Taylor Kitsch Cast As Gambit

Taylor-KitschWell, it looks like Gambit will be joining Deadpool on the Wolverine cameo train. We get wind of this casting from our friends at IESB:

We’ve been hearing whispers for the past few days that Wolverine won’t only feature an appearance by fan-favorite Gambit; the role’s already been cast. The IESB has been able to confirm with studio sources that Friday Night Lights star Taylor Kitsch will be playing Remy LeBeau.

So there we have it. We will see Gambit for sure, and it looks like an appearance from Deadpool as well. Now I don’t mind a few short cameos, but the reason a stand alone film appeals to me is because we will have an opportunity to really focus on one character of the X-Men. I want to spend time in this film figuring out what makes the berzerker tick as a person, I do not want to see him shaking hands and introducing friends for future franchise opportunities.

I have never been into the character Gambit. I dislike his headband and the throwing of playing cards has always bothered me (for no good reason). I think if I could make stuff explode with kinetic energy – eggs would be my object of choice. You get to add insult to injury, and it is October 30th every time you fight crime.

Despite my lack of love for Gambit, he is a very popular X-Man and it was only a matter of time before he was brought on board. I am not sure the Wolverine stand alone picture is the best platform in which to launch him – I would have preferred X-Man 4 but we will wait and see.
