Casting 24/7 posted a casting call for Deadpool. As we all know, the film has a a working title called “Wham!”, however all the names of the roles are all in code names. With names such as “Shirlie” and “Albert”, its a bit confusing that is until we read the descriptions of each character.
Your guesses are as good as ours.
[RIDGE] Any ethnicity, early 30s to early 50s. Big, muscular, dangerous, violent, vain, insecure and more than a bit of a dick…. but with a sense of humor. He is not a psychopath, he’s practical but morally neutral—he doesn’t enjoy torturing people, he just doesn’t care. ROLE REQUIRES THREE SEQUEL OPTIONS.
[LINDSAY] Any ethnicity, 20s, attractive and worldly. Smart, tough, beautiful but a little bit broken. Nothing has ever been easy for her and she’s developed a thick skin and cynical outlook. But she’s not a victim—she may not have a great life but she’s holding it together and does what she needs to get by. She’s got a great sense of humor but it leans heavily towards irony and sarcasm. ROLE REQUIRES THREE SEQUEL OPTIONS.
[SIMON] Any ethnicity, late 20s to early 40s. Quirky, great sense of humor. Smart, funny, but more than a little bit slippery. Fast talker, always looking to make a buck. He looks out for himself first and foremost, but reveals loyalty at the end of the day. ROLE REQUIRES THREE SEQUEL OPTIONS.
[SHIRLIE] African American, late 60s to early 80s. Worldly, great sense of comedic timing, sarcastic, dry, funny. ROLE REQUIRES THREE SERIES OPTIONS.
[KATHY] Any ethnicity, early to mid teens. World weary, great sense of comedic timing, sarcastic, droll sense of humor. ROLE REQUIRES THREE SERIES OPTIONS.
[KEREN] Any ethnicity, early 20s to late 30s. Serious, big, tough. ROLE REQUIRES THREE SERIES OPTIONS
[ALBERT] Any ethnicity, early 30s to early 50s. Big, muscular, dangerous. ROLE REQUIRES THREE SERIES OPTIONS
Here are our speculations.
Based on the script that was leaked, “ALBERT” could be Garrison Kane, Sluggo or Wyre.
“Simon” is “Weasel”, Deadpool’s sidekick, which will most likely be what TJ Miller will be playing.
“Shirlie” is obviously Big Al, Deadpool’s Aunt May.
“Lindsay” could either what these actresses are auditioning for. We’re not sure if Lindsay could either be Copycat or Domino.
And “Keren” is definitely Angel Dust, which will be played by Gina Carano.
