Josh Brolin is celebrating his 50th birthday today and Ryan Reynolds wished him a happy birthday in the hilarious Deadpool style. Hey posted a photo of Deadpool painting a portrait of Josh Brolin and in the image Brolin is posing for him as Cable in the image, but Deadpool is painting the actor as he emerged in 1985 as Brand in The Goonies. Reynolds posted this little note with the image:
“Happy Birthday, Bright Eye. You don’t taste a day over 40.”
This is not the only Goonies reference that has been made with Deadpool 2. In the Deadpool 2 trailer, there was a scene where Deadpool is wearing Chunks Hawaiian shirt from Goonies. If you missed that juicy bit easter egg, here is the tweet that pointed that little Easter egg out below.
Buddy of mine pointed out Wade is wearing the exact same shirt Chunk wears in ‘Goonies,’ which tells me #Deadpool2 is going to have some fantastic Easter eggs! https://t.co/QBfiq34Oxi pic.twitter.com/7QA0cAFrs5
