Ryan Reynolds Brings Rick Moranis Out of Retirement for Mint Mobile Commercial

By , 98.7 KLUV

Ryan Reynolds is a certified Hollywood darling, so it only makes sense he would bring a beloved '80s movie star back into the limelight.

Rick Moranis stepped away from acting in 1997 in order to raise his children after his wife passed from cancer. He's voiced various roles since taking his hiatus, but hasn't appeared in any on-screen roles. Until now.

Reynolds brought Moranis out of his hiatus in a commercial for Mint Mobile, reports Entertainment Weekly.

In the spot, Reynolds fanboys over Moranis, who helps advertise Mint Mobile's new unlimited plan.

"So, what do you want me to do? You want me to say something about Mint?" Moranis asks after he is introduced by the "Deadpool" star. "I've really got to get a phone."

An awkward beat commences after Reynolds says he just brought Moranis on because he's a "huge fan."

Moranis hasn't appeared in a live-action movie since 1997's "Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves," though reportedly, he has signed on to appear in the continuation of the "Honey, I Shrunk the Kids" franchise with "Shrunk," on which he will co-star alongside Josh Gad.
