Reynolds plays a bank teller, Guy in the Free Guy. Guy and the other NPCs (non-payable characters) have a regular routine that consists of morning coffee runs, followed by casual bank robberies.

Keery plays Keys in the film, one of the programmers of the game, who after the game is bought by Antoine goes to work for him.

As Keys is not a character in the game, he does not get involved in much of the movie’s action with Ryan Reynolds. The only scene they have together is when Keys’ colleague Mouser dresses up as a pink fluffy bunny, and he dons a cop outfit.

While talking about his experience of sharing the screen with Ryan, Joe Keery had nothing but admiration and appreciation for The Adam Project star.

“I was pretty blown away because he just makes it look really easy. And what he’s doing, it’s hard,” said Kerry. He also found deep appreciation for Reynolds and the Canadian’s work.
