Deadpool (aka Ryan Reynolds) Hilariously Mocks Kanye's Angry 'SNL' Rant

This is why Deadpool won't be hosting Saturday Night Live.

You know who would have been a good Saturday Night Live host? Deadpool. Think about it: Ryan Reynolds in character as Deadpool the whole time he hosts SNL. Then, after the show is over, he can just continue playing the character at all times, completing the transformation from Reynolds to Deadpool. Well, there's no SNL tonight, and Deadpool (or is it Ryan Reynolds?) just shared a rant about why he won't host the show when it returns on March 5. "I'm 50 percent more influential than MC Hammer, Apostle Judas Iscariot, the KIA Sorrento. Ten percent more influential than Barbra Bush, the Muppets, Bob Newhart." Wait. This is sounding kind of familiar... (opens in new tab) In a rare appearance not as Deadpool, Reynolds was on The Late Late Show this week, where James Corden offered some horrible sidekick ideas.
