Tye Sheridan Gets James Marsden's Blessing to Play Cyclops!

Brie Larson, Tye Sheridan, and Olivia Cooke all walk the red carpet 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 young stars were joined by Olivia‘s Me & Earl & the Dying Girl co-star 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.
