Wolvie's babe and more

7 years agoby:
To follow up our Stryker casting scoop, IESB has apparently discovered who'll play Logan's love interest Kayla Silverfox in the upcoming prequel X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE.

Although names such as Maggie Q and Michelle Monaghan were in the mix (and even Natalie Portman was mentioned by director Gavin Hood), the role reportedly has gone to the decidedly attractive Lynn Collins, who's had supporting roles in recent movies like THE NUMBER 23, BUG, THE LAKE HOUSE and 13 GOING ON 30. Not an expected choice, but neither was Jackman back in the day.

Also, potential SPOILERS below...




The site Film School Rejects says that test footage of a rubber-suited actor was recently done for Fred Dukes, aka the Blob. The character, who possesses the mutant ability of extreme fatness, was in an earlier draft of the script as a former cellmate of Victor Creed (aka Sabretooth). It seems as though he's one of the mutants to survive whatever rewrites took place.

Extra Tidbit: There have been some pretty useless mutants in the X-MEN comic history (I'm looking at you, Maggott), but the power of morbid obesity is definitely getting stuck in the shallow end of the X-gene pool.

I like the idea of Blob, although he would be cooler in a full x-men movie. I dont know about this casting. Ive never seen her work so i cant judge on that. but isent Silverfox a native american? oh well what can u do.

yay... oh, boy

The only thing that's somewhat exciting about this project so far is Liev as the younger Creed. If they make this anything like X3, then I might be wanting to kill someone... like Tom Rothman.

A pale-skinned, green-eyed redhead cast as a Native American? You'd think they would've learned from Alba's freakish makeover in the FF movies that this kind of BS just looks, well, freakish.

But are we sure Collins isn't, in fact, playing Rose (from the "Origin" comic)?

Meh. And I was hoping they'd pick a Native American actress in the end...

And Maggott's mutation is far from useless. Disgusting, yes, but not useless.

The Blob

Not a bad character but wasn't he in X3? I think they had a cameo for him in the film and was in the deleted scenes of the X3 DVD, it said that they were testing "rubber suits" I just hope they don't make him like X3's Juggernaut, that was one of the big dissapointments for me in X3, but if the suit is a must then they should incorporate some CGI to make the Blob look cool on film.

Terrible actress

That girl is such a terrible actress, has an irritating voice. It's the normal bimbo without talent. Bad choice.

Ew... she was the chick who managed to be even more annoying than Ashley Judd in BUG. With all those fake tattoos and even faker declarations of lesbianhood to boot.

I especially don't want to watch this movie just because she's in it. *blech*

Blob has the ability to control his body's density, making him impenetrable and unmovable when he wants to be.

Don't diss Blob...

Blob isn't just 'fat'. He is like a cannonball. Think Juggernaut only fatter. If I remember correctly there was an issue where he was shot a few times in the stomach and his fat acted like a sponge and absorbed the hits and the bullets fell right out and he was still running right towards the cops and smashed right through 2 cop cars...
