Here's What Russell Crowe Could Look Like as Cable in DEADPOOL 2
Deadpool and Cable creator Rob Liefeld recently reached out to Russell Crowe on Twitter asking him to read for the part of Cable in Deadpool 2. To his surprise, Crowe responded, and there was a little back and forth discussion about it and it ended with Crowe saying that if Ryan Reynolds "has any interest in that idea he'll find a way."
So at this point, it's all in the hands of Ryan Reynolds! Personally, I think Crowe would be awesome as Cable — he's got the badass build, look, and attitude to pull if off. He's even proven that he can pull off comedy. He was so good in The Nice Guys.
I have no idea if Reynolds or the producers would even entertain this idea, but they should! And if they did, we have a piece of fan art from Boss Logic showing us what Crowe might look like in the role. I'd love to see Crowe as Cable in Deadpool 2, but I won't hold my breath.
