Marsden appears on the cover of the October 2014 issue of Los Angeles Confidential magazine. He talks about acting, his role as Cyclops in X-Men and Beyond, and being cast as the pretty boy.
When I was younger, I was always going to be cast as the preppy, good-looking guy at school. It was a good thing when I was 19. That helped me get work, and within those opportunities, I tried to show that there was more ability…more talent. My main struggle was I never thought myself as the cool guy because I wasn’t that guy in high school…I see myself more as James Bond’s goofy younger brother, as opposed to James Bond.
