I'm sorry to hear it just dawned on you. Cos it's been discussed on here since the film was first announced.
Basically, it doesn't matter. A brief background cameo like that isn't significant; and if you want to make it so, then maybe Hank was using an image inducer to disguise himself or maybe it was a stand-in, because mutants weren't that accepted by that point in X2.
It's like the two versions of Sabretooth or Emma. There are going to be a few things that don't add up but such is the nature of films that are developed in this one-by-one fashion. Remember, M changed into a woman in the Bond series.
