I hate romantic comedies, except for Deadpool, Deadpool 2, Definitely Maybe, and The Proposal. Those four share some sort of magic that I just can’t seem to put my finger on due to the restraining order.

Over in AskReddit, there are lots of users probably more familiar with rom-coms and their respective power to entertain other people that aren’t me. I’m guessing that’s why u/Wolfdog55 asked all of those randoms what actors they would be surprised to encounter in a rom-com instead of emailing me care of Pajiba Advice. Typical.

My first thought was Adam Sandler before I quickly reminded myself that he has been the lead in several rom-coms over the years. My mind raced for a few moments before settling on the corpse of John Wayne. I know he’s been angling for a comeback lately with his Playboy interview in 1971, but I just don’t see how film studios would have the budget for the wizards and necromancers required to make it happen. That’s just my take on it.

Redditors had a lot of different ideas about which actors in a romantic comedy would signal they made a pact with Scientology or some lesser demon, like a casting director, to get the gig.
