Ryan Reynolds Talks About Becoming a Song & Dance Man For Movie ‘Spirited’ at film premiere

Ryan Reynolds hit the red carpet with Will Ferrell and Octavia Spencer for the NY film premiere of their new holiday film, Spirited.

The three actors were joined by co-stars Sunita Mani, Aimee Carrero, Marlow Barkley, Jen Tullock, and Patrick Page at the event held at Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Center on Monday (November 7) in New York City.

Patrick‘s wife, Paige Davis, Tracy Morgan, Brooke Shields, and Molly Ringwald, along with their families also attended.

Speaking at the premiere, Ryan opened up about learning to sing and dance for the Apple TV+ movie.

“As I’ve gotten older I’m more comfortable sucking at stuff. I really do believe that you can’t really be good at something unless you’re willing to suck at it,” he shared.

Ryan added some tips about the dancing, too: “Just start off slow, and then you move onto smooth, and then you can start to go fast. We just were patient.”

Ryan Reynolds is returning to a “traumatic” experience showing off his singing chops.

While Reynolds and co-star Will Ferrell underwent a seven-week-long “theater camp” experience to lead film “Spirited,” a modern musical twist on “A Christmas Carol,” Reynolds recalled a not-as-successful turn singing in a Korean reality competition series.

“I’ve been doing this job a long time, and you go on these international tours, and you start saying, ‘What’s the weirdest show we can go on?’” Reynolds said of a 2018 stint on “King of Masked Singer,” the Korean version of “The Masked Singer.” “This was before ‘The Masked Singer’ was in the U.S. So they said, ‘They have this show called “The Masked Singer,” which is huge in South Korea.’ I said, ‘We’re doing this show. We have to do that show.’”

Reynolds sang “Tomorrow” from the musical “Annie” while disguised as a unicorn on stage to promote “Deadpool 2.

“When I was there, I was like, ‘Why did I sign up to do this? This is horrible! This is truly horrible!” Reynolds recalled thinking at the time. “‘I don’t know this song, I don’t know how to do this.’ It was traumatic. What’s crazy is I was in actual hell.”

He added, “At the time, no westerner had been on that show before, so it was a big surprise when I lost the mask.”

Reynolds is now reprising both his singing career and the role of Marvel superhero Deadpool. Reynolds confirmed that fellow musical man and Tony Award winner Hugh Jackman is back as Wolverine in the upcoming third “Deadpool” film, with the events of the movie “totally separate” from Jackman’s then-final stand as the “X-Men” character in “Logan.”

“‘Logan’ takes place in 2029. Totally separate thing,” Reynolds said in a “Deadpool 3” promotional video. “Logan died in ‘Logan.’ Not touching that.”

“Deadpool 3” marks the wisecracking antihero’s first appearance in the MCU after Disney acquired 20th Century Fox. The film is being written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, who have both assured fans that Deadpool being under the Disney umbrella hasn’t affected the franchise’s famously adult humor.
