These days I’m watching Mythic Quest, a TV series about a gaming studio building an MMO. While the series is quite funny and interesting (with the voice actress of Aloy in the cast), something else caught my eye.
The main character of the aforementioned show is Ian, the studio leader. Who is played by Rob McElhenney, also known from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.
Rob convinced Ryan Reynolds recently to buy a football club in the UK (Wrexham). And the interesting thing? They never met in person before.
In a pinch-yourself moment for success-starved fans of Welsh club Wrexham, Reynolds and McElhenney completed a $US2.5 million […] takeover of a team that plays in the fifth tier of English football.
I’m jealous. I want a football club as well!
As McElhenney’s ambition took hold, he wondered if he could persuade Reynolds to join in, despite only being acquainted via modern technology.
Although the ‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’ star recently revealed on a US television show that the pair met last month for the first time to shoot a promo for the football club, prior to their successful bid for Wrexham the pair had never come face to face.
Also, here’s a video from the stars:
