Cast This: Nathan Summers aka Cable

02.26.2016

A sequel to DEADPOOL was reportedly greenlit before the first film was even finished with test audiences. Now that the movie is a huge success with critics, fans, and box office receipts, there really is no question that a sequel is coming. The only questions are when will it happen and what will it look like when it gets here. The folks behind the sequel are adamant they’re not going to over-do production (i.e. budget) just because they can. You could say a big part of the DEADPOOL’s charm was its low cost social media marketing and local feel (Vancouver!). What you can expect however are some new characters, either friends or foes, to join in on the R-rated fun.

Note: Those of you adverse to post-credits sequence spoilers might want to remind themselves about the importance of the 2 weeks grace period I've just made up.

The people behind the DEADPOOL movie have been teasing an appearance from Cable for a while now; the Merc with a Mouth himself all but confirmed that the character will be making an appearance in the sequel during a post-credits scene. As you may know already, but if not here's a quick lesson: Cable is the son of Scott Summers (Cyclops) and Madelyne Pryor (Jean Grey), he was sent to the future and came back as an adult later joining the X-Men, and has been an enemy and ally to Deadpool ever since. He was infected with a techno-organic virus which gave him a bionic arm; his other powers include telepathic and telekinetic abilities, and he always seems to carry very awesome futuristic guns. As he explains: “Just think of me as one of those crazy relatives you don't want visiting too often."

You can see why a lot of fans are happy to hear that he’s going to be making his way into the sequel, but that leaves us with the question of which actor would be best suited to the role? In the post-credits scene Deadpool mentions a few candidatesincluding Mel Gibson, Dolph Lundgren, and Keira Knightley. Do any of those names jump out at you? The actor will likely be in the age range of 40-60 and capable of playing a badass.

Deadpool may have joked about casting Mel Gibson in the sequel, but I’m putting up the controversial actor the role of Cable. Imagine Ryan Reynolds and Gibson as frenemies, what's not to love? Gibson has been trying to repair his public image over the last few years with some interesting choices in movies, mostly action roles, but I trust an R-rated role of this nature would be right up his alley. They could even go as far as to take some of his greatest lines from that TMZ audio we all listened too! He can still kick ass, I’m sure of it, and this would be a great opportunity for the man to showcase it.

We also have AVATAR's Stephen Lang; the actor took to Twitter to campaign for the role and has been a fan-favorite choice for a while now. I can’t say I’m a fan of the social media casting that some actors take upon themselves - it never really seems to work for one, and can be a turn off. With Lang however, I just can’t say no to that grizzled look of his, he was Cable in another life I’m sure. He’s in great shape for a soon-to-be 64-year-old but do you think Lang has a realistic shot at playing Cable in DEADPOOL 2?

Then there is everyone’s favorite go-to actor to die in a movie, Sean Bean. It’s time to throw this guy a bone and give him the role full of comedy and action, without the inevitable death. He’s always great to watch and hasn’t yet stepped into a superhero role of any kind. He would work well as an older mutant don’t you think? Imagine Deadpool offering up a roast of the actor’s filmography as well, that’s just money.

Who do you think would be right for the role? If you were to ask DEADPOOL creator Rob Liefeld, he would tell you Mad Men star Jon Hamm was his top choice to play Cable. Hamm has been seen delving into all kinds of roles these days with parts in Black Mirror and Wet Hot American Summer, so Cable would be a fine addition for a lot of fans. Other decent options could be Russell Crowe or Liev Schreiber, both actors are familiar with the superhero genre as Crowe did some great work in MAN OF STEEL and Schreiber already played Sabretooth in X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE which might disqualify him unless they really want to have fun with that fact.

Who would you like to see in the role?

Extra Tidbit: At the very end of the credits, Deadpool mimics the post-credit scene from Ferris Bueller's Day Off and informs the audience that the character Cable will be included in the sequel and will possibly be played by Mel Gibson, Dolph Lundgren or Keira Knightley.

