Whooohoo!!!! Is this not the greatest thing ever?
Here's a link to Dom and Liev Schreiber lunching together; Liev has muttonchops for his role as Sabretooth. Dom plays a character called "Beak" who has electromagnetic powers. He may be one of the bad guys, but I don't know the series well enough.
I love it, because:
A) Ian's already a part of X-Men - althought probably not in this series
B) I remember seeing Shawn Ashmore as Iceman and thinking how Dom-like he looked - *L*! And now Dom's in the series.
C) Most importantly, Dom's in a big movie; I'm so happy for him. *S*
So, psyknife - excited? *G*
p.s. Here's the funniest version of the announcement: http://www.cinemablend.com/new/Dominic-Monaghan-Is-Wolverine-s-Electro-Man-7916.html
p.p.s. And I'm probably the last person to know this, but he has a lead in a movie (filming after "Wolverine") called "Pet", where he apparently keeps a woman captive under the animal hospital where he works (?!) but soon finds she's not who he thinks she is: http://www.reuters.com/article/peopleNews/idUSN1326621320080213
I'm feeling much better about Dom now. *G*
