The unveiling of Hollywood stars Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney as potential investors in the Wrexham AFC has certainly taken the football world by surprise.
If the proposed buyout were approved by the Wrexham Supporters Trust, the move would result in an investment of £ 2million directly into the National League club as he tried to return to the EFL after a 12-year absence.
After so long in the wild and coming close to hitting the wall, there is a real feeling that this move could be the start of an exciting new chapter for the club.
According to Celebrity Net WorthReynolds is worth around $ 150 million, with his involvement with the club coming from selling his brand Aviation Gin for $ 610 million to beverage giant Diageo.
Deadpool star Reynolds, who is married to former Gossip Girl actor Blake Lively, agreed to remain the face of Aviation for the next 10 years as part of the deal, after becoming a shareholder in the company in 2018.
He is not only the star of all of his ads, but he also has creative control over his marketing.
Forbes named Reynolds as the second highest paid actor of 2020, with his roles in Six Underground and Red Notice earning him $ 20 million from the streaming service Netflix.
Reynolds also owns a stake in Mint Mobile and is believed to have earned roughly $ 71.5 million overall last year before taxes.
Celebrity Net Worth claims his potential partner Rob McElhenney is worth around $ 50 million, and this appears to be one of his first ventures outside of acting.
Known primarily for creating the hit series It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, he has also appeared on shows such as Lost and Fargo.
In 2020, he created and starred in the Apple TV series Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet, a comedy about the video game industry.
