12.22.03 || Contributor: John
Apparently Shawn has finished filming 'The Underclassmen' and will be starting work on a new movie in
January. No title was given out for it, but perhaps it's the movie reported earlier "Moonlight Drive" with
Jared Padalecki and Joanna Gleason.
Shawn's Teen People Blurb
There's a small blurb on Shawn in the Dec/Jan issue of Teen People:
"What's with all the twin action? Once, when X-Men's Shawn Ashmore was into a girl, he sent his
twin bro over to gauge her interest before making his move."
We have a scan of it here.

where you can change scenes and they have closeups of Shawn on several of them.
Smallville Airdate Correction
It looks like Smallville will not be airing on the 26th as previously reported (TV Guide lists an
airing of 'Josie and the Pussycats' for that day). Kryptonsite.com has a tentative airdate of January
7, 2004 for the episode, which seems very likely.

Iceman KFC Toy

Apparently KFC had an X2 toy promo a while back and they offered an Bobby Drake/Iceman figure. The
figure stands on the ice block, and when you roll it backwards, ice "shards" (which are really cardboard)
Fiona has sent in a photo of the figure (which really does look like Shawn!) and you can view it

More on 'The Underclassman'
From the Hollywood Reporter:
Shawn Ashmore, best known as Iceman in the "X-Men" films, will star opposite Nick Cannon in Miramax
Films' "The Underclassman," which begins shooting in October in Los Angeles and Vancouver.
Nickelodeon veteran Cannon plays a detective who, with his schoolboy looks, goes undercover at an elite
private school and stumbles upon an international stolen-car ring led by one of his rivals at the school,
played by Ashmore. The investigation gets even more surprising when the detective uncovers the person who
has been using the students to steal.
Based on an idea by Cannon, "Underclassman" was written by "National Lampoon's Van Wilder" scribes
David Wagner and Brent Goldberg. Marcos Siega, a TV and music video veteran, directs.

Anime Insider Picks Shawn
08.19.03 || Contributor: Yoshi
If there was a live-action "Yu-Gi-Oh!" movie, who would 'Anime Insider' pick to play Joey? Who else but
Shawn! Here's what the August issue of the magazine has to say about why they want Shawn:
"This Animorphs and X-Men star's got the face to play pretty boy Joey. Plus Shawn's got
sweet down pat (and we all know Joey's a big softie deep down). The only irony will be seeing Iceman
whip out his Flame Swordsman."
