Ryan Reynolds (as Deadpool!) Spoofs Hugh Jackman for PEOPLE's Sexiest Man Alive Pitch
Ryan Reynolds did his most earnest Aussie accent to convince fans to vote for Hugh Jackman for PEOPLE's Sexiest Man Alive on Instagram
No, Deadpool, you’re not Hugh Jackman.
“G’day mate, Hugh Jackman here,” Reynolds says in a thick Australia accent. “Just reminding you to get your votes in for PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive. Cover’s coming up.”
Both actors have graced the cover in the past, with Jackman taking the honor in 2008 and Reynolds winning two years later. But with the Deadpool getup in full force, Reynolds isn’t making a solid case for a repeat.
Once again, Jimmy Kimmel Live will be revealing the stud who will be gracing the cover of PEOPLE s Sexiest Man Alive issue. Tune in on November 17 at 11:35|10:35 CT on ABC to find out who the 2015 winner will be!
Reynolds and Jackman are also both members of the X-Men movie universe, and costarred in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, in which Jackman plays the iconic, side-burned superhero.
If his history of impersonation battles with Jim Carrey tells us anything, Jackman is likely working on his comeback video already.
