In even more “X-Men: First Class” casting news, it looks like Kevin Bacon may be joining the cast as an unnamed villain, along with Lucas Till as Havok.
According to Deadline, Kevin Bacon is in final talks to play an unidentified villain in the film, who, according to rumor, will pose a threat to the X-Men and their nemesis Magneto. This news is hot on the heels of the casting of Caleb Landry Jones and Nicholas Hoult as Banshee and Beast, respectively.
Also coming down the pike are reports from Entertainment Weekly that Hannah Montana: The Movie star Lucas Till will be playing Havok in the film.
Interestingly, the EW report also seems to debunk the casting of Aaron Johnson as Cyclops, stating that while the actor was seen with director Matthew Vaughn, the two were not in discussions relating to any part in the film. The article also states, “Still, my sources tell me to keep in mind that these parts may not be the actual characters in the movie. Instead, this could be part of a misdirection campaign to keep some surprises from X-Men fans.”
So what do you think? What does it all mean? Will Havok, Banshee, and Emma Frost be in the film at all?
