    Ryan is GREAT. And a wonderful guy. jsh39 you are a ding-dong.

  5. PETER says:

    Maybe I am mistaken, but does Ryan have five new films coming out? Six counting CRIMINALS? I ran into Ryan hiking in Griffith Park, and you would not be disappointed. And, VARIETY, thanks for improving on the photo that you initially ran this morning.

  8. PETER says:

    Ryan Reynolds is awesome, you idiot! And, Variety, did you have to select the worse photo ever taken of Ryan for this article. What’s your problem?
