What if you’re a famous actor/comedian who wants a role in an upcoming blockbuster comic book movie? Well, you could have your agent contact the studio behind the movie or could leak your interest to one of the Hollywood entertainment magazines. Or you could do what Aziz Ansari has done and express your interest directly to the director of the movie via Twitter.
While Aziz Ansari has had a number of roles in television and film, he is best known for playing Tom Haverford on NBC’s Parks and Recreation. Earlier today, Aziz Ansari reached out to X-Men: Days Of Future Past director Bryan Singer via Twitter. Aziz Ansari tweeted, “@BryanSinger is there any kind of new Indian dude/mutant I can play in X-Men: Days of Future Past?”
Director Bryan Singer soon tweeted back, “@azizansari:@BryanSinger any kind of new Indian dude/mutant I can play in Days of Future Past?” In the words of Spock: I shall consider it.”
Could Aziz Ansari actually land a role in X-Men: Days Of Future Past via Twitter? There is a X-Men of Indian descent named Neal Shaara, who also goes by the codename Thunderbird (not to be confused with the earlier Native American Thunderbird). Now, all Bryan Singer has to do is figure out how to incorporate this version of Thunderbird into the X-Men: Days of Future Past storyline. Thunderbird is a pyrokinetic, whose origin does tie into the Prime Sentinels.
