Movies And Shows Ryan Reynolds Rejected

Although Ryan Reynolds has had an impressive career so far, he has yet to work with any auteur filmmakers, such as The Coen Brothers. Unfortunately, Reynolds blew his opportunity to be in a Coen Brothers flick back in the early 2010s, when he auditioned for a role in “Inside Llewyn Davis.” The film, which eventually starred Oscar Isaac, Adam Driver, and Carey Mulligan, centers on the life of a fictional folk singer (ultimately played by Isaac) and his attempts at achieving success.

During Variety’s “Actors on Actors” panel with Taraji P. Henson in 2016, Reynolds claimed “Inside Llewyn Davis” was one of his last auditions at the time, but it was not a valiant effort by him. As he alleged, “It wasn’t the right fit, mostly because they’re very high class. They were just quietly shaking their heads, like, ‘What are you doing here? Do you have a SAG card?'” However, Reynolds is likely not upset about the loss, as he said elsewhere in the interview, “Isn’t it funny how sometimes you think, ‘Wow, someone else got it, and they ran with it, and it was perfect for them.'”

As for the role that Reynolds auditioned for and could’ve potentially landed, there are plenty of male characters in the film, including those played by Justin Timberlake and Garrett Hedlund. At the end of the day, Reynolds seems like he’s more comfortable outside of the Coen Brothers’ sphere anyway.
