Hollywood stars Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney could be making an unlikely foray into the soccer business.
Wrexham, a Welsh team which plays in the fifth tier of English soccer, has revealed that Reynolds and McElhenney are the “two extremely well-known individuals” the club has previously said are interested in investing two-million pounds ($2.5 million).
Reynolds is a Canadian-born actor best known for starring in the “Deadpool” movies.
McElhenney, a friend of Reynolds, is an American actor and director who was the creator of TV show “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.”
Wrexham has been a fan-owned club since 2011.
Members of its supporters trust voted at a special general meeting Tuesday in favour of allowing talks to start with Reynolds and McElhenney.
The National League — the division in which Wrexham plays — has yet to start its season because of the coronavirus pandemic.
