Ryan Reynolds is an actor who is willing to take on different roles to challenge himself and that is why he is one of the Hollywood actors that producers and directors love to work with. It would be very easy for Ryan Reynolds to act primarily in comedies and action movies such as "The Proposal", "Green Lantern" and "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" and never have to concern himself with the comments of entertainment critiques. Instead, Ryan Reynolds refuses to let himself become comfortable and pushes himself as an actor to demonstrate the different layers of his acting ability.
In 2014 Ryan Reynolds will be seen in the movie "The Voices", a comedy crime thriller and "The Captive", a thriller movie. Both of these movies force Ryan Reynolds to play a role that is unfamiliar to both him and to his viewing audience. One can imagine that when these roles were presented to him he had the option to turn them down and take on a role in which his audience was more accustomed to seeing him play. Yet, he took on these challenging roles and as such has ensured that now as he moves further in his career movie directors and producers will consider him for more serious, leading man dramatic roles.
In 2015 Ryan Reynolds will be seen in the movie "Selfless", a dramatic, science fiction thriller which he is currently filming. Over the course of three films Ryan Reynolds is forcing directors and producers to view him differently as an actor.
Some entertainment insiders feel that he is fine tuning his skills for a major project in the future and considering that he has six projects in development in which he will be either an actor, executive producer or both it is very likely that Ryan Reynolds will within the next year once again become a major name in Hollywood.
