Nothing I am writing now is confirmed, in fact, it could be all untrue, but that is the fun of cast speculation! It is a case of some sites getting info here and there from ‘sources’. The first X-Men: Origins: Wolverine casting news is for Gambit, the staff wielding dude who never quite made it into the X-Men trilogy. There were rumours a while back about Lost star Josh Holloway being approached for the role for X-Men 3, although that never happened. Instead it could be a rather unknown actor who goes by the name of Taylor Kitsch. He has a fairly small filmography that consists of The Covenant, Snakes on a Plane and John Tucker Must Die. He looks the part, so if this speculation turns out to be true I’d be relatively happy.
We heard the other day how The Blob will appear on screen as a man in a fat suit, and we may have that man. Kevin Durand. He is an amazing 6ft 6 and his nickname is ‘Tree’, so he is suitable in the height department. They may end up making him even taller, such as Juggernaut in X-Men 3, and The Blob is rumoured to have a similar sized role to Vinnie Jones meathead character.
