‘X-Force’ Creator Wants Jon Hamm as Cable

‘X-Force’ Creator Wants Jon Hamm as Cable

When X-Men: Apocalypse hits theaters this May, it will bring the current X-Men trilogy to a close, following 2011's X-Men: First Class and 2014's X-Men: Days of Future Past. Before that movie hits theaters, the spinoff Deadpool will arrive in February, with Gambit also slated to start production this spring. Movies such as X-Force and The New Mutants are also in various stages of development. There are still many characters from the comic books that haven't debuted on the big screen yet, one of which is the beloved Cable. Rob Liefeld recently took to his Twitter page over the weekend, revealing his "dream pick" for Cable is none other than Mad Men star Jon Hamm.

Last month, artist Greg Semkow tweeted out artwork based on his friend Jeff Wadlow's X-Force screenplay. The artwork featured Cable, Cyclops' son who is endowed with telepathy powers, Domino, an expert marksman with enhanced reflexes, making him an expert in hand-to-hand combat, Warpath, a Native American who has regenerative healing abilities and super strength and Cannonball, who can create force fields and flies with jet propulsion. There is also a woman wearing a hoodie who isn't a known member of the X-Force team, but some have speculated she may be Anna Paquin's Rogue.

Jon Hamm Joins Edgar Wright's ‘Baby Driver’

Jon Hamm Joins Edgar Wright's ‘Baby Driver’

Just weeks after winning his first Emmy Award for the final season of Mad Men, Jon Hamm has signed on to star in writer-director Edgar Wright's new action-comedy Baby Driver. Variety reports that Jamie Foxx has also joined the cast, which includes Ansel Elgort and Lily James. No details were given for Jon Hamm and Jamie Foxx's characters at this time.

The story centers on a young getaway driver, dubbed "Baby" due to his boyish looks, who uses his own "personal soundtrack" as he strives to become the best in this illicit business. His life is turned upside down when he's coerced into working for a mafia boss, and, after a heist goes bad, he is forced to go on the run, putting his life on the line. The story is partially inspired by the music video for Mint Royale's Blue Song. Edgar Wright directed the video in 2003, one year before his breakout hit Shaun of the Dead hit theaters.
