Today's Fanboy Delusion

Today I'd rather be...

... swinging from the rafters with Ryan Reynolds.

With Deadpool out in a few weeks we're seeing a lot of Ryan around (yes including A LOT OF RYAN) and sure enough that's translated into "the cover of one of the men's magazines" -- in this case Men's Health, which has also produced one of the now typical (blessedly so) behind-the-scenes videos of the photo-shoot. So hit the jump for both the video and the excessive (some might use the word "gratuitous") caps that I took of it...

He was so much more sexy when he was less fit but not a douchenozzle.

Impure thoughts! SO MANY impure thoughts!

I need some "alone time" now.

Ben Affleck the worst? Ha I think Ryan Reynolds is more deadpan than most people including Affleck. He's nice to look at but such a horrible actor!

What is sexy about sweatpants?

Anonymous #2 - knowing that many men who wear them don't wear underwear so you get to see some bounce action when they're walking.

Ryan is nice to look at but his acting is serviceable at best (he was really shown up by Helen Mirren and even Katie Holmes for God's sake in Woman in Gold) and just comes off as equal parts bland and douchey in interviews which is quite a feat.

Looking at these gifs of him posing for the magazine, it reminded me of when Anna Nicole Smith died and they kept showing this one clip over and over again of her on a red carpet as photographers screamed her name and how awkward she looked doing her little poses. Nothing remotely natural about it. So forced.

I've always been HUUUUGELY skeptical of Ryan's acting talents but he was actually very very good this past year in Mississippi Grind, so I am kind of willing to see where he goes from here.

I also liked him in The Voices, too.
