X-Men: First Class Casts it's First X-Man

According to Showbiz 411, The First actor cast in the role of one of Charles Xavier's students in the school for gifted youngsters is a stage actor named Benjamin Walker (Flags of Our Fathers) who is currently starring in the Public Theater’s 'Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson'.

Walker will play the role of Beast (A.K.A. Dr. Hank McCoy), which was previously played by Kelsey Grammer in the third X-Men film.

I've never really heard anything about Benjamin Walker until today but apparently he's 'the hottest newcomer in New York theater this season.'

  1. He looks to have the slightly unkempt pre-secondary mutation look down before he's even had a wardrobe fitting. Crazy.
