Hot on the heels of the casting of Richard E. Grant as a mad scientist type, James Mangold’s upcoming third “Wolverine” film has picked up yet another beloved British actor – Stephen Merchant.
No word on what role “The Office” co-creator and “Hello Ladies” star will take on in the film, but he’ll join not only Grant but Boyd Holbrook as the villain, Patrick Stewart as Professor X and Hugh Jackman as the titular X-Man.
Jackman says this will be his last go-round as the character which he began playing 17 years ago. David James Kelly is penning the script while Lauren Shuler Donner is producing. The film is slated to open March 3rd.
