'The Man Men' actress played a mutant shapeshifter called Emma Frost in 2011's 'X-Men: First Class'
January Jones has admitted she might not have a role in the new X-Men movie.
The Mad Men actress appeared as Emma Frost, a mutant who can turn herself into a diamond, in 2011’s X-Men: First Class. However, director Bryan Singer has yet to contact her about his follow-up film, which is due to begin shooting this April.
When asked about the sequel by Collider, she replied: “I don’t know that I’m in it, I don’t think Emma’s in this one. Well they haven’t told me if I am! I wouldn’t put it past them though – I got the script for the first one on the airplane on the way there.”
Discussing the new film’s set-up, Jones added: “It’s called Days Of Future Past I think, and I think it’s more about James [McAvoy] and Michael [Fassbender] and then Patrick [Stewart] and Ian [McKellen], and I think it’s gonna go back and forth with those so I don’t think Emma’s in those bits. I don’t know, I really don’t know.”
Bryan Singer has recently confirmed that Hugh Jackman‘s Wolverine will play a part in Days Of Future Past. Back in November, he made a more unexpected casting announcement on Twitter, revealing the film has roles for X-Men veterans Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen – as well as current stars James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender.
However, Patrick Stewart has since claimed “Bryan let the cat out of the bag on Twitter”. Speaking last month (December 2012), he said: “I know nothing about this project. [But] I’m hoping that might change in the future.”
