Preparation For Cable Role In Deadpool 2 Yields Instagram Pics Of Josh Brolin Covered In Blue Goo Art by Sir Robert Liefeld Josh Brolin will be playing Cable in the upcoming Deadpool sequel, which is great, because it gives the entertainment media an additional superstar actor’s social media presence to trawl for “news,” whereas previously we had to rely only on Ryan Reynolds.
