‘Deadpool’ Update: A Replacement Calls For 12-Hour Long Audition
The casting cards of “Deadpool” have instigated new assumptions, especially as to who is going to craft the character of Colossus in the upcoming venture. Earlier, fans have held the flag up for Andre Tricoteux, as throughout the year, rumors were going around that he is about to essay the role of Colossus. But with the progress of information, we get to know that Serbian actor Stefan Kapicic has replaced Tricoteux, post a brain-storming audition he gave to suit in the aforesaid role. Now, the news is Kapicic has been preparing in a tedious way to go under the skin of Colossus’ character.
It’s interesting that “Deadpool” has already wrapped up a major part of shooting and Kapicic’s entry surely marks a significant change in the process. Still, it’s not clear that why the replacement has taken place at this advanced stage of the venture.
However, in a talk with Entertainment Weekly, Kapicic explained that he was utterly messed up at first round of auditioning for being unable to understand the script. After repeated lessons, he got to understand the track.
Kapicic elaborated that he ended up with multiple rounds (may be 120 takes) on his third call of auditions. Director Tim Miller guided him for the last part of the audition. Almost a 12-hour long session screwed him up to bring out the best of him but his conversation indicated that the actor had a great time working with the casts and crews including Ryan Reynolds.
Reportedly, last week, Kapicic has finished his voice over and part of acting for the “steel-skinned mutant”, Colossus. According to the actor, who has gained certain popularity after appearing in multiple television series, his physical stature and Serbian accent helped him to bring out the right flavor of the comic-book character.
“Deadpool” is set to hit theaters on February 12, 2016.
