Now Michael Shannon Is Reportedly the Frontrunner for Cable in DEADPOOL 2
The Deadpool 2 Cable casting rumors just won't stop! Earlier today Brad Pitt was mentioned as being in the running for the role, and now Variety is saying that Michael Shannon (Man of Steel) is the frontrunner! They report:
"While no deal is yet in place, Shannon has been the top choice for about a week. Fox, the studio handling the film, had no comment on the news."
Ok... if this is actually really true real news, Shannon in the role of Cable is the best casting decision that the studio and the filmmakers could make. The guy is not only an incredibly talented actor, he would fit the role perfectly! The guy has the stature, the attitude, the intensity, and the humor to give fans the big-screen version of Cable that they want to see.
Up until this point, David Harbour has been my number one choice, but Shannon has taken his place. I really hope that the studio can close a deal with him and make this happen! What do you think about Shannon in the role of Cable?
Now, will someone please officially announce who will be playing Cable so we can stop this casting rumor insanity!
