Deadpool Casting Call Hints At Supporting Cast

deadpool-official

Last week, the Deadpool movie was revealed to be in production under the production title “WHAM!” Casting 247 has put out a casting call for “WHAM!” which perhaps gives us our first hint at what other characters we can expect to see in Deadpool.

Here's what they have listed:

[RIDGE] Any ethnicity, early 30s to early 50s. Big, muscular, dangerous, violent, vain, insecure and more than a bit of a dick…. but with a sense of humor. He is not a psychopath, he’s practical but morally neutral—he doesn’t enjoy torturing people, he just doesn’t care. ROLE REQUIRES THREE SEQUEL OPTIONS.

[LINDSAY] Any ethnicity, 20s, attractive and worldly. Smart, tough, beautiful but a little bit broken. Nothing has ever been easy for her and she’s developed a thick skin and cynical outlook. But she’s not a victim—she may not have a great life but she’s holding it together and does what she needs to get by. She’s got a great sense of humor but it leans heavily towards irony and sarcasm. ROLE REQUIRES THREE SEQUEL OPTIONS.

[SIMON] Any ethnicity, late 20s to early 40s. Quirky, great sense of humor. Smart, funny, but more than a little bit slippery. Fast talker, always looking to make a buck. He looks out for himself first and foremost, but reveals loyalty at the end of the day. ROLE REQUIRES THREE SEQUEL OPTIONS.

[SHIRLIE] African American, late 60s to early 80s. Worldly, great sense of comedic timing, sarcastic, dry, funny. ROLE REQUIRES THREE SERIES OPTIONS.

[KATHY] Any ethnicity, early to mid teens. World weary, great sense of comedic timing, sarcastic, droll sense of humor. ROLE REQUIRES THREE SERIES OPTIONS.

[KEREN] Any ethnicity, early 20s to late 30s. Serious, big, tough. ROLE REQUIRES THREE SERIES OPTIONS

[ALBERT] Any ethnicity, early 30s to early 50s. Big, muscular, dangerous. ROLE REQUIRES THREE SERIES OPTIONS

Keren's description fits Gina Carano pretty well, and she was announced on Friday as playing Angel Dust. The age range of Shirlie suggets Wade's old friend Blind Al, but the rest are a little tougher to pin down.

Also worth noting is that several of the roles require a three film deal, suggesting that these character will appear again in the X-Men movie universe, perhaps in a Deadpool sequel if the film does well enough on its own.

Deadpool opens February 12, 2016.

    Don't think it really describes Cable though. Vain? Insecure? Morally neutral?

    What's the difference between "Sequel option" and "Series option?" Could series option refer to bigger picture X-Characters rather than Deadpool specific supporting characters? 

  2. Wow the Simon character  fits me well except the age they want I'm 17 but very mature. I can talk fast and it's understandable, I'm tall smart, have a sense of humor, my friends laugh at everything I do, I was told that just looking at me makes people laugh. My email is Javonte1333@yahoo.com  if your interested  in contacting  me.

  3. I want Bob from Hydra to be in this movie
