According to this article on the slumping movie business, "aside from "Mission Impossible," none of these movies [in a list of sequels including Superman Returns, Mission Impossible 3, and X-Men 3] can be considered sure things."

Um, HELLO, Robert Walberg?!? Are you blind to the undercurrents of pop culture society?! Tom Cruise = crazy nutjob even wackier than Wacko Jacko according to numerous websites that list such things. MI3 is far from a sure thing.

And X-Men 3 = NOT a sure thing?! What are you smoking?! Sure, Gambit (that spicy Cajun -- and yes, comic characters can be hot) might not be in it, but we all know which summer blockbuster I'll be heading to the theaters for...and here's a hint: it's not one that stars a maniacal couch-jumper.

When I watched the X-Men cartoon (which, yes, I grew up watching) I had a total love-crush on Gambit/Rogue. I soooo wanted them to be able to get together. I watched religiously just for a glimpse at where their doomed relationship was headed. Sigh...

Oh yeah, and two words:
Hugh Jackman

ME TOO!!! That cartoon got me out of bed bright and early in the morning. Gambit. was. so. hot. Okay, I'll stop typing like some silly valley chick now. Suffice to say that Gambit needs to be in the next one, ma petite.

Who would you be satisfied with playing Gambit, though? Matthew McConoghay (however you spell it)? Kelsey Grammar as Beast is inspired casting, though.

I like James Marsters for Gambit. (The bleached blonde guy on the TV version of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer.") Here's his link on IMDB:

Even though he's a little old, he's also a LOT hot.

Marsters would distract me cuz I would always expect him to bite someone....meh, who cares as long as it doesn't suck
