Ryan Reynolds is a great actor! He has been in this movie industry for years! He's starred in plenty of movies. I'm sure if you were to take the time to sit down and watch all of his movies he has starred in, you would find AT LEAST two that you like. He's done serious movies, but the majority of the movies he seems to star in are comedies.
Ryan Reynolds' sense of humor seems to revolve around a semi serious/goofy kind of humor. He also likes to use sarcasm a lot as well. One of his more famous movies you might have seen him star in is, "national lampoon's Van Wilder" A movie about a college student that refuses to graduate college because he loves it so much.

Ryan Reynolds is now in filming of the new movie, "The Green Lantern"
Ryan will play the main character Hal Jordan AKA the green lantern.
From what I have seen from the trailers, the Green Lantern looks to be a good movie. I hope it will live up to the comic book that it started out as.
I'm really looking forward to seeing how a comedian by nature is going to play the role of an action hero.
