Gerard Butler if he officially does not do Captain Britain.

My vote.

Git it in one...top choice. Neal McDonough and has the ability to pull it off. 
@Lustwish: Don't tease me now...Is there really talk of a Capt Brit flick?!

 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.

Daniel Day-Lewis... but he would probably never do a comic movie. Might not look spot on but the guy is an incredible actor. I also like the Gerard Butler idea.

Since Clint has aged out of the role, I nominate - 

Dolph - Dang he looks like Joey from my 2 dads
Woody - he would revel in a role like this

I think out of all the nominations I would go with Bruce Willis, he's old.. but he doesn't look to old and heck Cable is supposed to be an older dude who time travels and all that weird stuff. The only down fall for Bruce is the lack of hair.

That buff old dude from avatar....

Definitely Gerard Butler.  He can carry the role and he's bankable.  Throw in some Hollywood hair and make-up, give him a CG arm and a big ass gun and its gravy.    It would be cool to have him cameo in a First Class movie with a young Cyclops and Phoenix.  He could possibly show up in the Deadpool flick and become the hero of X4/X5.  He could be the "deus ex machina" to the horrid continuity issues of the movie franchise.  You know, time travel and all.  He rescues Scott from "Phoenix" and brings Havok back from the '60s.

Cable was probably about 57 when he died in Second Coming. It was reported in one of the old editorials in Cable (in around the issue 30s) that Cable was in his mid to late 30s. He's only got grey hair because of the techno-virus, though this is perhaps a retcon, as I'm sure he was originally intended to be a grizzled soldier in his 40s.

Given his history, Cable would need to look like someone who would have been handsome in a different life. Mickey Rourke, a heavily made-up Neal McDonough or David Morse would be inspired choices.

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

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

Did you remember The Street Fighter Movie? If not, lucky you, but this guy played Guile. LOL No way he can do Cable with his grunts, moans and french accent.

Scott Steiner should play Cable http://userserve-ak.last.fm/serve/_/23776675/Scott+Steiner.jpg

The only person that could play Cable is Ray Stephenson from Punisher Warzone. Movie wasn't that good but I remember when I saw it I thought of Cable. He is 6'5 around 240 or so.
