News has surfaced within the past few days that Sons of Anarchy alum Ron Perlman (Clay Morrow) wants to portray Cable in the upcoming movie sequel to Deadpool, Deadpool 2 – and he makes a rather convincing argument. Ron spent the end of the week last week on social media, releasing images of himself next to the fan-favorite mutant, with facts about why he’d be the perfect pick for the role.
It was announced last Thursday that there will be a ‘Deadpool 2′, which prompted Ron to start campaigning himself for the role of Cable. Also known as Nathan Summers, Cable is the adult son of X-Man Cyclops (Scott Summers) and Madeline Pryor (the clone of Jean Grey), and first appeared as an adult in the Marvel universe in March of 1990 within The New Mutuants comic, issue #87.
Take a look at the photos below – some from Ron’s campaign to be Cable – and others comparing Ron and Marvel’s Cable, and tell us in the comments if you think he’d be the perfect pick for the role. Are you a Deadpool fan who’d want to see Ron Perlman added to the already amazing Deadpool cast?
