In the Deadpool movie (2016), there's a betting system called the 'Dead Pool'. What are the names on the board, and are any of them references to the comics or other media?

  • Good edit, I was just about to make it clearer regarding the references after reading the first answer

According to two sources, the names are, or include:

Shia LaBeouf [Actor]

Bill Cosby [Comedian]

Rob Liefeld [Deadpool creator]

Ryan Reynolds [Deadpool actor]

T.J. Miller [Weasel actor]

Mike Tyson [Boxer]

Ozzy Osbourne [Musician]

Vladimir Putin [Dictator]

Miley Cyrus [Entertainer]

Kanye West [Entertainer]

Lindsay Lohan [Actress]

Charlie Sheen [Actor]

A dead pool is a betting pool in which the wager is on who, among the proffered candidates, will die next. For a non monetary example, see The Rotten Dead Pool.
