Canada’s other famous Ryan, Ryan Reynolds, stopped by Conan O’Brien‘s late night show on Wednesday and played a game with the audience to find out what he was there to promote. After a few ridiculous suggestions, including a line of ham underwear and Reynolds Wrap aluminum foil, he revealed a new project: The Notebook 2 costarring Conan McAdams.
“Remember that vacation we took in Tijuana a few years ago?” the 40-year-old actor asked O’Brien. “We split that bottle of absinthe? Well, we fell in love, and I filmed it.”
They then cut to a clip showing the duo re-enacting the iconic scene from the 2004 film where the lovebirds realize they still have feelings for each other, complete with O’Brien in a blue dress, pouring rain and a passionate kiss.
Although Reynolds did caption an Instagram photo promoting the late night appearance with “Find out why the hell he’s wearing this dress and why I can never go home again,” wife Blake Lively seemed more than happy to forgive – with the help of a sweet treat.
“The ways I know that @vancityreynolds got himself into huge trouble on @teamcoco tonight: Not only did he come home with my true love, @levain_bakery cookies, but he personally toasted them for me and brought me a cup of milk WITH ICE. Literal brownie points,” the 29-year-old actress wrote on Instagram, adding a sweet quote from The Notebook. “#IfYoureABirdImABird.”
Lively and Reynolds recently welcomed their second child in September. Their four-week-old baby, which the actor confirmed was a girl during his appearance on Conan after slipping up in a tweet, joins big sister James, 23 months.
