When it came time for Deadpool to be cast, nobody could have done the job better than Ryan Reynolds. But in a recent Talks at Google interview, Reynolds revealed why he believes he was destined for the role...

"I was on a set, I was on the movie Blade Trinity... It was a movie where I got to have a lot of fun. I got to do the movie with a lot of my friends... But I played a character in the movie that I guess resembles Wade Wilson and Deadpool, and a rival executive at another studio said 'I saw a little piece of Blade, and, you know, you're Wade Wilson, you're Deadpool.' I didn't know it at the time. This was in 2004, I didn't know who Deadpool was, and he said 'Trust me, if they ever make a movie about Deadpool, you're the only guy that could play Deadpool.'

It must be flattering to be told that you are the only one who could play such an iconic character, but just wait, it gets better as the interview goes on.

"So he sent me over all these comics, and I'm not a big comic-book guy, but I really gravitated toward Deadpool. I fell in love with Deadpool. The first issue I opened up, I'm not making this up, I was on he panel. Like in the comic, it said Deadpool was saying 'I look like a cross between Ryan Reynolds and a shar-pei.' And I was thinking, Jesus, this is f***ing destiny."
