It seemed like hundreds of actors were linked to the role of Cable in the upcoming Deadpool sequel, but Josh Brolin was the lucky one who landed it – and now we reckon he’s regretting it.
Ahead of Deadpool 2‘s expected release next year, Josh has been hitting the gym to work on nailing the physique of the Merc with a Mouth’s best mate, and we’re not at all jealous of his new diet.
“Cable’s coming, growing from the inside,” Josh revealed on Instagram. “Clean building from a past of donut travel to the present hard case that he is.
“No sugar. No bread. No pastas. The machine is being built. I’m pissed off. #cable #deadpool #ryanreynoldsismybitch”

We can only imagine how much Ryan loves the thought of being Josh’s bitch, especially after his reaction to Cable’s casting when it was announced last month.
True to form, Deadpool cracked the best joke about the news: “The f**k, Fox! You can’t play 2 characters in the same universe!! Josh Brolin was in Sicario and I was in Sabrina The Teenage Witch.”
According to reports, Josh has signed a four-movie deal with 20th Century Fox to play the time-travelling mutant assassin over the next several years, despite also appearing in the MCU.
As well as being leader of the X-Force, Brolin also plays Thanos — the Mad Titan who is set to star front and centre in the upcoming epic Infinity War.
