Hollywood actor Taylor Kitsch appeared as the character Gambit in the 2009 movie X-Men Origins: Wolverine and has previously stated that he would not return to the role. However, Taylor has now claimed that, if he got the call to reprise his role as Gambit, he would do it.
Kitsch explained to Den Of Geek, “I would, man. I know Hugh [Jackman]’s doing Wolverine soon, so I’m not planting a seed in any way, but if he called me and wanted me to do a cameo in it or something, I’d do it. It’s that simple. But I haven’t been approached by anyone.”
He added, “What’s been really flattering is that a lot of fans want to see it. And that’s the best compliment you can get, is that people want to see you again in that role. Or any role. And I loved playing him - he’s a suave motherfucker. He’s fun to play, man. So I’d love to do it. But I doubt it’ll happen.”
Taylor continued, “Maybe way down the road. Which is great, because I’m sure I’ll be a way different actor when I’m 40 or 45, and I can see myself playing him down the road, developing that. You never know.”
