Jamie Chung to Play Blink in FOX's 'X-Men' Pilot

The 'Gotham' actress is set to portray a female mutant who was previously played by Fan Bingbing in 'X-Men: Days of Future Past'.

AceShowbiz - FOX has found its Blink in Jamie Chung for an untitled "X-Men" pilot which will be directed by Bryan Singer. The actress who played Valerie Vale in "Gotham" and voiced Go Go in "Big Hero 6" is set to portray Clarice Fong, the female mutant who possesses the power of teleportation.

The character was previously played by Fan Bingbing in "X-Men: Days of Future Past". The TV version is described as "sarcastic, lively and a bit of a tomboy. Her naturally strong exuberance has taken a hit after a sudden and traumatic upheaval of her life. As she adjusts to the new people and places that are suddenly 'home,' she is slowly becoming herself again."

The show will revolve around two ordinary parents who discover their children possess mutant powers. Forced to go on the run from a hostile government, the family joins up with an underground network of mutants and must fight to survive.

Jamie Chung joins Blair Redford ("Switched at Birth") who will play another mutant, Sam, the strong-headed leader of the underground network.
