Ryan Reynolds: professional superhero

While Green Lantern fans hold their breath in anticipation of Ryan Reynolds’ much-hyped turn in next year’s major superhero blockbuster, the double-R heart-throb has meanwhile appeared as another goofy superhero character: Kieran and Michele Mulroney’s Paper Man has been making the rounds at film festivals for a while, without apparently making much of an impact. It stars Jeff Daniels as a troubled, friendless writer whose loneliness is compounded by the fact that he has an imaginary superhero friend, played by Reynolds as a goofy send-up of Superman. The whole thing looks like it suffers from the usual list of indie clichés, but Jeff Daniels may be game enough to pull it off, and despite the obviousness of the ploy, Reynolds looks like fun.
