Despite playing snarky, sarcastic characters on screen, Reynolds has a reputation for being one of Hollywood’s most likable actors, contributing to his success.

During an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Reynolds and his Welcome to Wrexham co-star Rob McElhenney remembered a recent purchase that landed Reynolds in trouble.

The two actors became friends after Reynolds slid into McElhenney’s D.M.s and decided to buy part of Wales’s Wrexham A.F.C. football team — Without consulting his wife about the transaction.

The decision has since become a passion project for them, and they even made a docuseries about it titled Welcome to Wrexham. After purchasing shares of the team, they said in a joint statement, “It is a special day for the two of us to become the latest stewards in the long and storied history of Wrexham A.F.C.”

They added,

“Together with the players, the staff, the fans, and the local community; we can now pursue our goal to grow the team and return it to the EFL in front of increased attendances and an improved stadium, while making a positive difference to the wider community in Wrexham.”

In February 2021, the duo completed the club’s takeover, and a brilliant thread explains why they bought it. Entrepreneur and investor Joe Pompliano have looked at the impact their acquisition of Wrexham has had on the club.

The Deadpool actor feels good about buying into the third-oldest professional football club in the world and called McElhenney “the best businesses partner.”

In a meeting with Wrexham fans, the duo promised to invest $2.5M in the club’s players and facilities & signed a 25-year stadium lease in Wrexham so fans knew they wouldn’t move the team. Wrexham fans welcomed them with open arms as a result of their proposal.
