Lark Mason and Ryan Reynolds on Antiques Roadshow

Lark Mason and Ryan Reynolds on Antiques Roadshow, November 15, 2021
Actor Ryan Reynolds visited Antiques Roadshow with a prop, Cleopatra Egg, from the new Netflix movie Red Notice. A true veteran, Lark Mason offered an expert evaluation and jaw-dropping auction estimate in this whimsical sketch that has been enjoyed, so far, by more than 3 million viewers. Responding to Reynolds's contrived history of the object, Lark Mason played along and opined that the egg was "commissioned by Cleopatra at the end of her life" in 30 BC. Two, he said, can be found in "public collections", but one of them "disappeared" during World War II, pilfered by German soldiers and hidden at a secure location, "up until recently".
Red Notice, which is now available for streaming on Netflix and stars Dwayne Johnson and Gal Gadot, along with Reynolds, is an action-comedy that pairs an FBI profiler and the world's most wanted art thief.
