Deadpool 2: Ryan Reynolds Says Search For Cable Is Ongoing

Deadpool Cable
Last night at the Golden Globes, actor Ryan Reynolds did not capture the award for Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy nor did the film itself take the top prize for Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy. Of course, that will not end the anticipation for Deadpool 2 or the speculation on who will be cast in the role of Cable, confirmed to appear in the upcoming sequel since the end of the first film. However, word on who will land the role is likely still a while away as Ryan Reynolds told MTV News the casting process is still ongoing.

During a red-carpet interview with MTVNews, Reynolds explained that they were still searching for someone to play Cable.

Still working on it, everybody’s still working on it. We’re not gonna start ’til we’re ready

Among fans, the popular choice to play Cable is Avatar star Stephen Lang, though the actor himself considers it unlikely that he will land the role. You can read a list of actors suited to take on the character in Heroic Hollywood’s article: 10 Actors That Could Play Cable In The Deadpool Sequel.

The Deadpool sequel is currently scheduled to be released on January 12, 2018.

    If they really wanted to make people laugh they’d cast Dolph Lundgren as Cable.

    It is quite possible that they have already found the actor who will play Cable and that the cast is completed. RR is very evasive as soon as a journalist asks him a question about deadpool 2. I am beginning to think that the machine is moving and that they are working hard to start filming in May 2017 in Vancouver. Two production websites have posted information that shooting on Deadpool 2 will take place in May in Vancouver (MY ENTERTAINMENT WORLD & WHAT’S FILMING?)
