Ted Lasso has lassoed himself a bit of trouble. Oh like that.
The incorrigible fun (and occasional Deadpool star) Ryan Reynolds and It’s always sunny in Philadelphia star Rob McElhenney recorded their “disapproval” of a joke on the Apple TV + comedy and laughed at their ownership of the Wrexham AFC. The duo bought the Welsh football team (or “football club” in British language) last year and in Ted Lasso‘s latest episode “Rainbow”, which fell on Friday, Higgins (Jeremy Swift) notes that he “can not tell if buying the club is a joke or not.”
Reynolds and McElhenney both shared tweets Saturday with a letter jokingly threatening lawsuits against Apple TV + over the joke. “It has been pointed out that in a recent episode of Ted Lasso our very real ownership of the Wrexham AFC was questioned by an otherwise beloved character named ‘Higgins’, “the actors wrote. While we keep the incomparable Jeremy Swift carefree and honored to be mentioned on the platform that has brought us high quality programming right from Mythic Quest season one more Mythic Quest season two, we must insist that you stop refraining from casting doubt on our commitment to the club, the fans and the entire Wrexham community. “(McElhenney was a co – creator and contributor to Mythic Quest, which also streams on Apple TV +.)
As a reward “for avoiding trial”, the players also demanded that “2 LARGE boxes of Ted Lasso’s biscuits” be delivered to Wrexham’s home stadium, Racehorse Ground, before the team’s first match of the season on Saturday. (That game, by the way ended in a draw, repeating AFC Richmond’s matches Ted Lasso this season.)
The actors agreed to buy Wrexham in November 2020, where Reynolds expressed his desire to make the team “a global force”. A documentary tracing the team’s fortunes is currently being prepared.
Ted Lassofirst and second seasons are streamed on Apple TV +, with new episodes dropping on Friday.
