Who Is the Secret Cameo in DEADPOOL 2?



  1. David Kostus says:

    She seemed delightful!!!!

  2. Coleman says:

    Given the subject matter and stellar cast (including Jeff Garlin and narration by Patton Oswalt) I’m fairly certain “The Goldbergs” could’ve been the subject of an entire episode all on it’s own. For it not to come up AT ALL was extremely disappointing. I don’t usually complain about what wasn’t discussed, figuring that the conversation will have a natural flow and some things will simply be left out. But c’mon man!! The Goldbergs is right in what I would consider this community’s wheelhouse.

  3. Tyler says:

    So, can Wendy just be on every episode of everything? I am so sad that there’s only one hour of this.

    Also, I keep getting “You are posting comments too quickly. Slow Down” every time I post something. I don’t feel like I’m typing inappropriately fast, and I only post one comment every third episode or so.

    • RagtimeGallifrey says:

      Whoa, slow down Tyler.  You posted that comment so fast I can barely read it!

  4. Chad says:

    I used to watch Wendy on Reno 911. She’s very good at improv and acting. And I’m loving her with Jeff Garlin on The Goldbergs.

  5. Luanne says:

    I’m glad you’ve gotten some ladies on the podcast lately.  It’s been a real sausage fest up in here.  😉

  6. Smart, funny and sexy with class, thy name is Wendi McLendon-Covey.

  7. Brian Mah says:

    You forgot the Goldbergs…?

    • CJB says:

      Right!  I kept waiting for this to come up as I think it’s a great show.  I wonder if it was “not allowed” for some reason…
