and what about 70's Hank?
Nicholas look basically the same as in FC, and the movie is set 11 years after FC.
So there u have the biggest example. These movies wont ever be realistic with the ages, either they have to be now.
Hank and I forgot, Lucas... should look 11 years older on this movie, but they wont do. So I dont see why Taylor, being 8 years older by the time of X4, cant be older Gambit.
They can even make him a bit older with make-up, if want it, so.... more support to the idea, then.
Whats more realistic/believeable?
- Taylor being 8 years older, and having a bit of make-up (if the director wants it)
- A totally different actor that wont look anything like Taylor?
I know the answer.
