Nicholas Hoult Officially Signed On For First Class!

on Thursday, July 8, 2010

WOW! Wasn't expecting this one. Looks like Tony from "Skins" is gonna release the beast by playing, well....the younger Beast in "X-Men: First Class". Ben Walker had signed on, but was dropped. Don't know why. I'll find out. Then there was some news that Fox wanted Taylor Lautner to play the character, but I really don't think he'd be good as him. But now it seems that Hoult is locked for the role.
I'm really looking forward to seeing how he plays the younger role. Hoult seems to be doing pretty good after "Skins". He's went from "Clash Of The Titans: 2010" to signing onto "Mad Max: Fury Road" and now "X-Men: First Class". Well done sir!
Filming for the new prequel film begins this August in London.
