More X-MEN: FIRST CLASS Movie Characters Revealed and Singer Confirms he wanted Taylor Lautner
According to the good folks over at ComicBookMovie there are a few more characters for Matthew Vaughn's X-Men: First Class that have been revealed.
Apparently Screen Terrier, who is in charge of casting the movie, held several screen tests over the weekend to cast actors for the following characters: Avalanche, Cyclops, Scalphunter, Angel, Prism and Ramrod.
Among the actors that auditioned we have: Jason Behr, Andrew Francis, Boyd Holbrook, Patrick J. Adams, Jonas Armstrong, Jamie Dornan and Tom Parker.
So does this mean that Aaron Johnson hasn't officially ben cast as Cyclops yet? If they are still looking to cast the role I guess not.
It was also confirmed by producer Bryan Signer recently that they actually really wanted Taylor Lautner to be in the movie! Fortunately for us his schedule wont allow him to do the movie. Singer said,
I wanted Taylor [Lautner] to do it, I really did. He's doing a movie in Pittsburgh called Abduction and then he's got the next Twilight movie. We talked about it a lot, he is a friend, and I really wanted to make it work. It just doesn't look like it's possible to do it.
Well, I gotta be honest... I'm really happy this casting choice didn't work out. How about you?
This movie is going to have a ton of characters from the X-Men universe! I'm really looking forward to seeing what Singer and Vaughn have planned for this film.
