Josh Brolin and Ryan Reynolds Do Battle With Playground Insults

By now, you’ve probably seen Ryan Reynolds and Josh Brolin on the big screen, doing battles with guns, knives, attempted drownings, swords, bullet-slicings, vehicular near-homicide, and much more as Deadpool and Cable. As themselves, however, they are generally charming gentlemen who don’t kill anyone. But that doesn’t mean they show up unarmed; the costars are still fully dangerous with an arsenal consisting of nothing but their wits.

In a more elegant battle for a more civilized age, the two faced off on BBC Radio 1’s Scott Mills show for  a recurring feature called Playground Insults. No language is off-limits (so maye don’t watch out loud at work), but the goal is to either crack the ther contestant up, or be so devastating that they cannot respond. Let’s watch the X-Force opponents go at it:

It’s interesting that everyone always goes to Green Lantern when it’s time to attack Ryan Reynolds, but nobody ever thinks to bring up Jonah Hex to Josh Brolin. (For what it’s worth, both men did their best in those roles, and Reynolds did meet his wife, so he wins in the end.) As for Reynolds’ suggestion for a Goonies drinking game, we might have to try his first suggestion but never, ever the second one.

Even the show’s hosts have trouble picking a winner; Brolin, it turns out, has a sharper sense of humor than his alter-ego Cable, and it’s a perfect counter-attack to Reynolds’ more overt name-calling. Who do you think won this old-school(yard) battle? Comment below and tell us why.
