T.J. Miller opened up on the “Adam Carolla Show” podcast about the reason why he won’t be in “Deadpool 3”. Full transparency, he wasn’t asked to be in it. But he says if he had been asked, still a no. “I would not have done ‘Deadpool 3’ if they came to me and were like, ‘We want you to do ‘Deadpool 3,’ and we’re going to pay you twice as much.’” Why? He won’t work with Ryan Reynolds again.
He talked about a moment filming “Deadpool” when the cast and crew didn’t even know how to respond. He said, Reynolds was super mean to him in character, as if Miller was his character (Weasel). “We had a really weird moment on ‘Deadpool’ where he said, ‘Let’s do one more take.’ And then, as the character, he was horrifically mean to me as if I’m Weasel. So he was like, ‘You know what’s great about you, Weasel? You’re not the star, but you do just enough exposition so that it’s funny, and then we can leave and get back to the real movie.’” He called Reynolds “kind of an insecure dude” and says “it’s really weird that he hates me.” You never would get this vibe from the interviews they gave 6 years ago!
BTW…you can catch Miller’s standup comedy act in person this weekend at The Louisville Comedy Club.
