Actor Ryan Reynolds has had several roles during his career, including that of the famous anti-hero “Deadpool,” but he may covet an entirely different one in the near future if he’s interested in becoming the owner of the Ottawa Senators team, which was officially up for sale.

At least that’s what the magazine “PEOPLE” revealed on Wednesday. Additionally, the British-Colombian responded to a user on Twitter telling him that the Ottawa club was “for sale” and should “become an owner” simply with the hand on the chin emoji, the thoughtful one.
However, the 46-year-old did not accept interview requests from the media.
If that scenario ever materializes, Reynolds wouldn’t be completely new territory when it comes to owning a sports team as he co-owns Welsh football club Wrexham AFC, who currently play in England’s fifth division prominence. The actor has also created a television series to air on Disney+, in which he documents the entire process of taking over the football organization alongside his business partner Rob McElhenney.
The idea of selling the Ottawa Senators was recently mooted for the first time since the death of former owner Eugene Melnyk. New York investment bank Galatioto Sports Partners has been hired by the team’s board to handle the sale.
