TJ Miller and Ed Skrein may join Ryan Reynolds in Deadpool

01.06.2015

DEADPOOL is beginning to shape up as The Wrap is reporting a pair of actors in talks to join Ryan Reynolds in the long developing Marvel Comics movie. Sources cite TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION actor T.J. Miller and THE TRANSPORTER television series lead Ed Skrein as being in talks for the 20th Century Fox movie.

While it is unknown what role Skrein is up for, it could potentially be a foe for Deadpool. Skrein is best known for his turn as Daario Naharis on HBO's GAME OF THRONES before joining the TRANSPORTER series. Miller has worked steadily on big and small screen projects, most recently as a voice actor in BIG HERO 6 and HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 2. Miller also co-stars on HBO's SILICON VALLEY.

The sources claim Miller's role will be a comedic one that will play off of Reynolds' character. Who that may be is a mystery but one would expect DEADPOOL will lean heavily on the comedy side as evidenced in the test footage leaked last year. Expect more casting soon as we are just about a year away from DEADPOOL's release date, so director Tim Miller will probably start shooting by summer.

DEADPOOL hits theaters on February 12, 2016.

Ex-Shield Necromancer guy? Prolly just a guy who gives him weapons. I think explaining Bob might be too difficult. I'm still not totally on board with this, despite the footage and Reynolds. DEADPOOL is such a hard character, and absolutely doesn't work solo - which is why his current so-so comic (which has gotten better) has him teamed with a female black shield officer in his body, ghost Benjamin Franklin, and said Necromancer

SO excited for this film to just blow us all away. I just really hope they don't drop the ball again like they did with Origins: Wolverine.

But if the test footage is anything to go by, then we are in for one hell of a time.

Betcha Miller is one of Deadpool's voices, or one of his voices' voices.

I find TJ Miller hilarious he did stand up at my college a few years ago and did a great job. Ed Skrein seems to be a good up and coming actor too. This NEEDS to be rated R though.
