Re: Who would you like to play Deadpool in a Movie
Why would you cast a 50-ish, pudgy British comic actor as Deadpool?
When has Gervais even shown he could do a North American accent, for starters...it makes as much sense as casting Jack Black as Green Lantern (which nearly happened.)
It's a moot point because Ryan Reynolds is still connected to playing him somewhere down the line. Even if he doesn't, they are going to cast someone athletic with a comic motormouth, not someone short and dumpy.
