Leslie Uggams Will Return As Blind Al In DEADPOOL 2

Leslie Uggams

So that's one hooray for Leslie Uggams, one hooray for Deadpool 2, and one hooray for every Deadpool fan that fell in love with her work in the first film.

When asked by BlackFilm.com if she has a role in the second instalment, Leslie simply replied: "Definitely".

Uggams joins the already-cast Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool, obviously), Josh Brolin (Cable) and Zazie Beetz (Domino).

Uggams is a Tony victor, Daytime Emmy victor, and has been nominated for a Golden Globe and a Primetime Emmy.

With Stefan Kapičić, Brianna Hildebrand, Morena Baccarin, and even Karan Soni reprising their roles as Colossus, Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Vanessa, and Dopinder the taxi driver, respectively, Blind Al's return shouldn't come as too much of a surprise.

Although Uggams may not be quite as big an addition as #JoshBrolin as #Cable, she is sure to pack in more laughs than the stoic time-traveller.

Played by Leslie Uggams - who by the way is quite the star, being a Tony award victor and a Golden Globe nominee with a singing and acting career that spans over 60 years - Blind Al is an elderly blind woman and Deadpool's roommate.

Deadpool 2 is expected to commence production this June to meet its unspecified 2018 release date. Lucky for us, it looks like Blind Al will also be making an appearance in the upcoming Deadpool 2.
