Ryan Reynolds is Detective Pikachu. After Deadpool, he's now the world's most adorable Pokemon. Find an actor with more range. Well, you can't.
Ryan takes all his roles completely seriously and is the definition of a method actor like Christian Bale. As it turns out, he decided to literally become Pikachu for his upcoming movie, and I must say, he nailed it. You can't even tell the difference between them.
Sharing his journey of becoming the cute little yellow Pokemon, he gave everyone an insight into how much hard work he actually put in for the challenging role. He starts by saying, “I lived and I breathed and I became the character. I spent the entire year as Detective Pikachu.”
He went to tell everyone the extent of his method acting - “As many of you know, I vanish into my roles.” And, of course, it was followed by an anecdote about it. He recalled, “I was on my way to pick up my daughters from school when I heard I got the role. I didn't show up at the school because Detective Pikachu doesn't know who those little girls are. Who are they?”
At this point, a visibly annoyed Blake Lively had to interject. She said, “They're our daughters. He just left them.”
Then, he talked about how much he immersed himself in the world of Pokemon. He read about him -
Lived at his height -
He even tried to lose 182 pounds to match Pikachu's weight, until the doctors intervened. So much dedication!
Then, he goes on to say, “The point is my daughters, they may never see their dad again but you can be damned sure that they're going to be looking up at that screen this summer and they're going to see Detective Pikachu,” he says triumphantly. To which, Blake obviously laughs and say, “We're not going.”
I really don't have anything to say about Ryan's sense of humour that hasn't already been said, but I just want to say this man always surprises me with how brilliant he actually is. What a video!

They know everything.
“He didn't even change his voice. It just sounds like him.”
Perfect. They get it and know what to joke about ð

Maybe a good idea: Pikachu hates Ryan Reynolds and breaks the 4th wall while he tries to steal Thor's hammer?— Dash (@DangerousDash) February 25, 2019
