Gambit's Role in X2?

X2-Movie got an exclusive with actor James Bamford (A stunt acto

(4-26) EXCLUSIVE: James Bamford on his Gambit role in X2 - Robert had the opportunity to e-mail James Bamford (A stunt actor), who was hired for the cameo appearence of Gambit in X2. Latest reviews have stated that Gambit's cameo wasn't in the film, just a scene where Remy Lebeau aka Gambit's name shows up in the computer database when Mystique highlights it. Will the Gambit action cameo scene be cut? Is it still in? Who knows! Here's what Mr. Bamford had to say...

"I was given the part as Gambit by the director [Bryan Singer] basically for my look. I was working on the show as Wolverine's stunt double for rehearsals, and I was called in to be looked at for Gambit. I was on the set the next day shooting the scene. I could not continue to double Wolverine on film because of a rehearsal injury. The scene that I was involved in as Gambit took only one day to shoot. It was a very small part, a cameo. I did not do any screen test or audition, as I mentioned before, the director just looked at me and picked me. I have no contract for the next film and I am sure that they will re-cast the character w/ a better known actor. If the next one shoots in Vancouver again, there is a good chance that I will work on it though, in some other capacity. I would love to continue to play the role as I am an avid martial artist, one of my favorite weapons is the staff!!! I would have a lot of fun doing it, but it is most likely not in the cards though."

Lets hope we get to see his cameo on the DVD (If it isn't in the theatrical cut)! Click here to see a photo of the Gambit actor for X2 (Perfect, in my opinion!)
