But all that momentum isn't stopping him from dabbling in smaller, independent projects. He starred in this year's tiny but adorable Adventureland, and now he's just added an independent project titled Buried to his plate.
In Buried, Reynolds will play a civilian contractor who is kidnapped in Iraq and wakes up buried in a coffin in the desert. According to Variety, he took the role to "stretch his acting chops in a movie with a claustrophobic premise, and one in which he holds the screen through most of the picture."
Clearly, the man has range. But which roles do you think are best for him: big, mainstream movies or smaller, indie ones?
