“I Nearly Rejected Cable Role” – Josh Brolin

Deadpool 2 nearly didn’t feature any Josh Brolin at all, according to the man himself – because he almost rejected the Cable role.

Brolin, who has also recently been seen in Avengers: Infinity War, said in a TV interview he was reluctant to take up another superhero-based movie so soon after his last.

Speaking to Jimmy Fallon, he recalled: “I almost turned it down – but I have the greatest wife ever.

“I was in the middle of Avengers, I was tired, and they said, ‘do you want to do this thing?’

“I said, ‘I’ve already decided to do one of these movies [Avengers]’, and [they said], ‘wait, do you want to do this other one?’”

He continued: “And my wife said, ‘why don’t you just read it?’

“And then I read it and it was really funny – and it’s Ryan Reynolds, man!”

Deadpool 2 sees Reynolds reprising his role as the titular hero, and finally hits cinemas this weekend.

Reviews have so far been mostly positive, with Rotten Tomatoes reporting a strong 86% approval rating.
