Local YouTube star to appear in upcoming Ryan Reynolds movie

Sean McLoughlin, aka Jacksepticeye, has confirmed he will be appearing in an upcoming movie starring Ryan Reynolds.

The YouTube celebrity from Cloghan in Offaly, who attended college in AIT and lived in Athlone for several years, spoke this week about his involvement with the movie, 'Free Guy', which is currently scheduled for release in December.

"It's a movie about video games... and who better to have in a movie about video games than the Irish video game man!" he joked.

In the film, Ryan Reynolds plays a bank teller who discovers he's actually a non-player character inside a brutal, open world video game.
