Cumming is Nightcrawler

05.30.2002

Remember that story about the kid from CAN'T HARDLY WAIT starring as Nightcralwer in X-MEN 2.  Nope, uh-uh, not gonna happen.  While he's out somewhere drowning his misery in a beer, Alan Cumming is celebrating.  The former "Cabaret" star beat out Ethan Embry at the last minute and has now signed to play Kurt "Nightcrawler" Wagner in X2.  No word on why Cumming was chosen over Embry but considering the obvious age difference between the two, the decided to have the character older than a teenager.  The previous report that Aaron Stanford (TADPOLE) would play Pyro still stands as he too has signed on.  Variety also notes that the script used will be the draft written by Dan Harris and Michael Dougherty NOT either draft written by Zak Penn or original writer David Hayter.  Production begins in just two and a half weeks in Vancouver.  Canada spies, get your photoscopic lenses and disguises ready!
