Ryan Reynolds: Having My Own Action Figure Is Cooler Than Being 'Sexiest Man Alive' (VIDEO)

Ryan Reynolds talks about 'Green Lantern' on 'Today'Landing the title role in the summer blockbuster 'Green Lantern' was a boon for actor Ryan Reynolds. Being named People's "Sexiest Man Alive" wasn't too shabby either, but playing Green Lantern has an edge, Reynolds said Wednesday on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC), because the role comes with his own action figure.

"My nephew is obsessed with these things right now," said Reynolds. "That's sort of a bigger win in the long run." He also got to play on high wires to simulate flying, which Reynolds said sometimes propelled him at speeds of 60 feet per second. "It was really interesting, and really terrifying at first, but then I got into it," he said.

Thought the stunts might have scared Reynolds, he kept his nieces and nephews in mind as motivation, thinking about how excited they were about the film. A Green Lantern fan might say it gave him the sheer force of will.
