Casting Update: X-Men: First Class

Jason Flemyng has joined the cast to play Azazel. For those who don’t know, Azazel is the father of Nightcrawler (whose mother is Mystique). Not sure how he’ll fit into the story, but at least for once they’ve cast someone that, timeline-wise, doesn’t raise a bunch of alarms. Thoughts?

    Flemyng doesn’t surprise me. He’s close friends with Matthew Vaughn and has been involved with just about every movie Vaughn has either directed or produced. Flemyng being cast as Nightcrawler’s dad… odd. I think this will be the equivalent of him being in Stardust; it’ll be a small role. I can only imagine that his scenes will be involved with Mystique’s, like flashbacks or something (she is Nightcrawler’s mom).

      Yeah, that’s what I figured. While I’m glad FOX finally cast someone at the right age, it’s still weird. But I wonder, since they cast Mystique as such a young woman, will it be weird to have them in scenes together? Stupid FOX – Mystique is 85!
