Tye Sheridan Will Be a 'Perfect' Young Cyclops, Says James Marsden!

Tye Sheridan Will Be a 'Perfect' Young Cyclops, Says James Marsden!

Tye Sheridan is dressy casual while attending The Hollywood Reporter & HFPA’s Next Gen Cocktail Party at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival on Friday (January 23) at Main & Sky Rooftop Lounge in Park City, Utah.

The event was filled with tons of young talent, including Brie Larson, Me & Earl & the Dying Girl co-stars Olivia Cooke and Thomas Mann, The Grand Budapest Hotel‘s Tony Revolori, The Diary of a Teenage Girl‘s Bel Powley, and Unexpected‘s Gail Bean.

It was just announced that Tye will be playing the role of young Cyclops in the upcoming movie X-Men: Apocalypse and the role’s older counterpart James Marsden has given him his blessing to play the part!

“I think he’s a wonderfully talented actor who blew me away in Mud and that movie, I’ve never seen a kid that young be that present and that powerful, so I think he’s a perfect fit and I congratulate him,” James told HitFix.
