Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney mark Wrexham visit with gin shots


The actors held a press conference at Wrexham’s Racecourse ground on Thursday after arriving in the North Wales town the day before and meeting with supporters in The Turf pub, next to the stadium.

It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia creator McElhenney, 44, said they had an “incredible” reaction from the town.

He said: “We’ve only been here two days and we just feel like we’ve been welcomed home.”

Reynolds said: “They’ll be bored of us soon I hope but it’s been pretty amazing. Last night we were at The Turf, probably had a few more drinks than we should have.”

He said he had not been expecting to have the “no-holds barred” conversations with supporters which they had on their first visit.

McElhenney added: “I was expecting to drink but I wasn’t expecting to do multiple shots of gin, which is exactly what we did. They just kept lining them up, shot after shot.”

Reynolds joked: “I’m surprised we didn’t end up out here on the pitch.”

The Deadpool actor, 45, told reporters he was hoping to bring friend and comedian Will Ferrell to watch a match.

He said: “He’s a pal, I just finished working with him, huge, huge football fan so I would love to see Will Ferrell at the Racecourse.”

He said his long term plans for the team were to “win, win, win” and said he had hoped for the team to reach Premier League.

He then apologised after being told he was live on television when he added: “Unless there’s a meteor in which case we’re all f*****.”

The pair, who trained with players on the pitch on Thursday morning, appeared to have embraced Welsh culture, with McElhenney talking of his love for the Welsh national anthem, trying out a few Welsh phrases and impressing with his pronunciation of the country’s longest place name.
