RICK MORANIS stepped away from Hollywood in the early 1990's to raise his kids after his wife died of breast cancer . . . and he's basically been M.I.A. ever since.
But he's been lured out of retirement to do a commercial with RYAN REYNOLDS for Mint Mobile. The clip is mostly just Ryan fangirling over Rick . . . and it's awesome to see him again!
Ryan says, quote, "Everyone on set was completely star struck, most of all me."
