'X-Men: Apocalypse' Has Got a New Nightcrawler, Can Get the Bulk Jar of Body Paint

February 18, 2015


Bryan Singer has found the latest young actor he'll slather in blue body paint. The director last night revealed on Instagram that he's cast The Road's Kodi Smit-McPhee as a young Nightcrawler in the upcoming superhero sequel X-Men: Apocalypse. The teleporting, elf-like, blue-skinned mutant was previously played by Alan Cumming in X2. It's not yet certain whether the azure-skinned Archangel--who typically figures heavily into the Apocalypse story--will appear in the new film, but it is confirmed that Smit-McPhee will be joining a cerulean cast that includes Jennifer Lawrence's Mystique, Nicholas Hoult's Beast, Tobias from Arrested Development, the Blue Man Group, an Avatar, Picasso's Old Guitarist, and Leo's frozen Titanic corpse.
