We are a few weeks away from the last episode of Late night with Conan O’Brien aeration. The final episode of Conan is scheduled to air on June 24. This episode featuring Ryan Reynolds as a guest aired in February 2008.
By Conan Coco Team The YouTube channel does post comeback clips sometimes and for some reason I decided to hit play on Ryan Reynolds’ clip today. I’m glad I did. He had just been named the sexiest man in the world or something.
The story Ryan Reynolds tells about not knowing Tom Arnold but also not knowing anything about him is spectacular. It’s weird to think there was a time in America when Tom Arnold was a huge star. It has drifted out of the spotlight for decades. I think I muted him on Twitter years ago (find me on @casspa), but there was a time when he was a legitimate A-Lister. Tom Arnold was also a famous recovering alcoholic that Ryan did not know.
Rumor has it Ryan is currently working on an R-Rated dead Pool animated series. Reynolds also recently bought a lower level football team with Rob McElhenney and just watched The Green Lantern for his very first time.
It’s crazy how a 2008 clip can look like 30 years old at this point because of how the quality of the camera has changed over the past decade. You could tell me this clip is from the 1990s and I almost believe you. If you’re trying to do the math in your head, Ryan is about 32 here.
The only reason my brain can sort of process this happening around 2008 is because Ryan Reynolds still looks like he’s filmed Just friends a year or two before. And I re-watch this movie every year. It’s one of the most underrated Christmas movies in the game.
As for the apologies to Tom Arnold, that is a lesson for everyone. You should never apologize to a recovering alcoholic by offering him alcohol. Conan knows it. Tom Arnold knows it. And Ryan will never forget him after this meeting.
