Truthfully, I think Jlaw was a bit miscast. The role didn't play to her strengths. She's a steely-eyed beauty, and did fine when she wasn't in makeup, given her crappy lines "I wanna be called Mystique," "mutant and proud," (ick). But when she was in makeup, she made zero facial expression, and she obviously couldn't see, so her eyes and facial expressions couldn't be used. Clearly Rebecca Romijn wasn't given a lot of lines for this reason, so why they wrote a lot of lines for her in the makeup made zero sense. Hopefully with the new look, she can do more.
This all goes for Nicholas Hoult as well. Look at what Kelsy Grammar was able to do, relatively speaking.
