We reported a few weeks back that a young actor was taking on a beastly role in a new superhero film but it seems another actor will be playing the part. Variety is reporting that Caleb Landry Jones and Nicholas Hoult have signed on to X-Men: First Class.

Jones will portray Banshee in the film while Hoult will play Beast, the role that was previously reported to go to Benjamin Walker.

Matthew Vaughn is directing the film from a script by Jane Goldman. We'll be sure to keep you posted with any further casting news on X-Men: First Class as soon as we have more information.
