David Harbour Being Eyed for Cable in 'Deadpool 2'
The team behind the upcoming sequel to Deadpool is looking at Stranger Things star David Harbour for the role of Cable. The character has an extensive history with Deadpool in the comics, and has been teased extensively for the follow-up.
TheWrap reports that Fox is very interested in the actor, having given him a screen test. While nothing is confirmed in any way, Harbour isn't new to big screen fare. Last year, he played a role in Suicide Squad, though the role of Cable is sure to have a hell of a lot more meat on it.
Kyle Chandler has also been rumoured for the role. Either way, we know that Cable is on the way. Given that he and Deadpool are both associated with the black ops-styled X-Force team, it looks to offer a natural gateway into a film that Fox very much wants to make. X-Force is already in development, so that's surely being kept in mind as casting continues on Deadpool 2.
