Scene-stealing Tony-winning actress Leslie Uggams, who played Wade Wilson’s foul-mouthed roomie Blind Al in the first “Deadpool,” is returning for the sequel at 20th Century Fox.
Uggams will reprise her role, first confirming the news to Blackfilm this week. Blind Al became an instant favorite with fans, Uggams and Reynolds establishing a good bickering chemistry.
The film, which recently cast Josh Brolin as Cable and Zazie Beetz as Domino, will shoot later this year ahead of an expected 2018 relelase with David Leitch helming. Check out some non-official fan art that Rob Liefeld scored for the movie below:
