While his latest movie, “Green Lantern,” is drawing less than glowing reviews, Ryan Reynolds deserves a nod for his nonprofit work.

Reynolds is on the board of the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. In 2008 he ran the New York City Marathon for the cause, honoring his father, who had the disease. Reynolds raised more than $100,000 for research.

Started by Fox, who was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 1991, the foundation is led by some heavy hitters.

Fox’s wife, actress Tracy Pollan, is a board member, as are advertising exec Donny Deutsch; movie producer Kathleen Kennedy; KKR exec Marc Lipschultz; Lily Safra, widow of financier Edmond Safra; and Eva Andersson-Dubin, wife of hedge funder Glenn Dubin.

According to its web site, the group has funded more than $240 million in research.
