Ryan Reynolds Jokes He and His Look-alike Kate Beckinsale Are Remaking an Olsen Twins Movie

Ryan Reynolds Jokes He and His Look-alike Kate Beckinsale Are Remaking an Olsen Twins Movie

Ryan Reynolds has a movie pitch — and it casts Kate Beckinsale as his inseparable twin.

After Beckinsale, 46, attested that the Deadpool actor is without a doubt her definite doppelgänger on a recent Tonight Show appearance, Reynolds was quick to respond with an idea for a project the supposed look-alikes could join forces on.

“We already have a script!” he joked on his Instagram Story Monday night, tagging Beckinsale and pasting the pair’s faces onto marketing materials from Double, Double Toil and Trouble, a Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen Halloween movie from 1993.

Beckinsale explained how she sees an uncanny resemblance with Reynolds, 43, while on Jimmy Fallon‘s show. The host remained unconvinced, saying he doesn’t “really see it.”

“I look exactly like Ryan Reynolds,” Beckinsale said. “Like in a shocking way. Like, when sometimes, I see a bus going by with a poster on it I think, ‘Damn, I look hot. Oh, wait, that’s not me. Also, I’ve never done that movie.’ ”

She continued, “I’ve wrestled with how, obviously, he’s not even like a sort of slightly girly-boy-bander type. He’s like a big Canadian man and I really see myself in him.”

Don’t buy your tickets to the Olsen twins reboot yet, however, as Beckinsale jested that she wouldn’t even be able to work with Reynolds. “I can’t be in the same room as him because one of us, I think, would explode or something would happen,” she said. Reynolds again poked fun at their similarities, commenting on one of Beckinsale’s Instagram posts, pointing out that the actors both appeared in big-screen vampire series, Blade for him and Underworld for her.

“I’ve never been in the same room with Kate. But I have raised her child while starring in the biggest vampire franchise on earth. So, you do the math,” he wrote.

Blake Lively Gives Birth, Welcomes Baby No. 3 With Ryan Reynolds

Blake Lively Gives Birth, Welcomes Baby No. 3 With Ryan Reynolds

And baby makes five! Blake Lively gave birth earlier this summer, welcoming her third child with her husband, Ryan Reynolds, Us Weekly exclusively confirms.

A source tells Us that the baby is “about 2 months old.” The Gossip Girl alum, 32, revealed in May that she and the Pokémon Detective Pikachu actor, 42, were expecting when she attended the movie’s premiere. The then-pregnant star rocked a bright yellow Retrofête dress on the red carpet that hugged her baby bump.

Later that month, the actress visited Reynolds on the set of his new movie Free Guy. She was all smiles in a gray T-shirt and jeans with her budding belly on display. Her daughters, James, 4, and Inez, 2, tagged along.

Although Reynolds often jokes about his little ones, saying he’d “rather drink a piping hot bowl of liquid rabies than get on a plane” with them and they love explosive devices, the couple have kept personal details private since starting their family.

That being said, Reynolds revealed something sweet about his brood in April. “When they decide to go away to college, I’m going to be that guy, ‘That’s so funny, I’m going to NYU, too!’” the Golden Globe nominee told Extra at the time. “I’m going to be so needy. I love being around them — it’s the best thing in the world.”

The Simple Favor star gushed about her girls in 2016, telling Marie Claire at the time, “All my eggs are in one basket, and that’s my family. That’s where my heart is. That’s where my everything is. That’s the thing that I feel most protective of and the thing that I feel is the most exposed when I feel exploited.”

Lively and Reynolds tied the knot in 2012. The Vancouver, Canada, native was previously married to Scarlett Johansson from 2008 to 2011.

Will Ferrell, Ryan Reynolds to Star in Musical Reimagining of ‘A Christmas Carol’ (Exclusive)

‘Daddy’s Home’ filmmakers Sean Anders and John Morris are writing and directing the project.

Christmas is coming a little early. Will Ferrell and Ryan Reynolds are developing a musical reimagining of Charles Dickens’ classic A Christmas Carol.

Sean Anders and John Morris of the Daddy’s Home films are writing and directing the project, and Ferrell and Reynolds will star, though details of who they will play are being kept in Scrooge’s bank vault.

The package is currently being shopped around town. Multiple studios are currently bidding, according to insiders.  

Charles Dickens’ 1843 novella — about the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge being visited by ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future — has been adapted numerous times, with a number of productions taking creative license with the property, such as Bill Murray’s 1988 comedy Scrooged and 1992’s The Muppet Christmas Carol.

Ferrell’s Gloria Sanchez, Reynolds’ Maximum Effort and Mosaic are producing the musical take on A Christmas Carol, along with Anders and Morris.

Reynolds recently appeared in Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw and has Netflix’s Michael Bay action film 6 Underground, Lionsgate’s The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard and Shawn Levy’s Free Guy upcoming. Ferrell’s recent credits include The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part, and he is set to star in Downhill, Fox Searchlight’s remake of the 2014 Swedish film Force Majeure

Reynolds is repped by WME; Ferrell is with UTA. 

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds Expecting Their Third Child

The Reynolds household is about to get even livelier.

Blake Lively revealed she was pregnant with her third child when she stepped out at the New York City premiere of Pokémon: Detective Pikachu on Thursday wearing a yellow dress which hugged her baby bump.

Lively, 31, also posed alongside husband and Pikachu star Ryan Reynolds.

A rep for the actress did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

The couple – who wed in 2012 – are already parents to 4-year-old daughter James and 2-year-old Inez.

