Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds has confirmed the addition of a new actor to the cast, and you'll probably start humming "Ricky Baker" for the rest of the day because of it.
Hunt For The Wilderpeople's Julian Dennison has joined the cast of Deadpool 2, which Reynolds confirmed by sharing an image of Deadpool giving Dennison a piggy pack ride. The caption reads "Giving Julian Dennison a warm 💀💩L welcome as we stare off into our beautiful future together. #RickyBakerPool #NZ."
No word yet on who Dennison will play, but he should fit right in with fellow castmates TJ Miller, Zazie Beetz, Leslie Uggams, and Josh Brolin. While the film has undergone a few creative changes, including new director David Leitch stepping in for Tim Miller, the cast certainly has the talent and comedic chops to pull off something special.
