Ryan Reynolds revealed what his advice had his friend Hugh Jackman for his upcoming musical. The Big Topic sat with the Marvel actor up front Lively to discuss the shift to song and dance. It turns out that the Wolverine star is all natural, so communicating what his friend was supposed to do was lost in translation. In the end, Reynolds had to go it alone. But, the results are out quite wonderful.
“It’s so natural to Hugh that, in a strange way, his help wasn’t helping,” Reynolds explained. “He was like, ‘Just make sure you hear these beats and these beats.’ And I said, ‘I’m not listening to the beats, man. Help me with something real here!””
Reynolds spoke to Forbes about his massive Deadpool 3 announcement and the tidal wave of hype it created. “I couldn’t be more excited,” he explained during the interview. “I mean, especially to do it this way. After all, I work with some of my closest friends in the world and that doesn’t happen every day working in this business.”
“I’m excited and I’ve been sitting on these two teasers for a couple of weeks now,” Reynolds continued. “It’s one of those moments when you hit send or a tweet or a post — your hand shakes when you’re messing with the couple like that… I feel the same way the fans do, though. I feel excited that this character is coming back for another ride, especially in this context. I think it’s something that people have wanted for a long time, to bring that couple to the big screen, and that’s what we’re aiming to do.”
What is Spirited About?
Here’s how Apple describes the film: “Every Christmas Eve, the Ghost of Christmas Present (Will Ferrell) chooses a dark soul to be reformed by a visit from three spirits. But this season, he chose the wrong Scrooge. Clint Briggs (Ryan Reynolds ) turns the tables on his otherworldly host until Paron reexamines his past, present and future.For the first time, Christmas carols told from the perspective of the ghosts in this hilarious musical twist on the classic Dickens story.’
Joining Reynolds and his friend Ferrell is Octavia Spencer (The help), Sunita Mani (SHINE), Patrick Page (How the Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr. Seuss! the musical), and Amy Carrero (Elena of Avalor).
