Inside the issue, the 20-year-old actor opens up about having Havok’s super powers, his dream of becoming a real action figure and his new production company.
On being Cyclops brother: “I definitely remember wanting to be Wolverine, but Havok is a great consolation prize. I can shoot energy beams out of my entire body, and I’m the brother of Cyclops. Havok has always historically been the brother with more potential, bu because he has less control over his powers, he has always been secluded and separated.”
On becoming a real video game character: “I’ve had two goals in my life: one was to someday be an action figure, and the other one was to be in a video game, and one of those was completed with Hannah Montana. They came out with this Ken Doll of me and this crazy HM video game. (In the game) there was this guy on the cover, wearing my clothes and I was like, ‘That’s me?!’ And I just went ahead and bought it because I thought, ‘I have to check this out,’ and there was this 35-year-old dude with a much higher voice than me doing my voice and I was like, ‘that is not me!’ X-Men is going to be my legitimate shot at getting it right.”
On loving producing more than acting: “It’s called Grindfest, and the name suggest that we like to have fun…I like producing, or being a very creative producer, rather, where I can get a taste of what it’s like to be director without having to have all the responsibility fall on my shoulders. From the script up until seeing the final product — it’s like watching a child growing up.”
X-Men First Class opens in theaters on June 3rd.
