In a recent interview with Yahoo! Movies while promoting his recent film, The Best Of Me, James Marsden threw out a pretty interesting suggestion on what actor he feels can portray the younger version of his character, CYCLOPS for Bryan Singer’s [X-Men: Apocalypse](movie:1194267). The film will reportedly have younger versions of the Cyclops, Jean Grey and Storm--all played by Marsden, Famke Janssen, and Halle Berry respectively.
According to Marsden, Luke Bracey, who is set to star in the remake of Point Break. Bracey also played Cobra Commander is last year’s "G.I. Joe: Retaliation."
"Yeah, that’d be great [if Luke Bracey took over as Cyclops]," he said before jokingly adding, "Then he could just eventually take over being me. Then I would never get another role as long as I live!", Marsden states. (Source: Yahoo! Movies)
Reports suggests that the characters will all be in their teens, since the film is set in the 1980s. Sure, Bracey is only 25. But, in my opinion, he’s got the youngster features for a teenager—well one that is over the age of 16, of course.
I dig it. But, I can see how people may think he's too old. Either way, I want to know what do you guys think. Is the suggestion far-fetched? Or Spot-On?
Give me your feedback. I'd love to know what you guys think, in the comment section, below. - Phoenix DA NERDETTE (@Da_Nerdette)
