“I haven’t watched a lot of these superhero movies,” Lundgren told Nerdist, but he was familiar with the superhero with “the funny mask,” Deadpool. The former Ivan Drago asked: “Isn’t there a character named Cable that’s coming? Like, he’s a big guy?”
When asked if he wanted to play him in Deadpool 2, Lundgren opined: “Well, I guess I could kick some butt doing that, I suppose. We’ll see.”
Cable, a telepathic gun-slinger with a bionic arm, was featured in a comic series with Deadpool called Cable & Deadpool. Sounds like just the kind of role that the former '80s action hero would nail.
These days, when Lundgren isn't appearing in Kindergarten Cop 2 or trying to wrangle his way into a Deadpool sequel, he's been busy conducting a series of Mythbusters-style stunts for Ford commercials.
Damn. From riding crazy motorized skateboards to pitching himself for Deadpool 2, seems like Lundgren is really living the dream.