Options:

1 (the most fitting choice): Stephen Lang fits the bill physically and in the talent department. But he isn't getting any younger, which will hurt if Deadpool is used like Wolverine in the X-Universe (and hopefully one day, MCU), and he's not exactly a box-office draw. But if it's a one-shot, perfect. Otherwise...
2 (the studio/known choice): Mel Gibson. This could be his real comeback role. IF he's willing to play straight man AND second fiddle. So I'm going with...
3 (the Dark Horses):

3 (the Dark Horses): First, a bulked up Sean Pertwee. Because his dad played my favourite Doctor Who, Dog Soldiers was the tits and because why the fuck not. And secondly, Neil McDonough is probably the best choice other than Lang, but after playing Dum Dum Dugan and Damien Dahrk it might confuse fans. On the other hand, the meta-fourth wall-jokes would be awesome between him and Reynolds having both played multiple comic book characters (throw Chris Evans into a cameo as Johnny Storm for super larfs!)

Gibson, because think of the 4th Wall jokes...

I just want Deadpool to call Gibson "Sugar Tits" or have Cable kill someone and DP say "he wasn't even shooting at us, was it because of his nose?"

That shtick would get old fast. Expendables 3 already slightly poked at that. I hope if Gibson gets cast, the only fourth wall breaking would be a Mad Max reference or something along those lines. I don't want to see Cable be the butt of a dated & tired tabloid joke. Those kind of jokes would simply be uncomfortable to watch in the worse kind of way.

I don't think Mel Gibson was a joke and that's my pick. I like Kurt Russell and suggestion of Willis. Hell maybe even Stallone.

Gibson would be my personal ideal Cable. I like the idea of Kurt Russell, Stephen Lang, and a few other suggestions I've seen below me here like Michael Biehn. I had this funny idea after watching those closing credits that Cable (and maybe I'm the only one that thinks this would be funny) should actually be played by 2 performers. Say Mel Gibson, AND Kiera Knightly. Like, Deadpool liked his suggestion of her so much that he rejects the actual actor they cast and he sees her as Cable. We see

We see this badass grizzled old guy and every once in a while we see Cable through DP's eyes and it's this slender attractive woman instead. He starts checking her out every so often because she's really looking good and then we see Gibson's reaction to that. I would love that.

I never thought of Mel Gibson in this role but got to say I love that fan casting. Sean Bean is always reliable but would probably have to die. Kurt Russell is also a pretty cool choice but doubtful since he is now involved with the MCU. What about good ol' Bruce Willis?

I wish they could do a mixture of SCOTT EASTWOOD as young or current Cable and CLINT EASTWOOD as old or waaay future Cable. I know Clint is a little too old now but this would have worked if he 25 years younger. Hell, Clint still has it! It could still work even if it was just a quick cameo, only he would never do it.

That is actually a great choice. And I have no idea why I never thought about it as I love him. As long as he has time from his tv show I am totally down. It's funny he was in Arrow and I recommended Neal McDonough (also in Arrow). But yes. He has the chops, the look (dyed haired obviously), and can do accents quite fine. I fully endorse this. I still think they are going to go big time as the movie has made a shit ton of money and they have the budget for that but yeah...I fully endorse this,

Man, Manu Bennett is a tough son of a gun, but personally I don't think he can act worth crap. It'd be like casting a pro wrestler or MMA star in the role. Yeah, the actin scenes would be cool, be I think he'd all apart with the comedic stuff, which is what really sold the first movie.

OK, Henry Rollins would be f*cking GOLD! Like Lang he's a bit on the short side, but he'd make up for it in personality. I almost think because Mel Gibson is mentioned in the clip, he's almost LESS right for the part. Because wouldn't Wade Wilson keep eluding to the fact it's MEL GIBSON in his movie? I actually wouldn't mind someone like Brian Goodman in the part, but he's seriously lacking in audience recognition. When you get down to it, there are a lot of guys that COULD be Cable.

