Why Deadpool 2 Was One of Aubrey Plaza’s Worst Failures
Aubrey Plaza was a force to be reckoned with in the FX series “Legion” as The Shadow King. Plaza had her eye on another comic book movie character, but failed to get the role.
Plaza told Cosmopolitan, “There are a lot of roles that I really wanted that I didn’t get [...] The one that sticks out to me for some reason, I think it was ‘Deadpool 2.’”
The role Plaza attempted to get was Domino, the ludicrously lucky assassin and X-Force member. However, Plaza was ill-prepared, and the role ended up being played by Zazie Beetz.
Plaza said, “I had just come off a plane, and I think I was shooting ‘Legion’ at the time.” Plaza admitted she wasn’t in the right mindset at the time for the potential gig.
The actress confessed, “I really wasn’t in a good zone ‘cause auditioning ... you have to be in an auditioning zone, and I was in a ‘work zone.’ That one hurt.”
Plaza believes she and Ryan Reynolds would have made a great team in “Deadpool 2.” The pair will finally get to work together in the upcoming road trip comedy “Animal Friends.”
