Who do you think should play Cable?

This seems like a tough role to cast. Off the top of my head, the first guy that comes to mind for me would be:

Ron Perlman

Stephen Lang has said he wants to play Cable. I think he fits the look and he was good in Avatar.

I think he'd be good except he's a fairly spindly fella and not a very good size match to the character... He weighs what, maybe a buck-60 or 65 and at 5' 10" he's a good 4 inches shorter than Ryan... Maybe if they give him some Gene Simmons-eque platform shoes and a suit similar to what Affleck is wearing in his new movie...

But there's the conundrum... It's easy to find a good look/size/age match to Cable... like say Arnold or Kevin Nash, but you also want someone that can actually act too... but I think Perlman would win in a fight between him and Lang... :lol:

First off.....Ben, that is just frightening.

Now, I love Ron but he is more known for playing the loud, wise guy, Deadpoolesque characters. Nate will require someone who can play more quiet, stoic, commanding.

Stephen Lang and Ron Perlman both look the part. But I don't know how long they'd be able to play a role that's probably really physically demanding. 5 years ago or so, I'd say hell yeah to either of them. Now I think Gerard Butler would be the man for the job.

Kurt Russell isn't doing much these days.

Imagine Snake Plisskin as the proverbial silver fox...

Along the lines of Marvel Now's big diversity push... I think bringing in Ving Rhames in a supporting role as G.W. Bridge could make for an interesting story arc...