Stephen Lang's character in Avatar really does look like the living embodiment of Cable. However, I'm a firm believer that being the right man or woman for the role has lessto do with looking the part than it does with actual acting ability and, for that reason, Lang does not get my vote. Don't get me wrong, he's a perfectly decent actor and I think he'd make for a good Cable, I just don't think he'd make for the BEST one. As others have mentioned, I think it really boils down to the actor's

As others have mentioned, I think it really boils down to the actor's ability to successfully play off of Reynolds' Deadpool. For that reason, my #1 pick is Henry Rollins, whom Tarantinodork suggested. And my #2 would be Mel Gibson, yeah it sounds like he's the clear favorite, but his buddy movies really do make him seem like he'd be perfect. My #3 would probably be Doplh Lundgren just because the guy would seriously weep tears of joy to be cast in an A-List film at this point (just like he probably did when The Expendables came out) I mean the guy just starred in Kindergarten cop 2 for goodness' sake, this would be like a freaking miracle for him.

Gibson is a great character actor with amazing timing. We need someone like that to bounce off of Deadpool. Gibson is the only badass actor that not only fits the role, but can hold his own against a character as insane as Deadpool.

As soon as I heard him mentioned for Cable, and it just clicked. Seems like he would play off Reynolds really well. He also comes with a RIDICULOUS amount of potential material from both his cooky personal life and large filmography. Racism, Mad Max, Braveheart, Lethal Weapon...its just too good.

In my honest opinion (IMHO?), the key is going to be who is able to play well off of RR, err DP. I'd love to see Mel because he's shown he can switch from crazy to bad ass back to crazy to both...(Max, Riggs, etc.). To me, that would be a match made in heaven if their chemistry clicked...although, Sean Bean if a very intriguing option.
Just not (sorry Mad Men fan boys) Jon Hamm.

Personally I already know I'm gonna get burned for saying this, but get the man some acting lessons, and Kevin Nash. Cable is much larger than Deadpool physically. Not to the extent of colossus but he's hugely built and Dp has to look up at. Nash would be imposing over Ryan's 6'2 stature. The health of his legs might be a problem when it comes to an action comic movie but thats what stunt doubles are for. He definitely has the look at his age now, and while he can probably adlib as he got

But hey I like the guy.

why wouldn't they cast him based on age? He's 63 now, McKellan was 60 when they used him as Magneto and Stewart only a year younger as Xavier. I'm digging your choice of McDonough btw, but dont get this ageism argument.

@violentcop. X-Force would come out when he is probably 70. Now if he takes the Stallone route and takes legal drugs so he can bulk up that is fine but his age would be a factor for Cable. Magneto and Xavier aren't known for muscles so that is how Cable is different.

@The_ConMan. I really am confused. My 'infinite knowledge' ? I have never been a jerk on this site (been on this site since literally the beginning). And if you are going to be a jerk to me (it seems like your response was a

And if you are going to be a jerk to me (it seems like your response was a little rude) then you will be eating your words when it is realized Lang will not be cast. Now if I am wrong and Lang is cast I will glady apologize to you. Just not sure why the hate for me. I might look young in my picture but I am actually close to 40 so I am not a young dumb arrogant 'kid'.

@ The_Conman. wow...2 replies to me. I must be getting popular. Not sure why you're being rude but whatever...It won't happen. When X-force launches and probably a sequel he will just be too old for the role. But I guess I am young and wise and a hollywood exec according to you. Hate me all you want for my responses but my responses aren't rude and you're plainly just being rude. why? i have no idea.

Interesting

Neal McDonough, that's an interesting choice, I'm pretty sure he has the build too. I bet they'll want someone a little more famous though, not sure who that would be...Gibson?

Are you responding to my post or is this your own solo post? I said Neal McDonough. He is perfect for it.

Also, they might keep the budget low. People know Neal. At least people I know. And yes he is in 'Arrow season 4' but this guy deserves merit. He really is a great actor. He does look like Cable and he has the build. Just has to grow the beard and dye the hair black. If I knew how to contact Ryan Reynolds I would have by now. Neal McDonough is perfect for the role. If not him then Jon Hamm BUT still Neil. This would be a perfect casting. Neil McDonough should be Cable, simple.....

Neal McDonough (I know people will disagree)

Neal McDonough could work, he has the acting chops and has done action. Not too old and he does have the look and can bulk up and that man deserves more roles. Besides him...John Hamm. But I can't think of anything else. So I go with Neal McDonough
