Stephen Lang Is Gunning For Cable In The Next Deadpool Movie


Spoiler warning! If you've been following Deadpool news or stuck around for the after-credits scene, you know that Cable will appear in the sequel. Now we wait on baited breath to find who will play the powerful mutant with a messiah complex.

When you ask, "Who should play Cable?" some people might say Liam Neeson or Jon Hamm, but more often than not they say... Stephen Lang. The silver fox, best known for his roles in Avatar and Terra Nova, is a dead ringer for the X-Force founder.

Fans clearly want Lang to get the role, but is the feeling mutual? You bet it is!

"Let's lay some CABLE. You know I want it," Lang tweeted. "This is pre-training. Thanks for spreading the word. #Deadpool" Check out the photo below that accompanied his tweet.
