“Ryan Reynolds in Deadpool,” Jake said when asked who was snubbed (via EW). “We talk about brilliant performances all the time, you know, the actors who tear themselves apart for their roles, which I’m a believer in. But then I look at Ryan Reynolds in Deadpool and I say, ‘No one can do that but him.’ That is truly, purely him. As an artist he struggled for several years to figure that out and it’s all there on the screen. And it’s brilliant.”
Jake and Ryan are starring together in the upcoming movie Life, in theaters March 24.
