    James McAvoy: Professor X in 'X-Men First Class'!



    James McAvoy has nabbed the role of a young Charles Xavier, aka Professor X, in X-Men: First Class, out June 3, 2011.
    First Class will “chart the epic beginning of the X-Men saga. Before Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. Before they were archenemies, they were the closest of friends, working together, with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to stop the greatest threat the world has ever known. In the process, a rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto’s Brotherhood and Professor X’s X-Men.”
    Helming the X-Men prequel will be Matthew Vaughn (Kick-Ass, Layer Cake). Bryan Singer, who directed the first two X-Men movies and conceived the story for First Class, is producing and will kick off production this summer in London.
    FYI: Patrick Stewart played Professior X in the original X-Men trilogy.

    I like Jamie boy, he's one of my favorite Scots. He's best in period pieces though.

    He is. I think he's actually pretty attractive.

    I love Matthew Vaughn for introducing me to Charlie Cox in 'Stardust' and Daniel Craig in 'Layer Cake.' Can't wait to see what he does with this franchise and i'm glad he added James McAvoy to the cast

    I love Stardust, I've seen it more times than I should own up to.

    James is a heavy smoker and since I'm a hands person it bugs me to see his nicotine stained hands but you can't have it all and he comes across as a very loving husband and so far his acting hasn't let me down. He's very believable with the women he stars against such as Ikea Nightly, Ann Hathaway and Angelina Jolie - alot of guys aren't (such as Tom Cruise, Hayden Christensen, Orlando Bloom).

    McAvoy wouldn't have been the first person I thought of for the role of Professor X, but it's great casting. Hopefully, the film can make up for X-Men 3.
