Deadline.com is reporting that X-Men: First Class could be six degrees away from any celebrity on the planet.

That is to say that Fox has offered actor Kevin Bacon the role of an unspecified villain in the piece. Reportedly the conversation has moved into the negotiation phase.

The movie is set to go into production soon under director Matthew Vaughn (Kick-Ass). Confirmed cast members include James McAvoy as Professor X, Michael Fassbender  as Magneto and Alice Eve as Emma Frost. Recently rumored but unconfirmed additions include Nicholas Hoult as Beast, Caleb Landry Jones as Banshee, Aaron Johnson as Cyclops and Lucas Till as Havok.

 Oh who give a crap....

Hmm, he'll probably end up playing some senator or something. How about Bolivar Trask?

Originally I wrote this off completely, but some of the casting has me intrigued. FOX still is in control so there's still huge risk, but it can't possibly be worse than X-Men 3... so at least there's that.

I give a crap. Despite Fox being in charge,I'd like to have a good movie out of this. The chance of the franchise returning to Marvel/Disney anytime in the near future is remote, so I want to enjoy some good movies from the current studio.

 @sportwarrior - IT can't possible be worse than X-Men 3? Really? Wolverine was worse than X-Men 3.  The chance that they will make better than the past two turds is remote.  

Sorry monkeyfoot but it is true.

Good suggestion, Pony--I'd love to see Kevin playing Bolivar Trask.

 i dont think wolverine was worse than the last stand.  If you have to add a subplot into the phoenix saga you have fucked up royally.  That story should have been a trilogy.  Why are they too stupid to do it right?  Oh we cant have the xmen go to space!  Space aliens and mutants?! Peoples heads would explode! Oh and Galactus would be much cooler as a cloud!  We're genius!

And the cast keeps coming. this flick will have so many actors the writers wont know how to fit everybody into it and instead of 2 hours we will get a 3 hour crapfest. I really hope the avengers doesn't fall into this type of trap

Calibur like most  I do not share your fears that the avengers movie will end up like X-men movies. Based on two things. One, so far the movies controlled by marvel have been decent and the second and main reason is becuse they own the material and fox doesn't. 

Its like real estate, most people who own there homes treat it with respect because they have a huge investment in the property (Marvel). Then you got your renters (aka FOX) who are only using the property for the time being and don't care about it for the long haul. Fox is the type of renter who paints the walls lime green, damages the appliances, and shits on the floor. So I doubt the Avengers will get shit on as its home to marvel.  

Pony I  can easily see Bacon as Trask and he would be someone Magneto/Xavier can battle together and who someone who can divde them when deciding how to deal with Mr.Trask.
