After yesterday’s Deadpool movie announcement from 20th Century Fox, The Wrap is reporting that the studio has cast two supporting actors for roles in this X-Men movies spinoff. Silicon Valley alum T.J. Miller and Game of Thrones actor Ed Skrein are in early talks to join actor Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool, “The Merc With The Mouth.”
The website also states that Miller’s role is as “an additional comic voice to compliment Deadpool, who often breaks the fourth wall and speaks directly to the audience.” Skrein’s role is being kept under wraps as he is rumored to be portraying the main villain in the film. Blur Studio’s Tim Miller is directing the movie using a script written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. Lauren Shuler Donner is producing the film, which will hit theaters Feb. 12th, 2016.
