REynolds is still number 1 but a second would be sean william scott ...  and yes i know not  the best actor in the world, but he has the right attitude  for the role

Had a discussion with my best friend the other day, she insisted that Ryan Reynolds was a terrible choice to play the Merc With a Mouth. When I questioned her as to who she would put in the role, she replied "Hugh Laurie". What do you think, is Ryan Reynolds a good choice? Did you like him in Wolverine enough to warrant him playing Deadpool through an entire film? If not, who should bring the Crimson Nutcase to life on the big screen? Hugh Laurie?
Does your friend read comics? O_o

Listen, as a man who has a ridiculous infatuation with Hugh Laurie...he is not Deadpool material. Ever. 


And Deadpool's movie isn't going to happen anymore. Let it die. He doesn't even have that big of a buzz, anymore.

Hugh Laurie is definitely not the right choice. I mean I just really don't see it working out at all.

 Hugh Laurie?

@AngelDust616: Hugh is funny, great dramatic actor, but his sense of humor is to british for Deadpool, i mean it coukld feel like if i am watchinga Fraiser Movie with Fraise in the Deadpool suit and yes i know Laurie is Dr House.
@cattlebattle: Jason is great for action roles, but i dont think of him as a funny guy.
Deadpool need to be funny at some point of the movie.

I've always though that movies would be good if they got an unknown named to play the lead. It would launch somebody's carree and no one would be like "What is Green Lantern going in Deadpool?" not saying that Ryan Renolds is not well known for the upcoming Green Lantern film. Out of all the choise I would chose Ryan Renolds and after that I would go with Seann William Scott like Man of Lengend suggested.

I'm gonna have to say that Ryan Reynolds would be the best choice hands down. If you don't believe me or have your doubts watch Van Wilder. You'll see why. And if you didn't like that movie or didn't think he was funny in it then why the hell do you wanna see a Deadpool movie in the first place. You obviously lost your sense of humor so there's no reason to see the movie you'll be let down regardless of who plays him.

I'm just saying correct me if I'm wrong but you have declared your hate for Reynolds in other threads or am I mistaken?

I don't get the love for Sean William Scott as Deadpool. Granted, he can do the manic, comedic part of the character but a solid part of DP's personality are those subtle (or not so subtle) moments of lucidity where the guy is shown to be a lot more sane than he lets on. For that element of the character, you need someone who can...well...ACT.

Matt Damon.   But I'm a nerd so I'm required to say Nathan Fillion.

Cmon people, that was for OP. Ryan Reynolds is near the only actor that could play Deadpool. And why the hell would ever think House could play him?

Sean William Scott maybe.  I don't understand why everyone was so stoked about Reynolds playing him.  Just because Reynolds is a Deadpool fan doesn't mean he can act.

Yeah, that my whole point, under that logic, like 4565 actors could play Batman since they are fans of Batman.
I like Ryan but lets face it, there is a list of guy that could do the job.
