There could be more than one A-lister heading to Blackburn tonight as Rovers take on Hollywood-owned Wrexham in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

Rovers’ North Wales opponents are owned by actors Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney and have garnered huge media appeal and a growing list of celebrity fans since the takeover in 2021.

Reynolds and McElhenney are often pictured at matches, though more often at homes games.

However, with Reynolds thought to currently be in the UK, perhaps the lure of a sell-out away crowd at Ewood could tempt him to visit.

Another possible celebrity sighting could be Reynolds’ Deadpool 3 co-star Hugh Jackman.

Filming for the third instalment of the Deadpool franchise wrapped up in England last week, taking place in Norfolk, Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire, and in London.

This may mean Reynolds and Jackman are still in the country, and Jackman has previous with Wrexham having been at their first Football League match for 15 years, a 5-3 homes loss against Milton Keynes Dons, last August.

Meanwhile McElhenney has taken to social media to post a sick note template for Wrexham fans in North America to send to their bosses in order to watch the game against Blackburn.

The 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' creator is less likely to be in the crowd, having been at the PGA Tour's Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines in San Diego, California, last week.

On X, an account named @WrexhamCanada asked: “Hey @VancityReynolds @RMcElhenney and @WrexhamAFC, can you provide me with a sick note for work so I can watch the match on Monday?”

McElhenney took the initiative to reply, posting a screenshot of an iPhone note titled ‘Official Sick Note.”

It read: “To whom it may concern, @WrexhamCanada is hereby excused from work on Monday, January 29, 2024.

“They have a weird cough or something. If that’s not enough of an excuse, let’s go with the flu.

“Wouldn’t you hate to catch it if they showed up to work in that condition? They are cleared to come back on Tuesday, January 30, 2024.

“Oh, I think that happens to be the day after the Wrexham match. Weird timing. Best wishes, Dr McElhenney.”

Rovers will tonight be looking to get beyond the fourth round for the second time in as many seasons, having not managed to do so since 2016/17 prior to their run to the quarter-finals last year.

Wrexham, meanwhile, are looking to reach the fifth round for the first time since 1996/97, when they reached the quarter-finals as Division Two side.

This is the first meeting between the two sides since a 1-0 defeat for Rovers in North Wales in March 1982.

Rovers currently sit 18th in the Championship with just two points from their last five games.

Wrexham, meanwhile, are second in League Two, with four wins in their last five.

The winners of this fourth round tie will host Newcastle United in the next round.

The game is available to watch in the UK on BBC iPlayer or BBC One Wales. Kick-off is at 7.30pm (January 29).
