One of the Greatest X-Men Ever is This Guy?


Super Hero Hype reports that the role of Gambit in Wolverine has been cast.  

His name is Taylor Kitsch, an actor from Friday Night Lights. He joins Hugh Jackman (Wolverine) and Live Schrieber (Sabretooth) in the film directed by Gavin Hood, due for release in May 2009. Let’s hope he can live up to the role of Remy Lebeau, many-a-fanboy favorite.


  1. Kitsch is a great choice for Gambit. You may not know who he is, but I do, and call tell you he’s gonna crush the part. Go watch an episode of Friday Night Lights and catch his Riggins. The guy is legit. I’m MUCH more worried about the casting of Will.I.Am as the teleporter guy, then about Taylor Kitsch.

    Also, Josh Holloway would have sucked. I can’t see Sawyer playing Gambit. Jack would have made a good cyclops, though.
