The internet may still be upset that Deadpool didn't get Best Picture or Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar nods, but in 2016, the stars aligned for Ryan Reynolds. Since debuting in the '90s, Ryan Rodney Reynolds has been a reliable, unremarkable blonde mainstay of B-level TV comedies like Two Guys, A Girl and a Pizza Place, and B-level action flicks like Blade: Trinity or Smokin' Aces. But when Deadpool dropped, Reynolds -- 25 years into his career -- finally became a bankable star.
