/XMenOriginsWolverine'' and Hal Jordan in the ''Film/GreenLantern'' film. In his lesser [[Film/{{Buried}} known]] [[Film/ChaosTheory work]], he's also proven himself an exceedingly fine dramatic actor who can turn off the familiar sardonic persona. He was named one of the sexiest men alive in a recent issue of ''People'' magazine.

Sometimes he contributes to the Huffington Post. Oh, and be sure not to confuse him with [[Creator/NathanFillion another Canadian actor]] who plays a character named ''[[{{Series/Firefly}} Malcolm]]'' [[{{Film/Serenity}} Reynolds]] & also used to star in ''Series/TwoGuysAGirlAndAPizzaPlace''. Also, don't confuse him with the anime voice actress Ryan Reynolds.

He was previously married to Creator/ScarlettJohansson and is currently married to Creator/BlakeLively.

!!Filmography:
* ''Series/TwoGuysAGirlAndAPizzaPlace''
* ''Film/HaroldAndKumarGoToWhiteCastle''
* ''Film/VanWilder''
* ''[[Film/{{Blade}} Blade: Trinity]]''
* ''Film/TheAmityvilleHorror''
* ''Film/JustFriends''
* ''Film/DefinitelyMaybe''
* ''Film/XMenOriginsWolverine''
* ''Film/{{Adventureland}}''
* ''Film/TheProposal''
* ''Film/{{Buried}}''
* ''Film/SmokinAces''
* ''Film/GreenLantern''
* ''Film/SafeHouse''
* ''Film/{{Ted}}''
----
!!This actor provides examples of:
* CarpetOfVirility: Looks good. Very good.
* DeadpanSnarker: If he isn't saying something sarcastic and witty, its a pretty good sign that shit just got real.
* FakeAmerican: Almost every role he plays is this. Most people don't realize he's Canadian.
* HandsomeLech
* TheIrishDiaspora: Reynolds is an Irish name.
* MrFanservice: Frequently, not without reason. Even in [[Film/TheAmityvilleHorror scary roles]].
** ''Best Week Ever'' called the remake of ''Film/TheAmityvilleHorror'' starring him "the scariest movie you'll ever masturbate to".
* OneOfUs: Reynolds is a big fan of Deadpool. He also auditioned for every comic book character that existed until he finally landed a role (and luck behold, he's now the iconic Hal Jordan/Green Lantern).
* OldShame: Reynolds is pretty ashamed of his role in the short-lived Nickelodeon teen drama "Fifteen." He once admitted that he almost gave up acting entirely because of that show, only continuing his career after discovering there were better acting jobs available.
* PlayingAgainstType: Quite a few of his roles such as ''Buried'' and ''The Amityville Horror''. He can be pretty damn scary when he wants to be.
* PromotedFanboy: Subverted, he wasn't into comics until relatively recently, in which case he became a fanboy, roughly the same time he actually started playing comic book characters. In fact the only reason he became a fan of Deadpool is after being compared to him by Deadpool himself. Extra points for him...he's been cast to play Deadpool in the movie adaptation.
