Ryan Reynolds is having a really good week. Just days after being nominated for a Golden Globe award for his performance in "Deadpool," Reynolds is receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The dedication ceremony will take place in front of the Hollywood and Highland complex on Hollywood Boulevard at 11:30 AM PT. Keeping the "Deadpool" magic going, the film's screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick will speak at the dedication ceremony, along with Reynolds. Additionally, Reynolds' "Waiting" co-star Anna Faris will also speak.
In addition to being rewarded with the 2,596th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Reynolds earned his first ever Golden Globe nomination earlier this week for his performance in "Deadpool," a film that he fought for for years to get made. Reynolds responded to the news with a tweet, reading: “Thank you, Golden Globes! As we speak, the entire Deadpool team is engaged in a grotesque, early morning tickle-fight.”
The Hollywood Walk of Fame announcement also comes in the same week that "Deadpool" won Best Comedy at the Critics' Choice Awards, and Reynolds himself went home with Best Actor in a Comedy.
Directed by Tim Miller from a script by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, the R-rated “Deadpool” opened in February to positive reviews, and broke several box-office records on its way to earning more than $782 million worldwide. The highly anticipated sequel, which will feature “John Wick” co-director David Leitch behind the camera, is expected to begin production early next year.
