Report: Deadpool 2 Producers Want Kyle Chandler to Play Cable
Who should play Cable in the Deadpool sequel? This seems to be a question that just about every comicbook fan has a strong opinion on, so it's safe to say that the people behind the movie will be taking a lot of care over their decision. From Keira Knightley to Stephen Lang, the array of acting talent being suggested for the role has been diverse to say the least, even if half of the suggestions have been tongue in cheek. Given the sheer volume of names that have been suggested for the iconic comicbook role, you might find this new rumor something of a surprise, because if it's true it means that the Deadpool 2 team have zeroed in on just about the only big name actor nobody has mentioned yet.

Speaking on Meet the Movie Press Mashable's Jeff Sneider said he believes the team behind the Deadpool sequel have circled Kyle Chandler's name for the role of Cable.

Opening quote
"There's been a name floating around for Cable for months. Hasn't changed. Don't know if it's changed. Didn't make any calls about this. This was just the name that has been out there for months. So take this with a gigantic grain of salt. The biggest grain of salt your tiny little brain can imagine. The name that is floating around for Cable right now is Kyle Chandler."
Closing quote

Now, if the person with the rumor is suggesting to take it with a pinch of salt, you should very much take it with a grain of salt. Personally, I could see Chandler having the personality and presence need for this kind of role, but I imagine many fans of Cable will be concerned that the Friday Night Lights actor doesn't have the physical presence that Nathan Summers commands. In other Deadpool 2 casting news, the same report suggests that Mackenzie Davis, who played Mindy Park in The Martian, has secured the role of Domino for the sequel, which is expected to land in theaters some time in 2018.
