It turns out Josh Brolin didn't sign up to play the time-traveling antagonist, Cable, just to add the badass role in Deadpool 2 to his resumé. He's also a huge fan of Ryan Reynolds' rom-com, The Proposal.
"I was a secret fan of The Proposal, having watched it several times by myself," Brolin told Entertainment Weekly. "I told Ryan. I was like, 'I don’t know why this is, and I don’t know what this means psychologically, behaviorally, emotionally, but I have kind of a crush on you.'"
The 2009 film follows an aggressive boss (Sandra Bullock) who convinces her assistant (Reynolds) to marry her so she doesn't get deported back to Canada. It's an endearing film, but Reynolds is skeptical about Brolin being a true fan of it.
"He’s mentioned it many times, which is weird to me because he’s so tough," Reynolds said. "I would just never imagine that. Like, he pretends he’s, like, all sort of New Agey sometimes and all this stuff, but deep down inside I just think his heart is made of some, like, jagged chunk of Yosemite granite. I don’t buy that underneath all this textured skin is a sweet little angel that loves romantic comedies. I don’t buy it. Not for a second."
Now we wonder if Brolin, who plays Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War, only signed up with the Marvel Cinematic Universe to be next to Mark Ruffalo, who starred in another 2000s rom-com, 13 Going on 30. Or perhaps it was Chris Evans' Before We Go? As Kris Jenner said, "this is a case for the FBI."
