There were rumours a while back that New Zealand actor Aaron Jeffrey could be up for a role in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, however nothing was ever confirmed, until now. The Daily Telegraphy confirm that Aaron does have a small part in the film, and if the past rumours were true then Wolverine could have himself a brother! It is currently unknown what role his brother will play in the film, or even if the whole Wolverine family will appear. This is speculation purely on my part, but with Sabretooth being the bad guy and all, wouldn’t it really piss Wolverine off if one of his family members were killed? That just wishful thinking by me, so don’t take it with any grain of salt. When I say ‘wishful thinking’ I’m not a psychopath who enjoys people getting killed on-screen, I just think it would serve the story well and would give Wolverine an extra reason to stab Sabretooth in the chest the next time they meet.
Other Wolverine news comes from Seouldelight who have a small interview with recently cast Daniel Henney. He will be playing the role of Agent Zero, and they asked him why he took the part.
Q: Why did you choose X-men Origins as your film debut in America?
A:“Although I received many offers from Hollywood in the past, they were usually for stereotypical, hackneyed Oriental roles that Western audiences are used to. However, the advantage of being a native English speaker and having a westernized physique can be utilized to play a different, more original role not given to other Asian actors; therefore, breaking the barrier of the stereotypical oriental character. The character in “X-men Origins” fulfilled my expectations, which helped me decide to play a role in this film.”
