Speaking to NME earlier this year, McElhenney, who bought football club Wrexham AFC with Ryan Reynolds, said he’s working on making Sir Anthony Hopkins a fan of the club.

“He is a big supporter,” McElhenney joked when NME asked about Hopkins’ thoughts on Wrexham. “No he didn’t mention it, but I’m going to make him a supporter.

“I’ve already sent him a bunch of gear and I’m going to hope that he puts it on and puts it up on his Instagram. We’ll see. We’re buds now.”

Along with It’s Always Sunny…, McElhenney also stars in Apple TV’s sitcom Mythic Quest, which recently concluded its second season.
