    This is shaping up to be a surprisingly strong ensemble. Jennifer Lawrence is very talented, as are Michael Fassbender, Aaron Johnson, James McAvoy, Kevin Bacon etc…

    Aaron Johnson lost his appeal to me when he married and just had a baby with a 45 year old (he is 20!!).

    Looks like a whole slew of lucky ducks get to be first degree with Kevin Bacon!!

    Kevin Bacon is a class act! awesome! he’s timeless yet underrated. One of the greatest actors who is to be respected as he ages. He’s so versatile!

  • It’s Havok, not Havoc.

    This is shaping up to be quite a cast!
