By now it is obvious that I am totally obsessed with People Magazine's Sexiest Man Alive. I have been a fan since the first one was announced and this year was no different. For 2010 People Magazine has chosen their Sexiest Man Alive and it is Ryan Reynolds.
Biography and Family:
Ryan Reynolds was bornOctober 23, 1976 in VancouverBritish ColumbiaCanada. Reynolds is the first Canadian to be picked the Sexiest Man Alive. Ryan Reynolds is married to actress Scarlett Johansson who just won GQ’s Babe of the Year. So it’s been a great year for this young Hollywood Couple.

Reynolds was on several television shows and well as made for television movies. Ryan is probably best known for his films Van Wilder, The Proposal with Sandra Bullock and Blade Trinity.

Green Lantern (2011)
The Green Lantern is set to be released in 2011. Ryan Reynolds will play Hal Jordan aka The Green Lantern who is a test pilot that is granted a mythical green ring that gives him special powers.
Again there are a few other people I would have chosen before Ryan Reynolds. I would have chosen someone who has been on the scene a bit longer than Reynolds, not that he is a bad choice but there are others. I am thinking that the hype around Green Lantern might have helped him to attain his status and being married to Scarlett Johansson does not hurt the situation either. Now I have to wait another year to see who is chosen for 2011; hopefully People Magazine will not let me down!
