In the comments for my last cast m3tallo asked me to do a few more and I said I would.

I wanted to introduce certain characters and set up the future time lines so here's the cast for



I know now a very original title but it's straight to the point.

All of the cast have been picked because I believe that all of these actors have shown roles or acting ability that would be ideal for the selected roles.

Sweet cats, dude! We have the same picks for Angel and X-23. The only ones i don't are you picks for Forge (too old, and Forge is Native American) and Domino (too young). But nice job!

Stewart is perfect for x23. No emotions at all.
RunDTC - 11/9/2012, 3:12 PM
for your descriptions, you need YOUR reason for casting them. not a Wikipedia bio.
ScarletSpeedster0 - 11/10/2012, 12:25 AM
@ RunDTC I gave the reason why I cast them all right up at the top

Pretty Nice!

MRBLUESKY@ said what i would have said about
FORGE & DOMINO.

Some of these are very well cast!
CABLE, APOCALYPSE, KITTY.

Appreciate the effort in the writing!

I dig it a whole lot. Mark Pellegrino deserves to finally play a big villain on the big screen he's done it perfectly many times on TV! I think you should've included why you think they're right for the roles instead of just what they've appeared in though. I'd like more of an X-Factor Forge though.

that pic of Jean Grey looks like Charlize Theron
Theunderdog - 11/13/2012, 2:40 AM

M3T4LL0 - 11/13/2012, 2:55 PM
Great Job buddy! Trejo as Forge is PERFECT! I also really like your apocalypse pick as well and Ryan would make a terrific Angel. Again well done and thanks for listening to my request. Much appreciated!
