Since his casting was announced, many have theorized that T.J. Miller's role in DEADPOOL would be decidedly humorous in nature. Some went as far as to assume he would be playing unfortunate sidekick Weasel which now looks to be official. Miller, currently starring on HBO's Silicon Valley, responded to a Twitter comment about his weight that seems to reveal the role.

The character of Weasel (aka Jack Hammer) was created in 1993 and has become Deadpool's key resource for weapons, intelligence, and other technological assistance. His origin was as a class-mate of Peter Parker's at Midtown High where he pursued the same internship as the future Spider-man at Oscorp. He also had a crush on Gwen Stacy that was ruined by Wade Wilson. The role comes with an option for three sequels, so if DEADPOOL is a hit we can expect to see a lot more of T.J. Miller.

Miller had a busy 2014 with roles in TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION and a voice part in BIG HERO 6. He continues to tour as a stand-up comedian. DEADPOOL seems like a perfect fit for his sense of humor and he should play well opposite Ryan Reynolds. It remains to be seen how his origin will play out in the film, but I expect it to be raunchy and hilarious.

DEADPOOL opens on February 12, 2016.

I have man love for Reynolds so I want this film to succeed both for him personally...and coz it's a comic book movie...but I fear it will go the way of Dredd. As for TJ Miller, it's possible that him and Stanley Tucci were the only highlights of that last TF instalment and given that TJ Miller wasn't in it that much...says a lot about the movie. Still his character in Big Hero 6 was funny as hell but how much is that down to the actor or just the animated mannerisms the character was given?

Can't fucking wait. I hope the first trailer will be just as good as the leaked footage.
