Ron Perlman campaigns for Cable role in Deadpool sequel

05.20.2016

Deadpool 2 Ron Perlman

You can add Ron Perlman to the list of actors who are gunning to play Cable in DEADPOOL 2. Stephen Lang and Dolph Lundgren have both expressed interest in the role, and yesterday Perlman took to his social media accounts to announce that he also wants play Cable. As for why the actor thinks he is qualified to portray the time-traveling mutant, Perlman said, "I'm the only one with Cable's friggin HAIR!"

 

The defense rests.......

Although I think Perlman (as well as Lang and Lundgren) would do just fine in the role, I'm kind of hoping that director Tim Miller will go with someone a little younger (but not too young) to play the comic book character. If you had to pick between the three, who would you want to play Cable in DEADPOOL 2: Lang, Lundgren or Perlman?

DEADPOOL 2 doesn't have an official release date yet, however it might be one of those upcoming untitled FOX/Marvel movies.

Honestly, I couldn't see anyone else playing Cable, now that I've read this. He fits the role perfectly.

Damn I'm torn.

Perlman is the fucking man. But so is Lundgren. Although, if Perlman got the role, it might also reignite interest in Hellboy 3. Or it could put Hellboy to rest once and for all if Perlman stuck with Cable for further installments.

I like Perlman and everything, but at this point the whole "campaign for the role of Cable," thing is becoming a bad joke. Every aging actor that has gray hair, a tall or muscular build, and is out of work/short on roles is tossing their hat into the ring. What a surprise...

Sorry, too old....

I love his acting and the characters he's played, but he's way too old for this role. They need someone physically imposing and at least 20 years younger. It's a shame....he has the perfect sense of humor to fit into a Deadpool movie.

Perlman can easily pull it off. Just look at his earlier work in Blade 2 and Alien Resurrection, heck even Sons of Anarchy. All he needs to do is just lose some of that beer belly.

OK, John C. Reilly is an inspired choice. You might say that in jest, but the man is awesome at pretty much everything.

I wouldn't be disappointed if Perlman got the part. But I really don't think he's the best choice. He's just too out of shape for the role and I question whether he has it in him to get into the shape required. Of the three choices in the article, I'd go with Lang.

I'm glad I don't have to be the one to choose.

I think both Lang and Lundgren would both do the part justice, but I think Perlman might be the best fit for the part... Probably, more so than Mel.

I've been saying Perlman for months now.

The guy had more than the hair, he has that awesome screen presence and knows how to act opposite of goofy characters. I really hope he is at least in Ryan Reynolds thoughts for this role. I would also like Mel Gibson, just so the movie could be one long Sugartits joke.

MEL!

Still holding out hope they go for Mel Gibson. I think any of these potential candidates would do well, but I think Mel could really blow this out of the water and be a big return for him... Can't wait for Blood Father!
