The Stephen Lang from the Avatar film that debuted in 2009.
 
Would he be a good actor?
 
He is the perfect militaristic soldier type that would fit Cable's description.

I don't know the guy... but when I saw the title, I thought you meant Stephen Lang.  Sorry... but this is a comics site :)

@xerox-kitty: Cable is a comic book character and there is a similar thread that did not get locked.  : )

No really?!  I would never have guessed. 
 
I was referring to your confusing title that referred to an obscure X-Men villain as Cable.

That is an older thread that this one & doesn't seem to be related in any way to this one.

They are related because both talk about potential actors for comic book characters to play in live action movies. For instance, in the thread I posted as a reference, CATMANEXE mentions that Michale Clark Duncan can play as Apocalypse.  here I am talking about Stephen Lang, an actor who played in Avatar film, to play as Cable. I see no difference, except for difference with Cable and Apocalypse.

@Edamame: That was a thread asking how could play Apocalypse.  That's why it's in the Apocalypse forum, not the Cable forum.  But you can't ask for pre-existing threads to be closed when you make a duplicate. 
 
But to be more accurate, since this is about casting Cable then this thread is a duplicate of Who could Play Cable?
