What Ever Happened To… the cast of Mallrats?

While ‘Clueless’ is often crowned the ultimate 90′s movie, ‘Mallrats’ (1995) runs a very close second.

After the success of slacker hit ‘Clerks’, writer-director Kevin Smith rounded up loads of ‘Dazed and Confused’ cast members, gave the lads over-sized t-shirts under plaid shirts, gave the girls ‘edgy’ dark lipstick and stuck them all in a shopping mall – the mecca of all 90′s teenage movies.

‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ is out on May 22nd in the UK & Ireland and May 23rd in the US.

Channing Tatum has confirmed that he’s had talks with X-Men producers about play Gambit.

Channing told MTV he’s long wanted to play the card-dealing mutant - “He’s just kind of suave… He’s the most un X-Men X-Man that’s ever been in X-Men. He’s a thief. He’s not even a hero. He’s kind of walking the line of grey…You never know it’s a weird industry. If the stars align, I would die to play it. I’m already working on the accent. It’s crappy at the moment.”

 Most of Paul’s role had been filmed and it was previously thought that the studio would use CGI or body-doubles to fill in any needed shots.  Well it seems Universal are going the body-double route but have also decided to keep things in the family.  Today they told fans that Paul’s brothers Caleb and Cody Walker have joined the film to help fill in some of Paul’s scenes.
