X-Men 2 Movie Cast Starts Cumming

Ethan Embry, the guy who couldn't hardly wait for Jennifer Love Hewitt in Can't Hardly Wait, won't be Nightcrawler after all, despite Internet reports. Turns out Ethan was "unavailable," according to a news report.

So the part of the blue dude with the tail has gone to Alan Cumming, who's been in lots of things. That includes Josie and the Pussycats, Spy Kids, and Goldeneye. And he was in Spice World, which I'm sure none of you will admit to seeing.

But this won't be the first two-dimensional character Cumming has brought to live-action—he was Gazoo in the live-action Flintstones sequel, Viva Rock Vegas. Now, sadly, Cumming will get typecast as short guys who can teleport.

In other X-casting, Pyro has been cast, but it's a newcomer, not the guy who did the fire thing in the classroom with Bobby and Rogue.

Everybody from the first movie has been announced as coming back except for Tyler Mane and Ray Park. In other words, they haven't said Sabertooth and Toad WON'T come back. In other words, I dunno.
