Sean Teale To Play A New Mutant In The FOX X-MEN Series
Deadline reports that actor Sean Teale has officially joined the FOX X-Men series.
Sean Teale (Reign, Incorporated) has joined the drama as a never-before-seen mutant named Marcos Diaz (aka Eclipse). A rebellious loner by nature, Eclipse has the power to “absorb and manipulate photons.”
The pilot, from writer Matt Nix (Burn Notice) and director Bryan Singer, follows two non-mutant parents who learn that their children possess mutant abilities; the discovery leads them to join up with an underground network of mutants to keep their family safe from their anti-mutant government.
Teale joins previously announced cast members Stephen Moyer as Reed, the father of the aforementioned mutant children; Jamie Chung as Clarice Fong/Blink; and Blair Redford as Sam, the leader of the underground network.
Showrunner Matt Nix recently talked about the still untitled FOX X-Men series.:
“Suffice it to say it’s a show that contains some characters that fans will be excited about. I can’t talk about specifics, but it’s not like there are no X-Men in it. It’s a story that definitely comes at the world of mutants from the side. One of the things that’s come out [publicly] is the idea of a family that discovers their kids are mutants and has to go on the run.
The movies and the comics have generally started with the X-Men and encountered the world outside from the perspective of the X-Men. This show flips that on its head, in the sense that it doesn’t exclusively take place inside the world of people who are already X-Men and know that world.”
It should be announced this spring if the FOX X-Men series. will be picked up for the autumn. Keep checking the SPLASH REPORT because we should know the name of the show pretty soon!
