Gotham actress Jamie Chung has joined the cast of Fox's X-Men pilot from Matt Nix and Bryan Singer. She will star as the mutant Blink, a popular character from the comics with the power of teleportation.
Chung's character, who's real name is Clarice Fong, is described as sarcastic, lively and a bit of a tomboy. Her naturally strong exuberance has taken a hit after a sudden and traumatic upheaval of her life. As she adjusts to the new people and places that are suddenly “home,” she is slowly becoming herself again.
The untitled pilot is a rather hot project over at Fox. Matt Nix, who wrote the pilot, will also serve as an executive producer alongside Lauren Shuler Donner, Simon Kinberg, Jeph Loeb, Jim Chory and Bryan Singer, who is on board to direct the pilot.
The pilot from 20th Century Fox TV and Marvel Television will focus on two ordinary parents who discover their children possess mutant powers. Forced to go on the run from a hostile government, the family joins up with an underground network of mutants and must fight to survive.
Chung is the second series regular to sign onto the pilot. She joins actor Blair Redford who has been cast as Sam, the strong-headed mutant leader of the underground network.
Aside from her recent role on Gotham, where she portrayed reporter Valerie Vale, Chung also portrayed Mulan in an ongoing part on ABC’s Once Upon A Time, and will next be seen in the upcoming Hulu series Casual.
