Let me start by saying that Ryan Reynolds seems to be an affable, charismatic actor, whom I enjoyed watching in films like 2005’s “Just Friends” or the more recent “Safe House.” Heck, he even was interesting in last year’s “Green Lantern.” The problem is that I am not entirely sure that Reynolds can headline a […]
