Jack Kesy Joins The Cast Of Deadpool 2 As Major Antagonist

The Strain actor Jack Kesy has been cast as an unknown villain in 20th Century Fox‘s upcoming Marvel superhero sequel Deadpool 2.

Although he is not exactly a household name, Kesy has been quietly building a reputation for himself on film and TV alike. In addition to his numerous appearances as Gabriel Bolivar and The Master on the aforementioned Strain, he has also had a guest role on Ray Donovan and is currently filming for Claws. On the big screen, he can be seen in a minor role in the just released Baywatch.

Although Fox hasn’t revealed which villain Kesy will play in the Deadpool follow-up, rumors postulate that it will be none other than Black Tom. An Irish mutant who made his comic debut in 1976, Tom has the power to use plants and wood to project energy and manipulate it.

Per Superherohype, the source of this story:

Deadpool 2 is set to introduce two key characters from the X-Force world, including Zazie Beetz (Atlanta) as Domino, a luck-manipulating mutant, and Cable (Josh Brolin), the time-traveling son of the X-Men’s Cyclops. Leslie Uggams will return as Blind Al, Morena Baccarin as Vanessa, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead and Stefan Kapicic as the voice of Colossus. It’s also been confirmed that both an X-Force movie and a Deadpool 3 are being planned as separate follow-ups to Deadpool 2.

About the author

Reggie Peralta

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former UCLARadio.com disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for HonorSociety.org to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
