Succession is not only a place where great actors stretch their wings but also the launching pad for some hot new Hollywood careers. Actor Matthew Macfadyen will now head from Roy family drama to dealing with the Merc with a Mouth.
Deadline reports that Macfadyen will join Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman in Deadpool 3, adding to a supporting cast that also includes The Crown star Emma Corrin. At the time of writing, there’s no word on who Macfadyen will play.
