How He Got The Acting Role

Carmen Cuba, the casting director, auditioned 376 children in her search for the perfect actor to fill those shoes. Rather than focusing on appearances, she says she was looking for a more subtle, difficult-to-define quality.

“Even when somebody doesn’t look exactly like the person, if they have an energy about them that’s similar, you almost start to believe that they look like them,” Cuba tells Tudum. “[Walker] had an energy that was very similar to Ryan’s, which is a hard thing to match. It’s the sort of a thing that you can’t teach someone how to do.”

Cobell had spent years studying Reynolds’ inflections and mannerisms. He’s been a Deadpool fan since he was seven, and he’s been training for this part since he was seven.

He goes on to say that his favorite feature of Reynolds’ performance is the rapidity with which he hits various emotional notes.

“He’s being really funny, but also really sad at the same time,” Scobell says. “You’re laughing while you’re crying. I really like that.”

According to Cuba, the search for young Adam began in April 2020, with production set to begin in July.

The hunt was restarted in August 2020, and Cuba got a self-taped audition from Scobell, who had no prior professional acting experience.

On August 4, 2020, Scobell submitted his audition tape. Only 18 days later, he was staring through a screen at his acting hero for a chemistry read. “I was really nervous,” he confesses.

However, his natural chemistry with Reynolds is noticeable right from their first read together.

Throughout the production, Reynolds provided paternal advice and even acting lessons to his young protégé.
