Morena Baccarin has joined the cast of Fox and Marvel’s DEADPOOL. The X-Men spinoff flick stars Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool, a disfigured, mentally unstable, and wise-cracking mercenary. Reynolds previously played the character in 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Baccarin has been set as his love interest.
Best known to Browncoats as Inara Serra from the short-lived but much-loved Firefly series, Baccarin also starred on Showtime’s Homeland. Her other TV credits include the sci-fi series V, the drama The Mentalist, and Heartland. She currently recurrs as Dr. Leslie Thompkins in Fox’s Batman origin series Gotham as well as voicing Gideon on the CW’s superhero series The Flash.
She will next be seen in Paul Feig’s action comedy “Spy,” about a desk-bound CIA analyst who volunteers to go undercover to infiltrate the world of a deadly arms dealer and prevent diabolical global disaster.
