This might be the best piece of casting news I’ve ever heard! Julian Dennison, who portrayed the hilarious and memorable Ricky Baker in Taika Waititi’s Hunt For The Wilderpeople has been cast in Deadpool 2.
Deadpool himself, Ryan Reynolds announced the Dennison’s casting with an official Instagram post. The image shows The merc with a mouth giving Dennison a classic piggyback ride.
Reynolds’ caption reads: ‘Giving Julian Dennison a warm 💀💩L welcome as we stare off into our beautiful future together. #RickyBakerPool #NZ’
Hunt For The Wilderpeople was easily my favourite movie of 2016. Dennison’s perfect performance and Taika Waititi’s masterful directing made the most unique and hilarious movie of the year. While we don’t know what Dennison’s role in Deadpool 2, we can safely assume that the young actor will give Ryan Reynolds a run for his money.
