Men TV Series Gets Blink

The next confirmed character on FOX's still-untitled X-Men TV show to receive a Hollywood face is Clarice Fong, better known under her alias as Blink.

Chung, according to JoBlo, will play Blink, a "sardonic and spirited mutant with the power of teleportation".

Chung is the second series regular to sign onto the pilot.

Oh Look, Another City Passed on Hosting the 2024 Olympics
The host country for 2024 will be announced at the International Olympic Committee meetings in Lima, Peru, on September 13. The Hungarian capital's withdrawal leaves the race to stage the 2024 Games between Paris and Los Angeles .

As we reported a year ago, the untitled series follows two ordinary parents who discover their kids have mutant powers.

Regardless, Marvel and Fox are playing things close to the vest on this X-Men project from the minds of Matt Nix and Bryan Singer. Now it appears that Chung's Blink will not be connected to the Blink introduced in the cinematic X-Men universe - though there is always the possibility that could change as additional details emerge.

Clarice is described as sarcastic, high-spirited, and a bit of a tomboy. "As she adjusts to the new people and places that are suddenly 'home, ' she slowly [becomes] herself again". They will join an underground network of mutants and will learn to fight to survive. Her naturally strong exuberance has taken a hit after a sudden and traumatic upheaval of her life.

Jimmy Kimmel will not let Matt Damon come near Oscar's stage
ABC, which is the network airing the Oscars , will be live from the red carpet beginning an hour before the ceremony, at 7:00 p.m. In less than a week, Jimmy Kimmel will host what many anticipate to be the most political Academy Awards in recent memory.

News that Fox has cast Jamie Chung (Once Upon A Time, Gotham) to play the mutant Blink in the upcoming #XMen television series has given fans of the franchise a reason to rejoice.

Fox ordered the pilot in January, with Nix to serve as writer and showrunner, and executive produce alongside Singer and X-Men: Apocalypse producer Simon Kinberg.

Yet, despite her awesome powers, Blink was only present in the film's backdrop, becoming a casualty of the futuristic war after only uttering one line (two if you watch the Rogue Cut). In 2011, she voiced Aimi Yoshida in the video game X-Men: Destiny.
