Hunt for the Wilderpeople‘s Julian Dennison Joins Deadpool 2, Making Your Wilderpeoplest Dreams Real
Julian Dennison, A.K.A. Ricky Baker for Taika Waititi’s masterpiece Hunt for the Wilderpeople, has joined the Deadpool 2 cast along with Zazie Beetz and Josh Brolin. In an Instagram referencing this Instagram of Daisy Ridley carrying Mark Hamill for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Beautiful future indeed.
To the news, Waititi who’s also in the superhero scene with Thor: Ragnarok, expressed his excitement on Twitter:

It’s unclear what role the New Zealand actor will play in the sequel, but his performance in Hunt for the Wilderpeople was nothing short of amazing. Reynolds himself had a lot of praise for the film when he saw it last year, and I can’t wait to see what their collaboration is going to look like. From the image, I want to believe that Deadpool will become some kind of begrudging mentor since Dennison has proven himself great in the role of the young son-like half of a weird road-trip duo.
Either way, Dennison clearly has a great amount of comedic talent, and it’s a great surprise to see the 14 year old on Reynold’s back staring into their bright future. Congrats, Ricky Baker.
