Production on director Matthew Vaughn‘s new comic book movie X-Men: First Class is getting ready to begin later this month, so the final castings should be coming through very soon. A new name now being added to the mix is Rose Byrne, who is currently in negotiations on a deal that would see her joining the cast that already features James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, and Kevin Bacon.

Byrne would be playing Moira MacTaggert, a scientist and expert on genetic mutations who finds herself in a romance with McAvoy’s character, a young Professor Xavier. Not much is known about the film’s storyline, but we do know it will focus strongly on the young Professor X and Magneto (Fassbender), when they had a close bond with each other before differences in opinion ultimately saw them traveling much different paths.

First up comes a big confirmation. About a week ago came word that the great Kevin Bacon was in talks to take on the role of an unknown villain in the movie. Bacon has been officially confirmed for the role, though it is still unknown what villain he might play. Your guesses are welcome!

The cast for Matthew Vaughn‘s adaptation of the comic book series X-Men: First Class has been moving at a furious pace lately, with new announcements and rumors popping up left and right.

Things began with a couple of big bangs with the announcements that James McAvoy would be playing a young Professor Xavier and Michael Fassbender would be playing a young Magneto.

After that, casting moved on to the actors who would be taking on youthful versions of many popular X-Men characters. We first heard that Benjamin Walker would be playing Beast in the movie, but that has since changed when he decided it would be better to stick with playing Andrew Jackson on Broadway. Interesting choice, no doubt. It has since been revealed that Nicholas Hoult would be taking his place in the role. Hoult has appeared in movies like About a Boy, Clash of the Titans, and the upcoming Mad Max: Fury Road.
