Ryan Rodney Reynolds (born October 23, 1976) is a Canadian actor with dual trademarks of adept comic timing and weirdly charming cockiness. His performance as the eponymous Van Wilder made him a big star, as well as typecast him. Later, he got to branch out in big films as Wade Wilson/Deadpool in X-Men Origins: Wolverine and Hal Jordan in the Green Lantern film. He stars as Wade Wilson/Deadpool again in the Deadpool movies. In his lesser known 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 an issue of People magazine.
