With principal photography under way on Deadpool 2, it’s time for everyone’s favorite Odd Couple to reunite.
Ryan Reynolds has posted a production photo of himself as Wade Wilson sitting with Leslie Uggams as his cantankerous roommate Blind Al. Is that an IKEA shelf in the background?
“Spent another day with this beautiful lady,” Reynolds wrote on Facebook. “Lost in each other’s ears.”
An acclaimed singer and Tony Award-winning actress, the 74-year-old Uggams earned widespread recognition for her performance in Deadpool as Blind Al, the elderly blind woman who’s the ideal roommate/foil for Wade Wilson.
Reynolds and Uggams are joined in Deadpool 2 by fellow returning actors T.J. Miller as Weasel, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Leslie Uggams as Blind Al, Stefan Kapičić as the voice of Colossus and Karan Soni as Dopinder, with newcomers Zazie Beetz as Domino, Josh Brolin as Cable, Julian Dennison in an unknown role, and Jack Kesy as a villain widely thought to be Black Tom Cassidy.
Directed by David Leitch (John Wick), Deadpool 2 is in production now in Victoria, British Columbia. The film opens June 1, 2018.
