Gambit is my favorite X-Men character by far, which is why I was particularly irritated with his portrayal in director Gavin Hood’s misguided superhero flick “X-Men Origins: Wolverine.” Taylor Kitsch is probably a really nice guy, but he’s definitely not what I had in mind for Gambit. I keep hoping someone will do the character justice. Unfortunately, 20th Century Fox is keen on casting “Magic Mike” star Channing Tatum as Remy Etienne LeBeau in a standalone Gambit movie. Personally, I hate the idea. I Loathe It. I would love to see someone like Luke Evans tackle the role, though that’s probably not going to happen anytime soon. In fact, it seems Tatum is already in talks with producer Lauren Shuler Donner about the project. He recently told MTV News: I met with Lauren Shuler Donner. And I would love it. Gambit is really the only X-Man I’ve ever loved. »
