Ryan Reynolds’ action vehicle Deadpool was something of a game-changer, singlehandedly proving that superhero movies could work blue and make a metric buttload of money doing it, too. But of course the single greatest revelation of the film was character actress Leslie Uggams in her scene-stealing role as Deadpool’s foulmouthed, ill-tempered roommate Blind Al. Having first rose to prominence during the ’70s and ’80s with a clutch role on Roots and award-winning turns on Broadway, Uggams saw a little spike in her public profile when she popped up as the unsighted, eminently quotable Blind Al. (Around that same time, she scored a clutch supporting role on Empire as well.) And now, new developments indicate that there‘s more Uggams where that came from.
