    The words 'Wolverine' and 'hip hop artist' should never be used in the same sentence imo

    Edit: According to IESB he is playing John Wraith AKA Kestrel:

    Hmmm, I am wondering who he could be playing...

    Maverick? Bishop? I have no clue. I don't actually know anything about this guy or his acting capabilities...

    I dont think this should even be a big deal. I remember when it was announced that Tanya Newbould was in X3 and she only had a 2 sec appearance.

    His part must be microscopic...nothing that might compromise the movie.

    yea but now they say he's gonna be Wraith. Which is kinda like the second in command to Stryker.

    He's a great force in music, imo, so hopefully he'll be a great force in acting as well. I won't judge 'till I see his scenes. :p

    He was apparently in Joan of Arcadia, which I watched, but I don't remember seeing him. I'll have to check on my DVD and see how his acting is.

    Someone at JustJared.com said he played God in an episode if that helps.

    I think everyone has managed to overlook the biggest thing this film has going: Gavin Hood.

    I have a lot of faith that he won't churn out a blockbuster sell-out of a film.

    All that matters is Hugh Jackman anyway. They could throw in Fergie and that wouldn't get in his way.

    Perhaps Hood knows the value of an on-screen gutting of Will.I.Am. by Liev Schriver. Hell Id pay to see that alone.

    How the hell did he get hired, there are actual good black actors that FOX can hire, he probably agreed to make the soundtrack for free, lol?

    They'll save Fergie for Dazzler in a future X-film :):p

    Lookwise, I like will.i.am for the role. Hopefully he can bring it (acting-wise).

    Teehee. South Park, what would I do without you...

    Anyway, I dont know much about this Wraith guy, so I'm not exactly let down by having Will.I.am play him. I just hope he doesnt bring down the movie.

    This is the first bad casting.

    But what are you gonna do?

    you cannot have perfect casting in a fox movie.

    As long as they don't sing "Humps" during the weapon X scene it's alright.

    Alright, this is what we have [confirmed] so far...

    Hugh Jackman as Wolverine
    Liev Schreiber as Sabretooth
    Lynn Collins as Silver Fox
    Danny Huston as William Stryker
    Taylor Kitsch as Gambit
    Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool
    Will I. Am as Kestrel
    Kodi Smit-McPhee as young James Logan (Wolverine)
    Tahyna Tozzi as ???
    Christian Clark as ???

    I like most of the cast. Reynolds, Kitsch and Huston seem to look their parts and I have a strong feeling that Liev is gonna be a Heath Ledger-like revelation as Sabretooth.
