Taylor Kitsch On Reprising GAMBIT & Channing Tatum's Interest In The Role
Kitsch played the Cajun mutant in the not exactly well received X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and while speaking to the Chicago Tribune he suggests that he might not be ready to hand over the playing cards to Channing Tatum just yet! Read on for more.
A while back, Magic Mike actor Channing Tatum threw his hat in the ring to take over the role of Gambit from Taylor Kitsch should the card-flinging mutant ever grace the screen again. Then more recently, X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner said that she'd love to get a Gambit movie up and running with Tatum in the title role. But what if the opportunity arose for Kitsch to play the character again? “I would under the right circumstances,” the actor told the Chicago Tribune while promoting Lone Survivor Foundation’s Concert for a Cause. “But if (Tatum) does it, good on him. He’ll kill it. It’s such a cool character. Whoever plays him will be a lucky guy. It is what is it, I’m not going to be like ‘Oh my God, why don’t I get to play him?’ If it’s meant to be, it’s meant to be. And if not, I’ll move on. If they cast (Tatum), I wish him nothing but the best. I hope he kicks the (crap) out of it.”. To be fair, Kitsch never really got much of a chance to show what he could do with such an underwritten take on Gambit, so I'd be okay with seeing him have another stab at it somewhere down the line. What about you guys? Would you mind Kitsch returning or would you prefer Tatum?
