Ryan Reynolds hilariously reflects on his “A”-list stint on ‘Sesame Street’

(NEW YORK) — A little over a decade ago, Ryan Reynolds guest starred on Sesame Street.  A fan re-watching the beloved children’s series with his family reminded the Deadpool star of the time he dressed as the letter “A” and created a special problem-solving team comprised of Elmo, Abby and Telly Monster.

The fan shouted out the Canadian actor on Twitter by writing Sunday, “Watching a little @sesamestreet with the kiddo, and its an episode with @VancityReynolds and the gang doing an A-Team gag.”

Continued the fan, who also shared snapshots of Ryan dressed as a giant blue A, “Its a delight, for both me and the kiddo.”

As it turns out, Reynolds remembers his time playing games with his Muppet friends quite fondly, but admitted in a hilarious response that he ran into some problems on set.

“I remember how challenging it was to sing because the A-hole was so tight,” the 44-year-old actor jokingly confessed. “But I pushed through because kids all over the country were counting on me.”

Ryan Reynolds’ Sesame Street episode, called “A Team,” aired on November 5, 2010, where he starred as Big A and invites Elmo, Abby and Telly Monster to join his special organization, the A Team, which solves problems using words that start with the letter A.

The four also parodied the A-Team intro during their gag.
