OK, now the full X-Men team:

This is the best I could come up with for an ideal X-Men cast (for a TV show, since that's the best format for it, as if any of these stars would do TV... maybe an HBO series or miniseries?). The only trouble I can see is that Patrick Wilson is much, much younger than Julianne Moore, but still, this lineup in the late 90's would've been fab:

Patrick Stewart as Charles Xavier aka Professor X
Ian McKellen as Eric Lensherr aka Magneto
Hugh Jackman as Logan aka Wolverine
Patrick Wilson as Scott Summers aka Cyclops
Julianne Moore as Jean Grey aka Phoenix
Angela Bassett as Ororo Munroe aka Storm
Alan Cumming as Kurt Wagner aka Nightcrawler
Jude Law as Warren Worthington III aka Angel
Kirsten Dunst as Dazzler
Brad Pitt as Gambit
Angelina Jolie as Rogue

...with special guest appearances by Michelle Pfeiffer as Emma Frost aka the White Queen, and Tom Cruise as Mr. Sinister.

This is my final word on this topic... because I don't think this can be topped. The ULTIMATE X-Men cast.... a dream.

Sorry, but Famke Janssen IS Jean Grey, and I dare you to say otherwise! JuliAnne wouldn't kick half the ass Famke did.

You dare me to say otherwise? "Otherwise." There, I said it. But seriously, Famke Jenssen was good... it's just that she's not JULIANNE. In a totally different X-Men film made 10 years ago, Julianne would've been perfect.

Jenssen's Jean Grey was definitely one of the better realized characters, though, I'll give you that. Much better than, say, Halle Berry's Storm (sigh).
