Rumor: Pierce Brosnan Being Eyed For Cable in ‘Deadpool 2’
Sources and social media are pointing at Pierce Brosnan to play Cable!
After Ryan Reynolds posted a photo of himself, Hugh Jackman, and Pierce Brosnan on Instagram, speculation began. Pierce Brosnan together with Wolverine and Deadpool lead to many believing that Brosnan could be Cable. That speculation evolved into more credible rumors once other outlets started reporting the same. The team over at East Coast Movie Guys reinforced the rumor stating that this release “coincidentally” lined up with a casting announcement timeline they received from an inside source.
“… late last week, we were informed by one of our sources close to the project that we would all be finding out who Cable was within the next month or so…… For us to keep our ears close to the ground. Now this happens!”
In the past we’ve even seen IMDB claim Stephen Lang would be Cable, but they quickly redacted that casting choice. We’ve also heard that Kyle Chandler was chosen for the role but was quickly taken out of the running. Rumors say that this may have lead to Tim Miller exiting “Deadpool 2.” We even made a few fun selections for Cable ourselves.
As far as Pierce Brosnan being officially selected as Cable goes, the past has shown us that this is far from concrete. The actor has a slew of credits to his name and is no stranger to action even today. If he were to be selected for the part, I’m sure he would need to put on a bit of muscle. I’m also not sure how fans would feel about his very prominent accent and if he could get around it for the role. For now, let’s just leave this in the rumor mill and hope we will have an announcement soon.
