In the neverending quest to uncover more and more information about next summer's solo Wolverine movie, we have two new cast members to report: Friday Night Lights star Taylor Kitsch and Ryan Reynolds.

ISEB brings news of Kitsch joining the cast as sometime X-Man and full-time Cajun badass Gambit, aka Remy Lebeau, while AICN reports that Ryan Reynolds will make an appearance as Deadpool.

I'm more familiar with Gambit than Deadpool, but in any event, I'm excited to hear about Kitsch landing a role in a big movie – the man does stellar work on Friday Night Lights.
