Hailed by his northern countrymen as "The Canadian Ham," actor Ryan Reynolds was even better known as the supreme idol to a mostly intoxicated, segment of the population, following his starring role in "National Lampoon's Van Wilder" (2002). The predictably bawdy flick helped him gain notice, but he suffered through a slow-moving portion of his career that nearly prompted him to quit. The reinvigorated actor went on to star in notable remakes like "The In-Laws" (2003) and "The Amityville Horror" (2005) before donning a fat suit to play an obese high school student in the romantic comedy "Just Friends" (2005). Reynolds followed with an appearance in the all-star ensemble crime thriller "Smokin' Aces" (2006) and starred in lower profile films like "The Nines" (2007), "Definitely, Maybe" (2008) and "Adventureland (2009). Stepping into the blockbuster arena, he was the mercenary Deadpool in "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" (2009) before heading back to the comfortable confines of romantic comedies with "The Proposal" (2009). Reynolds finally earned respect with the performance of his life in the indie drama "Buried" (2010), playing an Iraq War contractor buried inside a coffin and held for ransom. From there,...
