My brother and I were avid fans of Nickelodeon’s Fifteen, and at the time, we swore it was the best show on television. When I read that Ryan Reynolds appeared on the show, I had a strange flashback moment and remembered his character immediately. So I pulled the clip below, which is the first time I’ve revisited that show in 15 years (no pun intended). It turns out — the show is horrible — and almost unwatchable. I will refrain from re-watching episodes of Hey Dude — for fear of experiencing the same disappointment. Watch the clip below to see a young Ryan Reynolds trying to act. At least this proves there’s room for growth.
