My thoughts on the first official pictures of Josh Brolin as Cable in Deadpool 2

Looks surprisingly convincing, even if he's nearly a foot too short. Brolin is good at playing hard men. If I were casting the film back in the '90s I'd have wanted Nick Nolte for the role, even if he was too short too. I doubt he'd have taken the role though. Comic book movies are not his taste. But if you see him in something like Mulholland Falls you can see Cable in him.

Hi, sum1! Wow, you're really critical of this height thing. Would that Hollywood could have actors who were actually the right height for this stuff. Nick Nolte would be good in the 80's, but by the 90's I don't know. He wasn't in the best shape.

Cable's height is pretty distinctive, at 6'8", thus important, even though it's not as significant as Wolverine's 5'3" height (which sets up Wolverine's whole personality dynamic).

Yeah, but finding a 6'8" actor in Hollywood is gonna be tough, sum1.

Finding one over 6' shouldn't be so hard. Even 6'4" would do. And actually, there are endless actors of all heights in Hollywood.

I agree, there are tall actors in Hollywood they could find. I keep complaining about Cyclops never being tall enough in these movies. I just don't think they could pull off 6'8" though. I guess Josh Brolin is just "in demand" at the moment, but he's not who I would've cast.

Thanks for the post, LightYears. I just heard about that. It's so sad and such a tragedy. I remember when Brandon Lee was killed on the set of The Crow, and I was so devastated. They really need to make sure everyone is safe on these film sets.
