Ryan Reynolds, a businessman, and actor is already a co-owner of the Welsh football side Wrexham AFC. Last week, news broke that Reynolds would be expanding his horizons by investing in the NHL franchise Ottawa Senators.
When these stories first surfaced, they were simply rumours, but yesterday during an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the Deadpool actor confirmed the information and said he was interested in it.
TSN published the video of Reynolds’ arrival at the Canadian Tire Centre being announced over the public address system, and the enthusiastic reaction he received from the fans.
Actor Ryan Reynolds’ interest in a NHL team
Even someone in the audience holding a sign promoting Deadpool 3 was captured on video in the arena. Some of the team members even turned to face the man, who would soon become their new boss, as he stood in front of them.
Reynolds admitted on The Tonight Show that “I am attempting to (purchase the Senators). “I require a partner with extremely deep resources because it’s incredibly pricey. When a group of people joins forces to purchase an organization, it is known as a consortium.
This is just a fancy way of saying, “I need a sugar mommy or sugar daddy,” and if that doesn’t work out, “I’ll buy a US senator that anyone can afford.” Though I adore Ottawa. I grew up in Ottawa, Canada, but my hometown of Vancouver will always hold a special place in my heart. Vanier, a small village inside of Ottawa, is where I spent a lot of time there.”
Added, “I’ve spent half of my life in Wrexham. Then something like this might consume the other half. I believe the kids—my kids—have it now. From this point on, they can handle it themselves.”
Ryan Reynolds is well-known for owning a number of other businesses in addition to the Welsh football team Wrexham AFC which he co-owns with actor Rob McElhenney.
In addition to producing films, his production business, Maximum Effort, also served as the creative force behind the advertisements for his other works (and for other companies as well).
Reynolds is also the owner of Aviation American Gin and the mobile service provider Mint Mobile, which has benefited greatly from the fantastic advertising work he has produced.
