Seeing as we’re not likely to see him portray Hellboy anytime soon, Sons of Anarchy star Ron Perlman has already got his next comic book role in mind. Luckily, it just so happens that the character is already confirmed to appear in the next few years. Read on to find out who it is?
Taking to his official Facebook page, the veteran actor expressed interest in playing Deadpool’s time travelling buddy Cable in the upcoming Deadpool Sequel. The character was confirmed to be in the film in the post credit scene of the original released earlier in the year. The actor uploaded a photo of himself to Facebook:
Perlman definitely has both the look and the skills to play Cable, the only issue maybe the actors age. At 66, it may be likely that the studio is looking for someone younger, given that most Superhero roles can expand to multiple films over several years. He’d certainly be a better choice than Dolph Lundgren or Keira Knightly who were suggested by the man himself.
With the film rumoured to be out as early as next year, we are likely to be seeing an official announcement in the coming months.
What do you think? Do you think Perlman would be a good fit? Who would you like to see spar with Ryan Reynold’s Merc with a Mouth? Let us know below!
