Deadpool 2 was filled with hilarious and unexpected moments, but Brad Pitt’s cameo was probably the most memorable one. The famous actor could’ve demanded anything to star in this superhero blockbuster, but his request was pretty humble. Ryan Reynolds revealed he only asked for a cup of coffee in return.
Pitt’s appearance in Deadpool 2 was one of the most unforgettable cameos in recent memory. If your mind wandered off for a split second while watching it, you probably missed this epic moment. He played a superhero called the Vanisher, who was a part of Deadpool’s X-Force team. According to the lead actor, Pitt didn’t even want to be paid for joining the movie.
“I was told all he wants is a cup of coffee and I said, ‘Like a franchise or just one individual cup of coffee?’ And I was told one individual cup of coffee, which was really his way of saying, ‘I’m doing it for nothing.’ And it was a total solid and the nicest thing anyone could do.” explained Reynolds.
The Vanisher spent the entire movie invisible, until his final shot. That’s when fans discovered he’s played by none other than Pitt and this is what makes his cameo so amazing.
“I just loved it, because what’s more irresponsible than taking one of the biggest movie stars in the world and giving him a role that is utterly wordless and invisible with an exception of three frames of film? Yeah that’s kind of amazing,” said Reynolds.
