The Celeb-Packed Easter Egg You Probably Missed In Deadpool
As you probably picked up from the movie, the titular antihero of Deadpool chose his moniker as a cheeky nod to the “dead pool” that’s a running bet at Sister Margaret’s Home for Wayward Girls.
The bar, frequented by many a murderous mercenary, has its fair share of patrons who could easily croak at any time. And as you may recall, Deadpool’s BFF Weasel (T.J. Miller) had actually bet on Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds) to meet his fateful end next. But as seen in a new screenshot from the movie, the rest of the list is light on actual Deadpool characters, and instead includes a random assortment of real-life celebrities.
The roster includes formerly troubled stars like Miley Cyrus, Amanda Bynes, Lindsay Lohan, and Shia LaBeouf; controversial older celebs like Bill Cosby and Charlie Sheen; rappers Kanye West and Lil Wayne; and a random assortment of others, including Vladimir Putin, Judd Nelson, Kid Rock, Mike Tyson, Ozzy Osbourne, and Ned Beatty. Reynolds and Miller also make the list, as does Rob Liefeld, creator of the Deadpool comics.
