In yet another odd casting addition to Wolverine 3, Variety reports that ER alumni Eriq La Salle has joined the film in another unnamed role.
Considering his background playing a doctor it’s not hard to imagine him being able to learn a bunch of terminology to play a tech genius like Forge, a brilliant mutant inventor that just happens to be able to build anything including a working time machine.
Forge just also happens to be a member of the X-Force.
Wolverine 3 is looking like a very male-centric cast includes Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Boyd Holbrook, Richard E. Grant and Stephen Merchant. A really odd contrast to The Wolverine, which boasted three major female roles.
Production begins very soon with it’s release date set for March 3rd, 2017.
