Now, with next year's Deadpool getting closer and closer by the day, it's no surprise that the movie's cast are getting almost as excited about the prospect of its arrival as we are. So much so, in fact, that TJ Miller, whose role in the movie is still vaguely shrouded in mystery, might just have given away who he'll be playing in a fit of social media enthusiasm.

Now, in fairness, we already have pretty good reason to think we know Miller's role already - he matches up to a leaked casting call for what must surely be Deadpool's sidekick Weasel a little too perfectly for it to be coincidence, after all:

"Any ethnicity, late 20s to early 40s. Quirky, great sense of humor. Smart, funny, but more than a little bit slippery. Fast talker, always looking to make a buck. He looks out for himself first and foremost, but reveals loyalty at the end of the day."

Now, though, the actor himself seems to have given us about as solid a slice of confirmation as we're likely to get this side of an official announcement from Fox - a tweeted hashtag:

Because, let's be honest - what else does suggest to you?

Other than, y'know, weasels being pretty slender.

What do you think, then? Is this confirmation that TJ Miller is indeed playing Weasel? Who are the rest of the role-less cast playing, do you think? And just what do you think the film's plot will focus on?
