T.J. Miller reveals a “weird” encounter on the set of “Deadpool” with Ryan Reynolds.

T.J. Miller is a comedian best known for his role on the HBO sitcom “Silicon Valley.” He also played Weasel, Wade Wilson’s friend and arms dealer, in the Marvel film “Deadpool,” which he reprised in the sequel, “Deadpool 2.”

However, in a recent appearance on “The Adam Corolla Show,” the “Deadpool” star discussed his upcoming comedy special, “Dear Jonah,” and recalled an awkward moment on the set of the Marvel film.

Miller claims that he and Ryan Reynolds were on good terms in the first “Deadpool” film because Reynolds was not yet a “huge movie star,” but that changed on the set of the sequel film.

T.J. Miller recalled:

“We had a really weird moment on ‘Deadpool’ where he said, ‘Let’s do one more take.’ And then, as the character, he was horrifically mean to me as if I’m Weasel. So he was like, ‘You know what’s great about you, Weasel? You’re not the star, but you do just enough exposition so that it’s funny, and then we can leave and get back to the real movie.'”

Although T.J. Miller stated that the team did not ask him to reprise his role in the upcoming “Deadpool 3,” he said he would refuse to return even if he paid twice as much.

“I would not have done ‘Deadpool 3’ if they came to me and were like, ‘We want you to do ‘Deadpool 3,’ and we’re going to pay you twice as much.'”

T.J. Miller also stated that, while he has no plans to reprise his role, he wishes former co-star Ryan Reynolds the best despite his obvious dislike for Miller.

Miller continued:

“I think [Reynolds] should make a ‘Deadpool 3’ and continue to make movies. I just think he doesn’t like me, and I thought it was weird how he expressed that. I’m at a place in my life where I don’t need to do ‘Deadpool 3.'”

“Deadpool 3” will be released on September 6, 2024, with Ryan Reynolds reprising his role as Wade Wilson, AKA Deadpool and Hugh Jackman reprising his role as the Wolverine.
