Will.i.am is currently in the UK promoting his latest musical venture, and while there he spoke to BBC’s Newsbeat about his role in X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
Is it true that you’ve got a part in the new X-Men movie?
I did a good job when I read for the part. I feel real confident about my role and my execution on my role in the movie. I’m Wolverine’s best friend Logan in the movie. I love it. That’s my favourite movie out of all of them. Spider-Man’s cool but I like X-Men. Matrix, Lord of the Rings, X-Men – that order.
We will be able to see if casting a hip hop artist was a good decision next May, or maybe even earlier if he pops up an a trailer.
