‘Britain’s Got Talent’ Dancer Yanis Marshall Stands In For Deadpool In Celine Dion Video
One of my favorite superhero movies of all time is Deadpool. It was not only a great action movie, it was also a clever deconstruction of the genre. I am super psyched for the sequel that comes out this month. The videos for what is sure to be a killer soundtrack are starting to come out including this one with Deadpool dancing to Celine Dion. I figured that wasn’t Ryan Reynolds but it turns out it was Britain’s Got Talent‘s Yanis Marshall.
You may recall that he was part of a dance group called Yanis Marshall, Arnaud and Mehdi who thrilled the crowd on BGT with their dance routines to Beyonce and other pop icons. Well, when they needed a dancing body double for Ryan Reynolds, Yanis is who they called. He was unmasked by Reynolds himself when he posted on Instagram,
Ever wonder, “How does Ryan Reynolds dance so beautifully? Did he have 8 bones surgically removed from his body in order to move as if a graceful swan had sex with Fred Astaire?” The answer may surprise you. Yes. I did have 8 bones removed from my body. But the dancing was all @yanismarshall. This man is not just a dancer… he’s an elite athlete, hero, and all around hilarious person. Follow him on Instagram. Put him in movies. Throw confetti at his feet when you see him. He is a gift to this weary world. #Deadpool2
Pretty darn amazing.
