Seth MacFarlane’s Western comedy A Million Ways To Die In The West had a tough time winning over critics and audiences, but there’s a good chance the irreverent parody of classic Westerns may find a warmer welcome on the home-entertainment market. In the lead-up to its October 7 release on DVD and Blu-ray, some selections from the film’s bonus features have found their way online, including a funny sequence featuring Ryan Reynolds getting shot repeatedly by Liam Neeson.
In the film, Reynolds makes a surprise cameo as a random saloon patron who’s shot by Neeson’s character, a tough-as-nails gunslinger. According to producer Scott Stuber, the cameo was a follow-up to Reynolds’ appearance in MacFarlane’s blockbuster 2012 film Ted, which also featured the Green Lantern star in a brief role without any lines of dialogue.
In the clip (which debuted at Coming Soon), you can see Reynolds run through various reactions to getting shot in the scene, which is actually more funny than it sounds.
The film, which MacFarlane wrote, directed, and starred in, will be released in both a theatrical version and an unrated cut with 18 additional minutes of footage. It co-stars Charlize Theron, Liam Neeson, Neil Patrick Harris, Amanda Seyfried, Giovanni Ribisi, and Sarah Silverman.
