Being James Bond is serious business. There’s no room for jokes. This is a lesson Deadpoolstar Ryan Reynolds had to learn the hard way when, in jokingly, he submitted his application for the role.
Reynolds stated that they are looking for a Bond in a recent interview with The Times. “Could you take a Canadian sipping tonic and gin instead of a martini?” If so, I’m open to it.”
Naturally, the internet quickly took Reynolds’ lighthearted remarks at face value and collapsed. Some people were offended by the idea of a Canadian snarky actor, best known for his role in Deadpool’s fourth wall-breaking death, playing James Bond. Others, however, were able to see that James Bond is an invented character and that it doesn’t really matter who plays his part.
Reynolds was forced to take to Twitter after the storm of outraged Bond purists and media coverage. He pointed out that he was simply playing around.
In response to The Times’ report, the actor tweeted “I promise you that I wasn’t even remotely serious.”
Personally, Ryan Reynolds would be a fascinating choice to take over Bond’s franchise. He could literally be Ryan Reynolds in all Bond movies he stars in for the next few decades.
