The cast of this movie is going to be ridiculously sexy. First James McAvoy and now Nicholas Hoult. I also heard Aaron Johnson will be playing Cyclops.

This casting on this movie has been pretty top, so far..not to mention extremely gorgeous! James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, and now ‘possibly’ Nick Hoult…filming hasn’t even started yet and I already want a ticket to the nearest cinema!

*On an entirely different note*: I hear they’re in the works on a film about the barefoot bandit. I really hope they consider Nicholas for the lead. He’s got my bid 100%…he’d be fantastic!
