Jamie Chung has been cast on the upcoming X-Men Pilot on Fox as a series regular.

The untitled pilot is from Matt Nix and set to be directed by Bryan Singer and follows 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.

Chung will play the sarcastic and lively Clarice Fong aka Blink, an established character from the comics with the power of teleportation. Clarice’s 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’, Clarice is slowly becoming herself again.

The character of Blink was most recently seen on screen in X:Men Days of Future Past.
