Honolulu Star-Advertiser - - DETOURS -

CAM­BRIDGE, MASS. >> Ryan Reynolds, who earned a Golden Globe nom­i­na­tion for play­ing the ti­tle role in 2016’s “Dead­pool,” was named Man of the Year by Har­vard Univer­sity’s Hasty Pud­ding Theatri­cals stu­dent group on Fri­day.

The award is pre­sented an­nu­ally to per­form­ers who have made last­ing and im­pres­sive con­tri­bu­tions to the world of en­ter­tain­ment.

“Ryan Reynolds is one of Hol­ly­wood’s most di­verse lead­ing men seam­lessly tran­si­tion­ing through var­ied gen­res of drama, ac­tion and com­edy in his rich and ever evolv­ing ca­reer,” the group said in a state­ment.

Reynolds is sched­uled to be roasted and re­ceive his pud­ding pot on Feb. 3.

In ad­di­tion to “Dead­pool,” the Cana­dian-born ac­tor has ap­peared re­cently in “R.I.P.D.,” ”Mis­sis­sippi Grind” and “Self/less.”

He stars with Jake Gyl­len­haal and Re­becca Fer­gu­son in the sci­ence fic­tion movie “Life” and with Salma Hayek and Sa­muel L. Jack­son in “The Hit­man’s Body­guard,” both due out this year.

He serves on the board of di­rec­tors for the Michael J. Fox Foun­da­tion for Parkin­son’s Re­search, and in 2007 raised more than $100,000 when he ran the New York City Marathon in honor of his fa­ther, who has Parkin­son’s.
