Leslie Jones Wants To Be Deadpool’s Sidekick

Leslie Jones Deadpool

Ghostbusters and Saturday Night Live comedian Leslie Jones recently elaborated on some comments she made regarding wanting to be in next year’s Deadpool sequel.

Jones was being interviewed by Seth Meyers, a former Saturday Night Live cast member himself, when Meyers brought up the recent comments. Jones replied by first going to express her love for the character, but not without getting a little sidetracked when thinking about the man behind the mask:

“Oh my god you read that? Oh man, I love… first of all, Ryan Reynolds has got to be one of the finest pieces of specimen. Hmph. Blake, you are so lucky, but Blake is bad too so, ya know what I’m saying? I wonder if they compare their badness to each other, like “baby, I’m hotter than you today” ya know? On top of that he’s hilarious, and Deadpool I would love to be just the sidekick, just feeding him back the lines. It would just be so funny.”

With regards to what powers Jones might want her character to have, it might not come as a surprise that she knew exactly what she wanted almost instantly:

“I just wanna be loud. Just “waaaaahhhh” (screams), everybody’s clothes just come off of them.”

    Thankfully, that role is filled by a much superior point-by-point comedian. No disrespect to Leslie Jones, but she is a sketch comedian with only two different schticks, TJ Miller is vastly more versatile and to be honest, brutally funny.
