The mistake was made when a photo was posted of the “cast” and Joseph was in it because he happened to attend the table read.
“It was funny to see that unfold and to answer so many freaked-out phone calls,” Joseph told MTV.com. “I just did it as a favor to Bryan Singer and to Fox, coming in and reading. I met Bryan before, and I just felt like it would be a fun way to be involved in that world. I had no idea that [executive producer Lauren Shuler Donner] was going to take a photo and say, ‘Hey, this is the cast!’ It’s a great project, but obviously I’m busy. It was pretty funny to see all of the articles and then the retractions.”
Joseph is a big fan of the comics though. He added, “That’s why I wanted to at least go in and help out at the table read. But we’ll see what it will lead to.”
