Fox has found its Deadpool 2 villain in actor Jack Kesy (The Strain), who is reported to be portraying X-Men bad guy Black Tom Cassidy.
In the comics, Black Tom Cassidy, who first appeared in a 1976 issue of Uncanny X-Men, is an Irish villain whose powers include the ability to control and bond with plant life. He shoots concussive blasts through his weapon – a shillelagh.
Jack Kesy is best known for his work as Gabriel Bollivar in vampire TV series The Strain and joins a cast that includes Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool, Josh Brolin as Cable, Zazie Beetz as Domino.
There are also rumours that three more X-Force characters (Sunspot, Feral, and Shatterstar) are being cast for a Deadpool 2 post-credits scene.
