Every actor has a specific quality that makes them different from others. It also gives them a distinguished identity as well. For instance, when anyone says the name Arnold Schwarzenegger, you would automatically know the movie would have a lot of action. In the same way, if anyone says the name, Ryan Reynolds, you would just know it will have a lot of humor. After working with Reynolds for the second time, Shawn Levy once talked about why he admired him so much, apart from his Canadianness.

Shawn Levy and Ryan Reynolds have been working together for a long time now. They both have various projects lined up. However, when they worked on Free Guy, Levy could not stop gushing over this fellow Canadian.

While playing various characters throughout their career, actors must know how to distinguish between different characters. Reynolds had played Wade Wilson in Deadpool before playing Guy in Free Guy. Consequently, during their initial encounter, the Canadian filmmaker conveyed to Reynolds what he expected from Guy. Levy provided an elucidation of the contrast between the two characters as well.

What made Levy admire the Red Notice star was that Reynolds gave him what Levy exactly wanted from him. In the 54-year-old’s own words, “And what I love about Free Guy is it’s still Ryan Reynolds, but it’s a very different character.” Well, apart from being Canadian, the director admired his fellow artist for his brilliant work ethic and his stunning skills as an actor as well.
