Today on Meet the Movie Press, Jeff Sneider reported that Jack Kesy may have been cut from Deadpool 2.
Deadpool 2 will reunite audiences with the merc with the mouth and introduce audiences to new mutants in the X-Men universe such as Cable, portrayed by Josh Brolin. But one character portrayed by Jack Kesy may not appear in the theatrical release. On Meet the Movie Press, Tracking Board’s Jeff Sneider revealed that Jack Kesy, who was cast as the villainous Black Tom Cassidy, may have been cut from the film:
“I heard he got cut from the movie. […] I don’t know if we’re gonna be seeing Jack Kesy in Deadpool 2. We’ll see.”
While some fans may be disappointed it may not come as a surprise given the fact from the recent trailer it was heavily hinted Cable could be the main antagonist for the majority of the movie and the reason that X-Force is formed by Deadpool.
Directed by David Leitch, the film stars Ryan Reynolds as Wade Wilson/Deadpool, Zazie Beetz as Domino, Josh Brolin as Nathan Summers/Cable, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Stefan Kapcic as Piotr Rasputin/Colossus, Morena Baccarin as Vanessa Carlysle, T.J. Miller as Weasel, Leslie Uggams as Blind Al, and Karan Soni as Dopinder. Julian Dennison, Jack Kesy, and Shioli Kutsuna join the cast in undisclosed roles.
After surviving a near fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfill his dream of becoming Mayberry’s hottest bartender while also learning to cope with his lost sense of taste. Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor, Wade must battle ninjas, the yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavor – finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World’s Best Lover.
Deadpool 2 is scheduled to hit theaters on May 18th.
