Taylor Kitsch is open to do Gambit cameo in ‘The Wolverine’

If Hugh Jackman asks him, Taylor Kitsch says he’s ‘open’ to idea of bringing his “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” character back to the big screen.

The “John Carter” star spoke with Den of Geek while promoting his latest film “Battleship”, saying he’d like to return to the Gambit character.

“I would, man. I know Hugh [Jackman]’s doing Wolverine soon, so I’m not planting a seed in any way, but if he called me and wanted me to do a cameo in it or something, I’d do it”.

“X-Men” fans can’t get too excited as Kitsch says he hasn’t “been approached by anyone.”

Kitsch did acknowledge the incredible fan response and following Gambit which has developed.

“What’s been really flattering is that a lot of fans want to see it. And that’s the best compliment you can get, is that people want to see you again in that role. Or any role. And I loved playing him – he’s a suave mother***er. He’s fun to play, man. So I’d love to do it. But I doubt it’ll happen.”

While “The Wolverine” heads to Japan for production and a 2013 release date, Kitsch is hopeful he can portray Gambit again, even if it’s years and years down the road.

“Yeah, maybe way down the road. Which is great, because I’m sure I’ll be a way different actor when I’m 40 or 45, and I can see myself playing him down the road, developing that. You never know.”

“Battleship” comes to theaters on May 18, 2012.
