Ryan Reynolds was afraid of disappointing Will Ferrell with his impression of him 

Spirited is the first musical of Ryan’s career. He had not done one before. So it was a surprise for both the actor and the fans that he was singing and dancing in the movie. However, for the 6 Underground star, the dancing, and the singing was not the toughest part of the movie. Instead, it was stopping him from constantly doing an impression of Will or saying the lines exactly as him.

“The hardest challenge of Spirited was not just singing and dancing and all the other stuff. It was to not do an impression of Will Ferrell to f***ng Will Ferrell,” disclosed Ryan Reynolds. Furthermore, the actor “ached” all these years to work with him and called him the greatest comedic actor who has contributed to the modern comedy lexicon.
