More Mutants: X-men First Class casts ‘Beast’ ‘Banshee’ and ‘Havok’

The flood-gates have opened.  We have casting, recasting, rumours, and misdirection.







Caleb Landry Jones

Previously rumoured Caleb Landry Jones, has been confirmed as Banshee by  Previous credits include football television series, Friday Night Lights, and the award-winning No Country for Old Men.  He will be seen in The Last Exorcism  later this year.

Lucas Til

EW also announces that Lucas Til is in negotiations to play Havok.  Til stole tween hearts as Hannah Montana’s love interesting in the Hannah Montana Movie.  He also played the young Johnny Cash in Walk the Line.





Nicholas Hoult


Hank McCoy has been cast…again. Our Beast is Nicholas Hoult.  Hoult was last seen in the 2010 remake of Clash of the Titans (but I won’t hold that against him).  He also appeared along side Colin Firth in Tom Ford’s A Single Man.



Kevin Bacon



The plot details for X-men: First Class have been sketchy at best, but every superhero film needs  a baddie. Today’s newest Rumour?
Deadline is reporting Kevin Bacon is in talks to play an un-named antagonist.  Could this be one of the iconic villains of X-men lore, or a new character created by Singer, Vaughn, and the writing staff?  Who knows?



EW has warned us that all may not be what it seems.  The characters names may not necessarily be the ones that will appear in the film. Fox seems to be trying to stop leaks, and keep a few surprises for the theatre.  Rumours about Aaron Johnson and Taylor Lautner have been debunked…for now.
