January Jones Talks “X-Men: First Class”: “I feel like I’m a kid playing mutant.”
In a recent interview with the L.A. Times, the lovely and talented January Jones got a chance to let her inner geek spill out. Jones, who is playing Emma Frost in X-Men: First Class, spoke to Hero Complex about the shoot and her character. First of all, Emma’s costume will follow suit with the comics and be pretty revealing. “The costumes are insane..It’s a lot of very body-conscious stuff. If you look at the comic book, she’s barely dressed. She’s got quite the bod, which is very intimidating.” She also confirmed that Emma’s diamond form will be done with CGI. She than went on to talk about the parallels to Martin Luther King and Malcolm X that the film will get to exploit thanks to its ’60s setting However, the best part of the interview was when she talked about Emma’s psyche.
“Emma was a bespectacled, mousy child who had this power when she was young that she couldn’t quite harness, the telepathy, the mind-twisting stuff,” Jones said. “She had a falling out with her father and went her own direction.”
This is just getting more excited for Matthew Vaughn’s upcoming film, which stars James McAvoy as Professor X and Michael Fassbender as Eric Lenchner aka Magneto. The supporting cast is quite something, including Jones, Jennifer Lawrence (Winter’s Bone), Rose Byrne, Kevin Bacon, Oliver Platt, and Zoe Kravitz. The film opens on June 3rd.
