Here I go, eating my words about going underground. A girl needs a break from bar studying, right? And I've been hassling Mike to blog and he refuses. That and he's been busy reading all of the Harry Potters for the first time. He's totally sucked into number 6, so much so that he stole it from me to read it. For shame!

Anyway, the other day I was looking on fandango dreaming about going to a movie instead of studying contracts. I saw they had a nice little feature about the top 50 most anticipated movies for 2009 (which btw most of them looked like crap). I was just scrolling through the pictures and short synopses when I got to X-Men: Wolverine and it mentioned that Taylor Kitsch was going to be Gambit in the movie.

I hurriedly exclaimed, "Riggins is going to be Gambit!"

Mike: "What? When?"

"In the new X-Men movie about Wolverine coming out this summer".

"Yeah, I dont know how I feel about that...Riggins?"

"Whatever, he's going to be awesome!" (I can't deny my love for Riggins)

"Gambit was a Cajun. He was also a self-proclaimed ladies man. I just can't see Riggins pulling that off"

"So not true! All he has to do is mumble and throw cards and be a gambler. And he liked Rogue, right? Cajun? What is a Cajun?"

"Gambit was from Louisiana and really proud of his heritage."

"No he was not! I remember because I was totally in love with cartoon Gambit"

"Gambit was my favorite too but I remember this correctly."

"Okay fine I'll wikipedia it. [Searching wikipedia] Uhh...."

"What does it say?"

"As the X-Men's self-described ladies man, Gambit has shown a more vulnerable side of himself over the years, especially when it comes to Rogue. Gambit remains fiercely proud of his Louisiana heritage, and speaks in a very thick, Cajun accent."

Mike then laughed. And I then laughed.


PS if you don't know who Riggins is, please please watch Friday Night Lights, the TV show. It's glorious.

Remember season 2 of FNL, "WWRD?" (what would riggins do?). yup. he's a ladies man. and i'd see ANY movie that he's in ... even if it was a really bad remake and costarred someone like Mariah Carey.

Yup ... I just said that.

My love for Riggins runs deep ... deep like a cajun accent.

I feel that my nerdiness has been vindicated by this post. Gambit was always my favorite growing up! Even animated he was so sexy. I am thrilled Riggins is going to play him.
