It would make more sense to have a mutant who wasn't around in the 60's to go back because it wouldn't interfere with him/herself in the past i.e. Kitty, Rogue, someone who is younger.
The time traveler is the star of the film. Its the lead role.
They're not gonna make Ellen Page or Anna Paquin the star of the film.
Jackman's the most likely candidate.
