Summary of “This Story Has Already Stressed Ryan Reynolds Out”

While “Deadpool” had less on the line, its runaway success meant that “Deadpool 2” will open to towering anticipation – it has already broken ticket presale records for an R-rated movie – and the bigger question of whether Mr. Reynolds can catch lightning in a bottle twice.
In March, FX canceled a Deadpool animated adult comedy series by Donald Glover, who created “Atlanta.” The show was not connected to the film, but Mr. Reynolds said he still lamented the news and considered Mr. Glover a genius.

He grew up the youngest of four boys in Vancouver, British Columbia, in a home that was made volatile by his father, Jim Reynolds, a former police officer-turned-food wholesaler whom Mr. Reynolds calls “The stress dispensary in our house.” To head off screaming matches or any tumult, Mr. Reynolds tried to fix anything that might set his father off, be it by keeping the house immaculately clean or mowing the lawn.
His father also introduced him to comedy greats like Buster Keaton and Jack Benny, and could perfectly imitate Robert Goulet and Bill Cosby, or recite any episode of “Fawlty Towers.” Out of all this, Mr. Reynolds learned to be watchful, listen closely and to plumb tragedy for the absurd, traits he doesn’t think he’d have if he had come from an idyllic, placid home.
Mr. Reynolds is “Incredibly astute in the moment, and knows how to make a moment better,” said Morena Baccarin, who plays Deadpool’s girlfriend in both films.
The first time Mr. Reynolds remembers making a grown-up laugh was on the set of his first television show, a Canadian teen drama called “Hillside.” Vancouver-area high schools were asked to send their top drama students to audition, and though Mr. Reynolds was not picked, he went anyway and got the job.
