    Found the following on the on the journal and blog of two X3 extras. No real spoilers still interesting to hear from there thoughts. By the looks of it they've been shooting on the huge Golden Gate Bridge/Alcatraz set in Burnaby. There is one VERY interesting unconfirmed revelation. According to dexshiran boxing legend and grill guru George Foreman will be making a cameo appearance in the movie as himself! :eek: I've pasted the X3 related bits.

    I think that Foreman part was a joke. Let's not get lost in wild speculation and take it seriously..

    I agree, he must be mistaken. Doing something like that would make the whole thing reminiscent of Will and Grace with their random celebrity cameo appearances.

    A boxing theme seems to have arisen what with Vinnie and now George. I am still amazed that Jones is in it. Did anyone see him in Gone in 60 Seconds? He only spoke once right at the end but man he was baaaaaad! More wooden than... there's a dirty joke there I know it.

    Did you emphasize(bold/red) the line about George Foreman Retroman?
    The paragraph following it he jokingly points out he won't be releasing any info.
    Maybe he started joking with the Foreman part. Who is A.D. and how did he get the script to know whether it's any good? I doubt the script is available to anyone outside the core production staff. I would take that Foreman line and everything he said after it with a grain of salt. The first paragraph is probably real.

    Grey_jeanie - I agree - he had a (marginally) larger part in Swordfish but was equally... umm.. <searches for a word I can use on here...> "bad" <gives up search>

    A.D stands for 'Assistant Directors', with whom there is usually a few, and whose job it is to assist... the director.

    Maybe Foreman is just selling grills at a mall or something when a fight breaks out. Kind of like that whole 'mundane, everyday commercial life gets interupted by crazy ass mutant hijinks' if he is in it I doubt it would be anything bigger than Stan Lee's Cameo in Spiderman 1.

    Hmmm......yeah. Either the Foreman referrence is a joke or it could refer to Bill Duke. More than likely a joke.

    why is it so impossible for George Foreman to be in it? I think that could work for a humorous cameo.

    This better be bullsh/t.

    The day the X movies start including celebrity cameos for the hell of it,is the day this franchise becomes laughible.

    Not really. I mean Macy Gray had a part in Spider-Man and I wouldn't say it made the franchise laughable.

    Didn't say it was one of mine. I am saying celebrity cameos can be done easily and not really ruin the movie.

    I agree. Just a quick look, and you could easily mistake them, enspeciallty if the person had never seen Duke before
