Aubrey Plaza reminisces about failing her Deadpool 2 audition

Aubrey Plaza, star of Agatha: Darkhold Diaries, explains why she didn't get the part she tried out for in Ryan Reynolds' Deadpool 2.

Aubrey Plaza, a veteran of Parks and Recreation, revealed that she had previously tried out for one of the roles in 2018's Deadpool 2.

Plaza was almost cast in another well-known Marvel project prior to agreeing to participate in the Agatha: Darkhold Diaries series on Disney+. 

Plaza acknowledged in a Cosmopolitan interview that of all the jobs she wanted but didn't get, her failed Deadpool 2 audition was perhaps the one she was most unhappy in. 

She added that because her attention was diverted by another project she was filming at the time, she wasn't in.

The best shape when she completed her audition for the Ryan Reynolds-starring superhero sequel. 

Coincidentally, the aforementioned project was the TV adaption of an X-Men character, Legion from FX.

"I don't know, but I guess Deadpool 2 stands out to me for some reason. I suppose I was filming Legion at the time, and I had just gotten off a plane," Plaza recounted.
