Is there anything Ryan Reynolds won’t do for Canada? After becoming new BFFs with Ottawa’s Mayor, and donating heaps of cash to Canadian charities, the Vancouver-born actor is now giving up his time to hang out with some of Ottawa’s chattiest 11-year-olds. In fact, their upcoming Ryan Reynolds interview sounds like it’s going to be hilarious.

Ryan Reynolds has never been shy about his love for Canada, and he’s made no secret of his affinity for Ottawa specifically.

In recent weeks, the Vancouver-born superstar has really shown his commitment to the capital city, by donating a hefty sum of money to Ottawa’s food banks, as well as local mental health charities.

Now, it seems the Deadpool star is stepping-up his connections inside the city, and he’s agreed to be interviewed by a trio of Ottawa’s most inquisitive fifth graders.

On Monday, the three 11-year-olds behind The Interview Dudes Podcast reached out to Reynolds via Twitter, inviting him to be on their web show.

Tagging Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson to vouch for them, the young trio explained, “Hi @VancityReynolds we know you get bombarded with requests but thought you’d be up for an interview with 3 eleven yr olds from Ottawa?” 

Watson, who has been interviewed himself by the young podcasters, also retweeted the kids' message.  

In true Reynolds style, the actor responded to say, “Get out the swear jar... let’s do this!"

He went on to joke, "Kidding. Not kidding. Kidding. Sort of.”

“I know the where. I just don’t know the when. I’ll DM you,” he added.

Tagging his new BFF in the message, Reynolds continued, “Thanks, Mayor Jim Watson for the assist.”

Reynolds’ and Watson’s bromance initially blossomed on the weekend, when the actor followed Ottawa’s mayor on Twitter.

After posting a sweet tweet about his new follower on Sunday, Watson had even more compliments for the Green Lantern star. 

On Monday, Watson responded to the very-Canadian interaction by saying, “Way to go guys! And thanks Ryan ...This interview is going to eclipse the one you did with me! Congrats.”

It’s not yet been revealed exactly when the Ryan Reynolds interview will take place, but it sounds like we’re going to hear it pretty soon indeed!

In a follow-up tweet on Monday, The Interview Dudes Podcast explained, “Jack, Nathan and Ben are busy this week! First off editing and mastering our interview with @ambermac, then an interview with @VancityReynolds, and then an interview with director @samikhan. #Grateful.”

We simply can't wait!
