Academy Award-nominated actor Jake Gyllenhaal penned an essay honoring Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds for Variety.
Gyllenhaal, who is set to play Quentin Blake/Mysterio in the upcoming film, Spider-Man: Far From Home reflects on his first time meeting Reynolds and how the two actors became close friends over the years. You can read an excerpt of Gyllenhaal’s essay down below, in which he expresses that Reynolds built the Deadpool house brick-by-brick:
“Ryan built the house of Deadpool brick by brick, constructing a space that inspired him and let him stretch to every corner of the room. The remarkable success of “Deadpool” may have shocked the suits who took a chance on financing that ragtag superhero movie, but for the people who know and love Ryan, it was no surprise that the whole damn world rallied as soon as it had the chance to really see him: all of the edges and darkness, the crackerjack wit borne from a lifetime of sensitivity and sadness, and against all odds, the openness.”
