Ryan Reynolds Reveals Favorite Joke Cut from Deadpool

There are a lot of outrageous jokes in the smash superhero hit “Deadpool” that made it through the editing process — but, not every joke survived. Considering all that was left in, it’s surprising what got through, even with the R-rating. But in a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, star Ryan Reynolds revealed the joke he missed the most.

In the interview, Reynolds said they improvised as many as ten to fifteen different jokes for each scene, and praised his co-star T.J. Miller for his improvisational skills. When asked what his favorite line was that ended up being cut, Reynolds said, “Blind Al (Leslie Uggams) says something about our duplex we live in. I say, ‘This isn’t a duplex — it’s hepatitis holding still.'”

If you’re wondering what that even meant, Reynolds added, “That was one of my favorite lines, which is sorta slightly stolen from ‘Funny Farm’: ‘This ain’t a bridge — it’s termites holding hands.’ So I can’t take credit for it.”

Since there aren’t too many “Funny Farm” fans out there, the joke might not have gone over as well as Reynolds would have liked…

“Deadpool” is now available on Blu-Ray, DVD and VOD.
