VIDEO: Ryan Reynolds hijacks Hugh Jackman interview

Ryan Reynolds turned up during the press junket for Eddie the Eagle to rip the piss out of Hugh Jackman for our amusement

Ryan Reynolds can pretty much do no wrong right now. Fresh off the incredible success of Deadpool, which benefitted from the star showing up everywhere promoting the film, he's decided to spend some time highlighting another movie. To that end, he showed up during the press tour for Eddie the Eagle to ask Hugh Jackman inappropriate questions.

It's pretty funny stuff.

It genuinely looked like Reynolds just wandered by and you can tell that Jackman certainly wasn't prepared for his questions. We're getting the feeling that Ryan Reynolds is finally coming into his own as a charasmatic and hilarious performer who seemed to have a lack of luck with projects. Deadpool is certainly a perfect role for him but we're most looking forward to seeing what he does in the future as he gets the chance to shine as a leading man.

Oh and if you're curious about Eddie the Eagle its a sweet looking biopic of Eddie Edwards, a kid from England who dreamed of becoming the first British Olympic ski-jumper, and roped in a former athlete to help. It stars Hugh Jackman, Taron Egerton, Christoper Walken and Jim Broadbent and is directed by Dexter Fletcher. Here's a trailer.

Eddie the Eagle is in cinemas on the 1st of April 2016.
