Well, now that Deadpool is almost here, we turn our attention to that other character who we really hope to see soon… Cable.

After Rob Liefield said a while back that he hopes to see Cable in the next Deadpool movie (here), we’ve been wondering who we would like to see in the role.

And it seems we aren’t the only ones as Rob Leifield himself has apparently also been pondering it… and seems to agree with the fans as his choice as his Twitter below shows.

He tweeted the following after Mad Men star John Hamm picked up a Golden globe for Mad Men:

As massive fans of Mad Men and indeed of Hamm, we would be fully in favour of this.

What about you? Who do you see in the role?


Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
