Also... Cable doesn't smoke.  Wolverine briefly had a little trouble with Greymalkin's anti-smoking systems during the X-Cutioner's Song.

Like I said in the crimson nutcase's thread about the same thing:

I think Jean Claude Van Dame would do good as cable.

I'm sure he's played roles in which he didnt smoke :P

This should be deleted, so that you can keep your street cred.

That's not the question.  Clint could play it.  Whether he should or whether he would... well, that's a different story.

He wouldn't and he shouldn't unless we got a time machine to get 1987 Clint.

Just how old do you think Cable is?  He was an old man when he first appeared, he spent years with X-Force, then more years with the X-Men... and several more years raising Hope in the future.

Clint is like 80.....I'll say Cable is 60ish

I say Dolph would make a better Cable, he has the face structure and remember cable is a giant man.

Cable is the man. You can't have some foreign Austrian or French kung-fu fighter playing him. I love Clint Eastwood, but he's as old as dirt. In my eyes, there's only one man that has the looks, demeanor, and swagger to play him. CLIVE OWEN. Yes I know he's British, so don't bother telling me he's foreign as well. Clive is an expessionless actor, much like Cable. Besides when Cable is in battle, he is very droll and emotionless on the outside, but we all know Cable is *#@^ complicated on the inside.Clive can pull this off.

good choice...But I say the Hoff LMMFAO
#31 Posted by Psimitar (13 posts) - - Show Bio

Kurt Russell would be my choice.  He's old enough and can still play a bad ass such as his roles in Soldier, Stargate and Escape from LA.

Agreed

don't rip me apart for this but couldn't an actor in his 30's play cable with obviously make up and added scars?.. I think it could be pulled off.. i don't think an older actor is necessarily needed just because Cable is an aged character.. Again he's jacked .. there aren't many old actors that can put on the type of muscle for a superhero movie.. again this is just my opinion.. wanted to think of what you guys thought of that?

#34 Posted by Punished (124 posts) - - Show Bio

Dominic Purcell....
Who cares if he played Dracula in Blade....

He's kind of short for Cable.

If this kid can shave some of his pretty little hair and work out a bit, I think he'll be a good go.

Hm... stressing my brain cells, aren't you?

Maybe Jürgen Prochnow



Or maybe Sky Dumont if we want a prettyboy








#39 Edited by CATMANEXE (17052 posts) - - Show Bio

old enough, big enough, smart enough, bad ass enough





#40 Posted by Risky (12629 posts) - - Show Bio

@Catman: OMFG why didn#t I think of him? Henry Rollins is so awesome and you are absolutely right. he would make the perfect cable. PLUS he isn proven to be a comic fan.

There is only one man for the job, the living legend that is Michael Biehn!!!! If he bulked up he would be PERFECT for the role IMO. Plus seeing as Deadpool is slightly satirical, it would be a nice spin on the whole Terminator thing to have Biehn come back from the future as a cyborg.

I say Kurt Russell would make a good Cable

Ron Pearlman.

Althought he is basically my go-to answer to any of these kinds of questions.

#48 Posted by DiabolicVision (52 posts) - - Show Bio

what about sly stallone, of course he would actually have to be able to act :P, but i kinda think he would fit the build and age.
