Alan Cumming - Alan Cumming Returning To X-men Movie Franchise

Actor Alan Cumming is reuniting with his former X-Men co-stars to reprise his role as mutant villain Nightcrawler in the upcoming movie sequel.

Original X-Men actors Halle Berry, Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart and Ian MCKellen have all signed on to join the new crop of stars from 2011 prequel X-Men: First Class in director Bryan Singer's forthcoming follow-up, and now X2's Cumming has agreed to go blue again as Kurt Wagner/Nightcrawler.

The casting news was revealed by fellow Scot James MCAvoy, who portrayed a younger version of Stewart's character Charles Xavier/Professor X in the 2011 film.

During a chat about the new X-Men: Days of Future Past film on Britain's Heat Radio, he said, "You got me, (Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender), Nicholas Hoult will be back...

"Patrick Stewart, Ian MCKellen, Halle Berry, Alan Cumming, Peter Dinklage I hear mentioned - I don't know if that's happening - 'Huge' Jackman is coming by, he's massive, seven (foot) five (inches tall)? and muscly."

The new installment of the comic book adaptation is due to be released in the summer of 2014.
