I was just checking out the X-Men 3 page on imdb.com and it caught my eye that they have Beverley Mahood cast as Dazzler. Since I remember a few of us were talking about her a few weeks back, does anyone here know if this is the Canadian singer or another person with the same name?

ps. Juggernaut's in the movie? That's awesome!

Whoa-I just went to see her sing live this morning.

Beverley's also got herself a new gig.

FWIW, I think she'd make a good Dazzler.

It's the same one, I believe (calgarysun.com)


I've never heard of her til now. She looks like she could be a good Dazzler. It's probably just a mutant cameo though.

Juggernaut isn't just in the movie...he's Vinnie Jones, one BMF.

The casting for X3 looks pretty keen. Kelsey Grammer as Beast is an inspired choice, and Ben Foster should do a good job as Angel.



On the flip side, congrats to ABC for hiring Tim McGraw to tailor the lyrics to "I like it, I love it" for every halftime highlight show throughout the "Monday Night Football" season. Just last week, my buddy House and I were discussing Cosell's classic highlight narratives in the '70s, and how nobody had approached them since, and I told House, "Only one thing could ever come close, and I know it's a long shot, but what if ABC hired Tim McGraw to tailor the lyrics to 'I Like it, I Love It' for each week of NFL highlights throughout the season?" And wouldn't you know, it happened! See, dreams can come true. --- Bill Simmons, www.sportsguy.net

X-men 3 has a lot more going against it than for it right now.

No Bryan Singer.

No Tom DeSanto

Brett Ratner directing.

Rushed production/release schedule.

I tend to have faith that as long as they remain true to the source material (ala Spiderman and the first 2 X-Movies) they will have a hard time screwing the movie (and franchise) up. The classic X-Men stories are really timeless and could survive an average director. Remember, the director doesn't even cut and paste the movie together. Fox does, however, need to start inking these actors to multi-movie deals from Day One so we don't have to endure this re-sign or not to re-sign drama.

True to the source material? Hmm...


Spoiler Below: Highlight text to read
Judging from AICN script reports and the scenes that have been filmed, it appears that the newly-powered Jean Grey VAPORIZES Cyclops near the beginning of the movie.

I'm gonna have faith on this one. I didn't like the Brett Ratner choice but unless they put together a total shit movie I'm still gonna go see it. Like DrOp said it they don't stray from the original stories it can survive Ratner.

Well my point is that they are going to stray.

And that without Singer and DeSanto, and Tom Rothman in charge now they are going to flush it down the toilet and deliver a totally crap movie.

Well I did not see that spoiler before I posted last. That kinda changes my opinion.

Last report from the X3 camp claims that they're NOT using the script that AICN ripped apart.

It's still going to suck, though.< /nerd >

Sure they are probably going to make changes.

But from what I've heard they are filming right now, it doesn't sound like they made too many changes for the better. As in not making the changes from the biggest problems clarified in the AICN script report.

It sounds like this time around they are going more for a dumb Michael Bay type action movie rather than a great movie with action in it. Which is why Singer's movies were so exceptional.
