X-Men 4 vs Lost? Dr Who vs Heroes?

News from both the small and big screens...

Josh Holloway (who plays Sawyer in Lost) is being strongly tipped to play Gambit in the next X-Men film. He was originalyl due to take up the role in X3 but couldn't because of TV commitments. The X-Men producers liked Holloway so much they scrapped plans for Gambit to appear in X3 as he couldn't play them but things are looking up for the next installment. Holloway's inclusion could prove a good move too as the X-Men rooster is changing a fair bit from the earlier films as several actors - most notably Hugh Jackman, Halle Berry, and Ian McKellen (ok, so not an X-Men but still a very important character as Magneto) - will not be returning for the fourth installment. I'm looking forward to seeing the final line-up for this one. Hopefully they'll manage to keep the Beast, Colossus and maybe try and lure Nightcrawler back. Without Jean Grey or Storm they'll be needing higher profile female characters too - maybe Shadowcat and Rogue will get bigger parts. Maybe some new female X-Men will appear. But who? They've already used Jubilee and Psylocke in other roles in the films. Maybe Dazzler (I was always a Dazzler fan). Who would you like to see?

Next story is that Christopher Eccleston is set to return to the small screen in another 'genre' role. He may have left the Tardis and Time Travelling behind him but he's now developing superpowers all of his own and joining the cast of the smash-hit US superhero series 'Heroes'. No news as to who he'll be playing but apparently the smart money is on Syler - the shows mystery serial killer who has yet to actually be seen.
