Coby Bell has been cast in a co-starring role in Fox's untitled X-Men live-action series, according to Deadline. Bell is reportedly playing Jace Turner, "a weathered man who quietly wrestles with the moral ambiguities of a job that regularly requires cold-blooded, calculating efficiency on a day-to-day basis." Based on the name, this would be a new character not originating from comic books.
Bell is best known for playing Jason Pitts in the CW/BET comedy The Game, and also played a major role in USA's long-running Burn Notice - which was created by this X-Men series' showrunner, Matt Nix.
If this report proves accurate, Bell joins the previously cast Stephen Moyer, Amy Acker, Natalie Alyn Lind, Percy Hynes White, Emma Dumont, Sean Teal, Blair Redford, and Jamie Chung. Dumont and Chung have been cast as Polaris and Blink, respectively, with the other cast members not known to be based on any original comic book characters.
No production timeline has been given for Fox's mutant drama.
