Default Re: The X-force Casting Thread

Xavier is in a wheelchair. Magneto doesn't get into fist fights. Not sure about you but I would perfer a down and dirty Cable that gets physical.

Also, if Cable is going to lead and/or star in a movie you would expect the studio to do after an actor that can be sold in the same way Jackman has carried X-Men.

Personally I'd go with someone like Armie Hammer. He's 6'5. Can act well. Has a deep voice. Can probably pull off this kind of Cable:

If not him at least someone similar. If they can find a guy like that in his 40s instead then gravy. If not thirties works too. Aging someone up is easier than aging down anyway.

Joss Whedon's MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING is the cinematic equivalent of Tony Stark building an Iron Man suit in a cave with a bunch of scraps
