Posting on Instagram, Reynolds says the main theme of Free Guy is friendship. “And friendship is at its simplest, just showing up,” he said. Reynolds was able to wrangle a bunch of big names to appear in Free Guy in small cameo roles, and he thanked them in his post. “While I don’t have photos of everyone, here’s to all the incredible pals who showed up for this,” he wrote.
The images show off people like Channing Tatum, John Krasinski, Chris Evans, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, and Hugh Jackman, all of whom had roles in Free Guy.
Evans’ part was particularly noteworthy and funny, as the Captain America actor reacted to Guy’s use of his shield in a pivotal moment and exclaimed, “What the *sh**” while sitting in a quiet coffee shop. That joke, as it turns out, was a late addition to the script and was made possible after Free Guy’s original studio, Fox, was acquired by Disney, which owns Marvel.
Tatum had the biggest cameo of the bunch, appearing as the in-game character model for the human Keith. He shows up in the movie early on and actually has a semi-important role to play in the plot of the film near the end.
Krasinski, The Rock, and Jackman all had voice-only cameos, so it would have been easy not to notice them at all.
Not all of Reynolds’ famous friends had cameos in Free Guy, however, and they let him know. Thor actor Chris Hemsworth replied to Reynolds social media post, jokingly saying, “No worries, mate, least I could do. BFFs.”
Free Guy made $28.4 million at the US box office over its opening weekend, which was ahead of its lower expectations due in part to the ongoing impact of COVID. Globally, the film has now made nearly $54 million worldwide. Unlike some of Disney’s other new releases, the film studio decided against releasing Free Guy on Disney+.
According to Reynolds, Disney has already asked for a Free Guy sequel.
