It’s very exciting for me, but everything is a double edged sword because I was playing J.A.R.V.I.S. for years. My job was, I would turn up in a recording studio for 45 minutes, do all my stuff. And then they’d give me a huge bag of cash, and then I’d go home! But it turns out they found me out, and now they actually want me to do something!

Gambit’s really [the] only X-Men that I’ve ever loved. I’ve loved them all, they’re all great, [but] I don’t know, I guess just being from down south—my dad’s from Louisiana and I’m from Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida,” he explained. “I just related to him. He’s just kind of a suave; he’s the most un-X-Men X-Man who’s ever been in X-Men, other than maybe Wolverine. He’s kind of like the anti-hero; he’s a thief. He’s not even like a hero, he’s kind of walking the line of grey. He loves women and drinking and smoking, he’s just a cool guy that happens to have a good moral center. I hope it does [come together]. You never know, it’s a weird industry. If the stars align, I would play it. I’m already working on the accent.
—Channing Tatum on dying to play Gambit.
