Marvel's movie about the weirdo anti-hero known as Deadpool has been doing the limbo for quite some time. Now that Ryan Reynolds is officially attached (finally!), things are coming together in a most promising way. They've even begun casting!

T.J. Miller and Ed Skrein are in "early talks" for unknown roles in "Deadpool," although it's thought that Skrein is in line for a bad guy role and Miller for something on the lighter side. That makes sense given Miller's previous roles on HBO's "Silicon Valley," and in movies like "Big Hero 6," "How to Train Your Dragon" and its sequel, as well as "She's Out of My League." Skrein is probably most well known for his role as Daario Naharis on "Game of Thrones," a role he left to star in an upcoming "Transporter" movie - a move that frankly boggles the mind, because tons of "GoT" actors manage to juggle movies, plays, and other projects when winter isn't coming, but hey, maybe he's allergic to dragons.

"Deadpool," which will be directed by Tim Miller, will hit theaters February 12, 2016.
