Iceman Shawn Ashmore gets new movie role in Frozen; Cold enough for ya, kid?



Shawn Ashmore, best known for the X-Men movie trilogy, will next be seen starring in the upcoming motion picture Frozen, written and directed by Adam Green, set to come out early this year. The film depicts the events of three skiers that are stranded on a chairlift and forced to make life-or-death choices that prove more perilous than staying put and freezing to death. Shawn also recently finished filming, Bloodletting, a miniseries based on the award winning novel by Vincent Lam, Bloodletting & Miraculous Cures, that shot in Canada.

When he was 17, he won the role of “Jake” on Nickelodeon’s series Animorphs. Then director Bryan Singer chose Shawn to play Robert Bobby Drake/Iceman on 20th Century Fox’s feature film X-Men.

The film spawned a franchise and in 2004, Shawn received the MTV Movie Award “Breakthrough Male” for his role as Bobby Drake/Iceman in Fox’s blockbuster sequel X2: X-Men United. His role was greatly expanded in this sequel. In 2006, Shawn returned in the third installment, X-Men: The Last Stand.

Watch the trailer for Frozen.
