Who Are the Names on Deadpool's Dead Pool?


Celebrity dead pools are nothing new; I remember first hearing of them when I was in high school and comedy legend George Burns passed away.

In the movie Deadpool, of course, they took the idea of a dead pool to a new level, with the characters gambling on one another in a bar filled with mercenaries.

One would think that with a bunch of your friends being in a super-high-risk profession, you'd have plenty to choose from, but apparently there were even more familiar names on the dead pool.

Here's a rundown of the ones we spotted -- many of whom are either old, controversial, or...well, let's face it: would anybody be surprised if Charlie Sheen or Linsday Lohan's lifestyle was more dangerous than that of somebody who gets shot at for a living?

Anyway, what we were able to spot is a pretty impressive list for a movie filled to bursting with Easter eggs already:

Shia LaBeouf
Bill Cosby
Rob Liefeld
Ryan Reynolds
T.J. Miller
Mike Tyson
Ozzy Osbourne
Vladimir Putin
Miley Cyrus
Kanye West
Lindsay Lohan
Charlie Sheen

Of course, it could be argued that at least in the case of Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld, he also counts as a bar patron, since we saw him hanging out with Buck earlier in the scene.

Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, DEADPOOL tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.
