Ryan Reynolds Is Basically Ted Lasso IRL at Soccer Match With Emily Blunt's Sister


Why Ryan Reynolds Is Ultimate Dad Goals!

Ryan Reynolds channeled his inner Ted Lasso at the Wrexham F.C. match, alongside co-owner Rob McElhenney.

Ryan and Rob bought the Welsh soccer team earlier this year, and finally saw their players in action on Tuesday, Oct. 26. The Deadpool and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia actors watched Wrexham go up against Maidenhead United at the York Road stadium, a moment that Ryan described on Instagram as “staggering, heartbreaking, gorgeous, tommy-gun of soul-deadening, evil and beauty.”

He added, “I’m never sleeping again ever ever.”

The actors were joined by Felicity Blunt (who is Emily Blunt‘s sister and Stanley Tucci‘s wife), along with actor Humphrey Ker. Not to mention an entire camera crew, which is documenting Rob and Ryan’s efforts to help the team rise in the rankings.

This marked the first time the Hollywood big shots personally attended a match, as they’ve previously been unable to visit due to filming and other commitments. 

However, Ryan recently shared on Instagram that he finished filming Spirited with Will Ferrell and is ready to devote himself to other projects. As he put it, it’s the “perfect time for a little sabbatical from movie making.” 

It seems the pair is sticking around Wales for some time, with Wrexham team manager Phil Parkinson telling the BBC that the players “look forward to meeting them later in the week.”

Phil is hoping to make a better impression on Ryan and Rob after the team lost the match to Maidenhead, saying, “I’m really disappointed for them that we haven’t been able to come away with at least a draw.
