Jamie Chung Joins Fox's Untitled X-Men Pilot as Blink

Jamie Chung Joins Fox's Untitled X-Men Pilot as Blink

Fox's "X-Men" TV pilot is taking shape, with Jamie Chung joining the cast as Blink, a mutant with the power to teleport. Jamie Chung joins Blaire Redford's Sam as mutants in that network.

The pilot from 20th Century Fox TV and Marvel Television will focus on two ordinary parents who discover their children possess mutant powers.

The Hollywood Reporter revealed last month that Bryan Singer himself is set to direct the pilot epiosde. However, Blink's elevation to regular status in the upcoming series hints that this upcoming X-Men show might have its sights on telling a fairly unconventional mutant story, not unlike FX's current X-Men series, Legion.

Debuting in 1994's Uncanny X-Men, Blink was most recently played by actress Bingbing Fan in 2014's X-Men Days of Future Past - which marked the character's first live action debut.




"Clarice's naturally strong exuberance has taken a hit after a sudden and traumatic upheaval of her life", the press release tells us. A mutant with the ability of teleportation, the Blink introduced in the series will be looking to find herself again as she adjusts to her new normal. Fans may recall that Katrina Florece (X-Men), Kea Wong (X2), and Lana Condor (X-Men: Apocalypse) all played Jubilee on screen. Forced to go on the run from a hostile government, the family joins up with an underground network of mutants who must fight to survive. She is now playing another comic book character, Valerie Vale, on Batman's prequel Gotham.

You might remember Chung from her humble beginnings on MTV's Real World or her stint on Once Upon a Time as Mulan.

It will reportedly exist in the same universe as the X-Men film franchise, which Bryan Singer has also had a large helping hand in.
