Is Bailey Chase in talks to play the role of Gambit in the upcoming X-Men Origins: Wolverine? He may very well be, according to the New Zealand Sunday Star-Times, who got the news from him in an article discussing his role on Saving Grace.
Chase revealed that he was in negotiations for a role in the film, but was cagey about the details. "It's very confidential and top-secret. I think they're casting under alias names but for now, he's called Mr Yellow."
Chase describes the character as "He's about 30 years old, a charming southern guy on the surface but he's got some ulterior motives going on underneath. By the end of the film, he's probably not going to be such a nice guy."
From that description, it sounds possible that "Mr. Yellow" could end up being Gambit, the Cajun thief turned member of the X-Men.
Chase is best known for his role on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, where he played the role of Graham, good friend to Buffy's boyfriend, Riley.