Reynolds, 42, and Lively have built a cozy life outside of Hollywood for their adorable brood, making their home base in Bedford, New York.

There, focus is on family.

Reynolds recently told PEOPLE he and Lively won’t work at the same time in order to keep their family together.

“Blake and I don’t do movies at the same time. If she is doing a movie in Thailand and I am doing a movie in Vancouver we would just never see each other. We operate as a unit, and that works really well for us,” Reynolds said.

Reynolds Says He Went Through a ‘Real Unhinged Phase’ Due to His Anxiety

Ryan Reynolds may be the picture of confidence onscreen, but once the camera turns off the actor says he’s often a nervous wreck.

The actor, 41, opens up about his longtime battle with anxiety in a new interview with The New York Times.

“I have anxiety. I’ve always had anxiety,” he says. “Both in the lighthearted ‘I’m anxious about this’ kind of thing, and I’ve been to the depths of the darker end of the spectrum, which is not fun.”

During the early days of his career, Reynolds says he would often stay awake at night paralyzed by fear about his future.

Calling his early 20s a “real unhinged phase,” the actor admits he self-medicated to ease his anxiety.

“I was partying and just trying to make myself vanish in some way,” he says.

As his career began to take off, Reynolds toned down the partying but he says the anxiety never went away. To this day, he still gets wracked by dread and nausea before interviews and talk show appearances.

The actor is busy promoting the sequel to his highly successful 2016 film Deadpool. And with the upcoming film already breaking ticket presale records, the sequel is expected to be another hit — something that makes Reynolds a bit nervous.

“When there’s built-in expectation,” he says, “your brain always processes that as danger.”

So how does he cope with his anxiety? Reynolds, who is known for his quick wit, says he uses humor as a defense and coping mechanism.

“When the curtain opens, I turn on this knucklehead, and he kind of takes over and goes away again once I walk off set,” he explains. “That’s that great self-defense mechanism. I figure if you’re going to jump off a cliff, you might as well fly.”

Reynolds previously opened up about his battle with anxiety, revealing he had a mental breakdown after wrapping Deadpool.

“I went to go see a doctor because I felt like I was suffering from a neurological problem or something,” Reynolds told GQ. “And every doctor I saw said, ‘You have anxiety.’ ”

Deadpool 2 hits theaters May 18.

Hyundai’s Super Bowl Ad Teaser

Hyundai’s Super Bowl Ad Teaser

Deadpool “Touch Yourself Tonight” Promo Clip

Here is another promo clip from Ryan as “Deadpool” discussing the importance of early cancer detection for the UK testicular cancer awareness charity Ball Boys (not quite what you expected from the title, eh?)

Box Office: “Deadpool” Tracking for $55M-Plus Debut

The Hollywood Reporter estimated “Deadpool” to be on course for a $55 million-plus debut next month. The Fox and Marvel film came on tracking Thursday, three weeks before it opens over the long Valentine’s Day and Presidents Day weekend. Deadpool rolls out Feb. 12 opposite comedies Zoolander 2 and How to Be Single.

Those with access to prerelease services say the scores are strong for Deadpool among both males and females (as of now, it is the first choice among females). One service even has Deadpool crossing $60 million, and that’s before Fox makes its major marketing push.

The four-day Valentine’s Day and Presidents Day weekend has become a lucrative frame for moviegoing. Last year, Fifty Shades of Grey debuted to a dazzling $93 million while Kingsman: The Secret Service launched to $41.8 million over the four days.

Tracking shows Paramount’s Zoolander 2, directed by and starring Ben Stiller opposite Owen Wilson, looking to gross north of $20 million, but those estimates could easily see an uptick in the coming days. That would place the comedy ahead of New Line’s How to Be Single, a female-skewing rom-com starring Fifty Shades star Dakota Johnson, Rebel Wilson, Alison Brie and Leslie Mann.

Ryan wows fans as “Deadpool” in Taiwan

Ryan wows fans as “Deadpool” in Taiwan

Ryan is making the rounds with the world premiere of “Deadpool” and before the movie premiere in Taiwan, Ryan impressed fans with his knowledge of Chinese culture and a limited Chinese vocabulary. I don’t speak Chinese but thankfully Focus Taiwan did the translation for us and wrote a report on his friendly approach to fans in his social network. There is also a clip of his airport arrival at the end of this post if you’d like to take a look (of course you do!).

If Ryan Reynolds’ reception in Taiwan is anything to go by, bantering with fans works, especially if it is done in the local language. The Canadian movie star arrived in Taiwan Wednesday to promote his latest movie, “Deadpool.”

Taking several steps further than other Hollywood stars who try to greet local fans in Chinese when in Taiwan, Reynolds showed his knowledge of some the latest news events in the country, much to the pleasant surprise of the locals.

In a Facebook post, Reynolds announced jokingly — in Chinese — that he wants to apply to become the lead singer of ChthoniC, Taiwan’s best-known death metal band. On Jan. 16, the band’s lead vocalist, Freddy Lim (林昶佐), won a seat in the legislative elections to become a member of Taiwan’s next Legislative Yuan. In response to news about the Reynolds post, band leader and bass player Doris Yeh reportedly said: “We can only hire him.”

In another post in Chinese, Reynolds played on the Chinese character “菜, tsai,” which means poor-quality, saying: “Fans in Taiwan, I’m your cup of tea even though I speak poor Chinese (菜中文, tsai zhong wen).” The pun was not lost on the Taiwanese, who sometimes make fun of the name of President-elect Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文). The three characters of her name sound like “poor English,” although she speaks good English, having been educated in the United States and the United Kingdom.
