Ron Perlman Really Wants to Play Cable in Deadpool 2
Tim Miller's Deadpool movie has been one of the big success stories of 2016, and with a sequel already on the cards, the merc with a mouth's stocks are at an all time high. Both Miller and Ryan Reynolds have teased the sequel by dropping the name of Deadpool's most famous foil, Cable. Even before Deadpool 2 was confirmed, countless names have been thrown into the hat to play the beloved Marvel character, from Tom Hardy to Jon Hamm and even Kiera Knightley. Now, Ron Perlman is attempting to rally his fans by posting to social media about how he would be the perfect fit to play the powerful Marvel hero.

Or hair. I'm the only one with #Cable's friggin HAIR!

Certainly on appearance alone, Perlman would make a great fit for the Cable role. The New Yorker is no stranger to famed comicbook roles after playing Hellboy in Guillermo Del Toro's adaptations, and he would certainly have enough charisma to compliment Ryan Reynold's titular hero. But, Perlman isn't the only one that believes he'd make a great Cable. Artist Schaine Schroeder joined the fray, publicly backing Perlman for the job.

Even my fave artist got into the fray...

If there's ever a sign that a movement is gaining momentum when it comes to casting in geek movies, it's fan art. And, if Perlman's latest post is anything to go by, this one is definitely starting to gather some steam.

The defense rests.......
