Dear Marvel gods, please make this happen! David Harbour aka beloved Sheriff Jim Hopper from Stranger Things could possibly play Cable in Deadpool 2.
Cable is the cyborg mutant soldier from the future and is the son of Scott Summers and Jean Grey. He’s infamously tied to Deadpool in the comics and they even had their own series together, Cable & Deadpool.
I think Harbour could rock the white hair and he can obviously pull off the grizzly charm. And I don’t see him having a problem in the chemistry department with Ryan Reynolds. If Harbour lands the role (yet again, fingers cross that he does) he won’t just be in one Marvel movie. He’ll star in the eventual X-Force movie and most likely have his own solo film.
Do you think David Harbour is the perfect Cable or do you have someone else in mind?
