Deadpool 2 has cast the breakout star of Hunt for the Wilderpeople

Ricky Baker meets Deadpool. Yes!

Given that Hunt for the Wilderpeople was probably the best film of 2016, we should all be familiar with its lovable rogue, Ricky Baker.

As we all know, Ricky’s a “real bad egg” that’s capable of the following “disobedience. Stealing. Spitting. Running away. Throwing rocks. Kicking stuff. Defacing stuff. Burning stuff. Loitering. And graffiti-ing. And that’s just the stuff we know about.”

Truth be told, we can’t think of anyone that’s better placed to star alongside the ‘Merc with a Mouth’ in Deadpool 2. Happy days then because Julian Dennison will be sharing the screen with Ryan Reynolds in David Leitch’s sequel to the box-office smash.

No details about Dennison’s character have been revealed just yet, but we really hope he’s just playing Ricky again.

After all, who doesn’t love lines like “”Faulkner is cauc-asian” – well, they got that wrong because you’re obviously white” and “he’s molestering me!.”

The actor is the perfect fit for Deadpool’s smart-ass ways.

Giving Julian Dennison a warm ??L welcome as we stare off into our beautiful future together. #RickyBakerPool #NZ
