TJ Miller says he won’t be working with Ryan Reynolds again, claiming his former ‘Deadpool’ co-star was “awfully mean” to him while he was in character on the set of the superhero movie.
In a new interview for the “Adam Corolle Show” podcast, the actor confirmed he won’t be in ‘Deadpool 3’ following a ‘really weird’ interaction he had with Reynolds while filming the franchise’s second installment.
“Would I work with him again? No, I wouldn’t work with him anymore,” explained Miller, who played Weasel, Deadpool’s close friend.
When host Adam Corolla asked Miller, 41, if he and Reynolds, 45, remained close after starring in the 2016 hit, as well as its 2018 sequel, the comedian claimed the success of the first film had “changed” his former co-star.
“I got on with him a lot better on the first ‘Deadpool’ because he wasn’t a huge, huge movie star,” Miller explained, noting that he still loved Reynolds “as a comedian.”
The ‘Silicon Valley‘ alum went on to call Reynolds an “insecure kind of guy” and noted that “it’s weird that he hates me,” before describing the tense moment that allegedly took place during the filming.
“We had a really weird moment on ‘Deadpool’ where he said, ‘Let’s do one more take.’ And then, as a character, he was horribly mean to me like I was Weasel. So he was like, ‘You know what’s great about you, Weasel? You’re not the star, but you just do enough exposition to make it funny and then we can go away and get back to the real movie,” Miller said of the alleged interaction.
He then called the alleged incident “not a great experience for me” and recalled that the crew members did not know how to react.
Although Miller has made it clear that he has no plans to return to the franchise on his own, the actor has hinted that he hasn’t been asked to return.
“I wouldn’t have done ‘Deadpool 3’ if they had come to me and said, ‘We want you to do ‘Deadpool 3,’ and we’re going to pay you double,” he said. declared.
“I think [Reynolds] should do a “Deadpool 3″ and keep making movies. I just think he doesn’t like me, and I thought it was weird how he expressed that. I’m at a point in my life where I don’t need to do ‘Deadpool 3,'” continued Miller, who said he doesn’t believe he’ll be playing the same role “for more than five years.”
Representatives for Reynolds did not immediately respond to Page Six’s request for comment.
Miller, known in turn as Erlich on HBO’s “Silicon Valley,” has already faced his own allegations.
In 2018, Miller denied co-star Alice Wetterlund’s claims that he was a bully on the set of the comedy series.
