‘Disenchanted’ Star James Marsden Says Fans Always Mistake Him for Another Actor


James Marsden has enjoyed a successful acting career, notching several beloved projects. But he’s only one of many conventionally handsome Hollywood actors, and sometimes they get confused for each other. In an interview a few years ago, Marsden revealed that fans often mistake him for another leading man. Some have even fantasized about this actor replacing Marsden in one of his signature roles.

Marsden began acting professionally in 1993 and spent the rest of the decade mostly making guest appearances on TV shows. But in 2000, he landed the role of Scott Summers, AKA Cyclops, in the X Men series. The character is a significant part of the original comics but plays a much smaller role in the movies.
