Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges team up for the hilarious, supernatural 3D action-adventure R.I.P.D. as two otherworldly and "morally flexible" cops trying to establish law and order in the afterlife, and the pair weigh in on who they think would win in a fantasy match-up between Men in Black and R.I.P.D.!
"A fight to the death?" asks Ryan, while Jeff chimes in, "We have the advantage because we're already dead."
"Big advantage," agrees Ryan, joking, "And I'm a biter. I don't even punch, I just bite. It's always my first instinct."
In theaters Friday, R.I.P.D. finds Ryan as Nick Walker, a hot-shot cop who is killed in action, only to be transported to a sort of limbo to work for the Rest In Peace Department to protect and serve the living from an increasingly destructive array of creatures who refuse to move peacefully into the afterlife. There's he's paired with Wild West sheriff Roy Pulsifer (Bridges) to battle some seriously unruly "deados."
Watch the video to see what Ryan and Jeff thought of working with each other – and laugh about why you never, ever wear another man's hat!
