Jeff Daniels, Ryan Reynolds and Emma Stone in Paper Man trailer
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
One thing I’ve always liked about Ryan Reynolds is that he’s willing to take smaller parts in quality movies. His performances in ADVENTURELAND and WAITING were great and not something that someone on his career path would necessarily take. I hope that after he becomes a superstar (although some would already claim he’s a superstar) in GREEN LANTERN, he continues to do these kind of films. You can see his seemingly small part in the upcoming PAPER MAN alongside Jeff Daniels, Lisa Kudrow and Emma Stone. The film is about a shy and eccentric writer that has an imaginary friend (Reynolds as Captain Excellent) and then befriends a local teenage girl (Stone). Kieran and Michelle Mulroney direct from their own script.
I got a nice, quirky vibe from the trailer, so I think it will be a good time. As long as they keep away from any romantic element between Stone and Daniels, it should work well. The film hits theaters on April 23rd.
