Now Ron Perlman Wants to Play Cable in DEADPOOL 2
Deadpool fans are all eagerly anticipating the day when director Tim Miller and Fox reveal who they will cast in the role of Cable in the sequel. While we wait for that, several other actor's names are being thrown into the mix. Some of those names include Jon Hamm, Stephen Lang, Liam Neeson, and Dolph Lundgren. Now Ron Perlman is looking to get into the Cable action! He's posted a couple images with comments on his Facebook account saying things like, "I'm the only one with Cable's friggin hair!", which you can't really argue with!
When previously talking about the kind of actor they were looking for to take on the role, screenwriter Rhett Reese said:
“Strength, gravitas, a purposefulness that Deadpool doesn’t have. Deadpool’s kind of got ADD, and we think of Cable as someone who locks onto something and is going to get that thing solved no matter what.”
I imagine Perlman might be a little older than what the creative team is looking for, but if they did decide to go older, Perlman is definitely their man! There's no doubt he would be awesome. Cable will make his feature film debut in Deadpool 2, which is set to be released in 2017.
