Ryan Reynolds‘ increasing friendship with Rob McElhenney has left Charlie Day wanting more. The Wrexham owners were friends before they became partners of the Welsh soccer club. With their team rising in ranks, their bond has evidently become stronger as well. But what does it mean for McElhenney’s It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia co-star?

The comedian and Day have proved to be a powerful duo ever since their series premiered on FX. But the co-producer has quickly moved on to become an international name and making million-dollar deals with his new ‘best friend’ Reynolds. Now, The Cool Kids co-creator wants to have his own A-listed actor friend.

Who does not want to be friends with A-list celebrities? Not just fans, people from the entertainment industry share their feelings as well. Charlie Day discussed on The Jimmy Kimmel Show about potential actors he could become best friends with. The host asked whether there was any jealousy now that McElhenney was getting close to Ryan Reynolds. “He’s trying to trade up on me,” joked Day. While wondering who he could get closer to, Day mentioned Leonardo Di Caprio. But Jimmy Kimmel had another suggestion.

Kimmel suggested that he should steal one of Ryan Reynolds’s good friends instead. With that, the obvious choice was none other than the Marvel star Hugh Jackman. Day promptly agreed, going on about how Reynolds spent a big amount just to make a song for McElhenney’s birthday. He compared the whole situation to a bad movie from the 1980s where the sports jock steals a character’s good friend.
