Actor Ryan Reynolds and Sir Paul McCartney

TMZ, the entertainment gossip media group, reports actor Ryan Reynolds and legendary singer/songwriter Sir Paul McCartney have been nominated for chief of Walpole Island First Nation in Ontario.

They have until Thursday to have their names removed from the ballot, and if they do not they will be in the running for the nation’s election Sept. 19. They were nominated by the same two eligible electors.

TMZ reports that a non-Native can be chief, because of what it describes as a loophole in the election process dating back to 1868 when a non-member was chosen as chief, which set a precedent.
