Daniel Henney becomes a mutant for X-Men

No more a secret: Daniel bagged a role in an
X-Men movie. Whoo hoo!

Korean-American Daniel Henney has hopped onto the mutant bandwagon and will be appearing in 20th Century Fox’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

The My Father and Seducing Mr. Perfect actor will portray Agent Zero, a member of the Weapon X program and an expert tracker with lethal marksman skills.

Suited up: Agent Zero of X-Men...does that mean we won't
be seeing much of Daniel's handsome mug in the movie?

The 29-year-old joins the stellar cast of Hugh Jackman,, Liev Schreiber, Ryan Reynolds, Lynn Collins and Dominic Monaghan. Jackman plays the titular character.

The flick, which is scheduled for worldwide release in May 2009, will be directed by Gavin Hood (Tsotsi, Rendition).

I wasn't interested much in the movie until I heard the news :) yay

Oh man I thought he wouldn't be doing such Hollywood films like this.. I had such high hopes. Oh well, it can't be helped. I guess it's tough for him to find a gig when he's not fluent in Korean. At least X-men will be worth watching because of Daniel.

I have high hopes of this movie... I wasn't interested in watching The Last Stand when it came out... This movie however has two of my favourite dreamboats: Ryan Reynolds and Daniel Henney! And I'm a total sucker for Hugh Jackman even though he's so furry as Wolverine...

@Linda: The movie Wolverine with Hugh Jackman.

Unless they re-design Agent Zero's costume, Henney's gorgeous face will be lost!

I'm a Marvel geek and a big fan of the Weapon X series. Specially love Agent Zero. The fact that Henney is the hottness is just a plus. Hahaha!

I have a feeling tho he'll get like two lines in this film. Zero isn't exactly the talker. 0.o

Now if they could only get Ryan Reynolds, Taylor Kitsch and Daniel Henney together in one frame I'd be more than happy. ^^

@lemonade lagoon: kewl then. Guess we'll all be anxiously waiting for the movie to be released to watch Henney in action. A few lines, you say? Ah, that's usually the case isn't it? :-)

i hope he'll have a few lines unlike Rebecca Romijin & Kelly Hu
