Default Northstar Casting Thread

Just on a whim, who would you cast as Northstar, flying speedster and iconic gay superhero? The list is by no means complete or great. It's a very short list of brunnetes and openly gay actors.

My pick would be for Sean Maher from Firefly.




(Edit: Sorry! Instead of Cilian Murphy, whom might make a good Essex, I meant to put "Other". Feel free to suggest!!)

I don't think it has to be a gay actor. There is a gay actor playing a main character already. But, if I had to choose a gay actor to play him, I'd choose Matt Bomer.





By the way, Wentworth Miller is openly gay.

I would like to see Zac Efron as Northstar!

Northstar - the lamest gay character in the X-men universe

^ I bet you meant famous

I could see Matt Bomer delivering some humorous sarcasm or irony to the character based on a few interviews, definitely. I could also see Zac Efron in the role. I wouldn't have thought it.

I guess there's no love for Northstar then...?
He'd work great on either film or TV and there's a growing audience for the gay/lesbian genre that I think Fox should man up to bite into.

I don't have any ideas for casting, but I would definitely be up for Northstar appearing, maybe in Wolverine's movie as part of Alpha Flight. I agree with psylockolussus… but I would put priority on introducing Cable and bringing Nightcrawler and Angel back first. And I know he's a villain but… Mr. Sinister. Once I get Cable and Sinister, I will have all my priority X-characters on film.

Maybe Stryfe too for an X-Force sequel, but I'm indifferent on everyone else.
