Ever since Deadpool fans and moviegoers saw the end credits scene where Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool guranteed to the world that no matter what, Deadpool 2 will feature the legendary and fan favorite X-Men character known as Cable. Since then discussion and fan castings have run rampant! Only now is there a possibility that the possible casting choices may have been narrowed down to one cool ass guy, who would fit the role quite perfectly.
While we had heard from multiple sources through out the year that this actor was being possibly looked at for the role. With a lot of concern being that is he the right age? The right personality? He definitely has the perfect look.
While nothing is confirmed and it's still just a rumor (that has several different sources). Right now it appears that 20th Century Fox is looking at Friday Night Lights, Bloodline, and Wolf of Wall Street actor Kyle Chandler to play Cable in the highly anticipated sequel.
Like I said, we had heard about this from multiple sources earlier in the year, but until today it hadn't been confirmed by anyone else so we had kind of held back from running with the scoop a couple of months ago. But this morning on Popcorn Talk's Meet the Movie Press, legendary film journalist Jeff Sneider of Mashable confirmed that actor Kyle Chandler is being discussed for the role.
20th Century Fox had no comment.
So what do you guys think about Kyle Chandler as Cable? I personally love the idea and if you have your doubts please check out Bloodline on Netflix!
Check out one of our favorite shows on Youtube below and if you just want to skip ahead you can see where Jeff Sneider reveals the key information about Cable around the 52 min. mark. As always, thanks for stopping by and don't forget to BOOKMARK EastCoastMovieGuys!
