T.J. Miller, from my favorite new comedy Silicon Valley, is going to co-star in Twentieth Century Fox’s Deadpool. We knew that. What we didn’t know, for sure, was who he’d be playing.
Miller will be playing be playing Weasel. WikiPedia describes the character in the following way:
“Weasel is a friend, sidekick, information broker and arms dealer for Deadpool. Weasel is perhaps Deadpool’s best friend. However, because of his frequent mood swings and tenuous mental state, Deadpool still often abuses or mistreats him, although Weasel has also displayed an opportunistic streak against his friend on occasion.”
Based on what I’ve seen from Miller in HBO’s Silicon Valley, this role sounds like something he can definitely have some fun with. Can’t wait to see him and Ryan Reynolds do their thing together. Should be pretty epic.
