Shawn Ashmore On X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST & Working With Kevin Bacon On FIRST CLASS

Ashmore, who played Bobby Drake/Iceman in the X-Men trilogy, reiterates that he hasn't heard about returning to the role for Days Of Future Past. He also looks back on comparing notes with Kevin Bacon on First Class when they were shooting The Following.



Speaking with Huffington Post at the premiere of FOX's The Following, actor Shawn Ashmore discusses his interest in returning as Bobby Drake/Iceman in director Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days Of Future Past after playing the character in the first three films. We previously heard him say that he hasn't heard anything from Singer or the studio about potentially reprising the role, and it's still the case here. "Honestly, at this point I have no idea. What's exciting is Bryan Singer's back, which is amazing. He was amazing to work with. I would love to come back and play Bobby again. I played the part three times, I got to grow up playing that part, which is incredible. It's so rare. If it happens, i would love to play that part. The moving is happening, so I have to wait and see how it all comes together." With many actors from the original trilogy expected to reprise their roles (Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellan are set to return as Wolverine, Professor X and Magneto, respectively), it wouldn't be surprising to see Ashmore's Iceman return.

The actor also shares his thoughts on X-Men: First Class, which features his The Following co-star Kevin Bacon as the villainous Sebastian Shaw. He also looks back on comparing notes when they were working on The Following. "I loved 'First Class.' I thought Matthew Vaughn did a great job. I thought Kevin Bacon did a great job. We've had some 'X-Men' conversations. They shot some of 'First Class' down in Atlanta, which is where we shot the pilot, so we just kind of talked about that and the experience of making it," Ashmore said. "They're huge films. It's such an undertaking, so it's amazing to get stories from the movies you're not on. It's all very similar: the scheduling and the craziness and the special effects and 'Oh my god, that scene, it's 10 seconds in the movie, but it took five weeks to shoot.' Stuff like that."

Would you like to see Shawn Ashmore reprise his role as Iceman for a fourth time? Who else would you like to see from the original X-Men trilogy to appear in Days Of Future Past?

X-Men: Days Of Future Past stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Jennifer Lawrence, Hugh Jackman and Nicholas Hoult. The film is set to hit theaters July 18th, 2014. Additionally, The Wolverine is scheduled for a July 26th release, while Fantastic Four will arrive March 5th, 2015.
