FIFA 23 has a Ryan Reynolds commentary Easter egg for Wrexham fans

If you play as Wrexham A.F.C. in FIFA 23, you may be treated to a voiced cameo by club owners Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney.

Ryan Reynolds has, surprisingly, done very little voicework for video games. The only credit of his we could find was for the tie-in video game to the awful Green Lantern movie from 2011, with his performance as Detective Pikachu in the live action Pokémon movie being merely video game adjacent.

Between his popularity and the games industry’s love of casting Hollywood actors, it wouldn’t be shocking to hear him pop up somewhere in a modern triple-A title but so far that’s not happened – or at least not as far as anyone knew.

It turns out that there is a high-profile game from last year that Reynolds makes a cameo in, one that was only discovered recently. However, would any of you have guessed that it’s FIFA 23?

This actually makes a lot of sense when you remember that Reynolds co-owns Welsh football club Wrexham A.F.C., alongside fellow actor Rob McElhenney.

Wrexham was added to the FIFA games with FIFA 22 and since it’s in FIFA 23 as well, EA must’ve decided to invite Reynolds and McElhenney into a recording booth to voice a few lines just for the hell of it.

We could only find a couple of videos capturing their cameos, but it seems neither of them appear in-game and only their voices are featured.

Their cameos are only triggered if Wrexham is playing, with Reynolds and McElhenny recording lines for specific matchups, with unique dialogue for playing against Liverpool and Stockport County.

There may well be more but considering how long it took to spot these it could be a while until they’re discovered, given how many playable teams there are in FIFA 23.

It’s a bit surprising that EA didn’t take advantage of the cameos for advertising purposes and chose to let fans discover them for themselves.

After all, it made a whole trailer to announce the inclusion of the fictional AFC Richmond team from Ted Lasso, along with the titular manager himself.

FIFA 23 is available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5, and PC.
