I was going to say that age brings a natural maturity that could still be obvious even with the makeup on, and I'm used to Nightcrawler having a youthfulness to his character. Then again, I was just thinking how good of a job McKellen did as a younger Gandalf in the Hobbit despite being older in reality. So he could pull it off.
And I don't know if his acrobatic sequences will be pure CGI, but regardless, I think they could make it work.
