Default The Official Nicholas Hoult/Beast Thread

Caleb Landry Jones will play the Banshee in 20th Century Fox's origins pic "X-Men: First Class," marking the first time the mutant has been introduced to the bigscreen franchise.

And in a second key casting, Nicholas Hoult will play the Beast.

James MacAvoy and Michael Fassbender topline "First Class," directed by Matthew Vaughn.

Conceived by Bryan Singer and written by Jane Goldman, "First Class" introduces Charles Xavier (MacAvoy) and Erik Lensherr (Fassbender) as young men, when discovering their powers for the first time and before taking the names Professor X and Magneto, respectively.

Caleb stars in David Fincher's upcoming "The Social Network," from Sony, and Eli Roth's "The Last Exorcism," from Lionsgate. Previous credits include "No Country for Old Men" and CBS pilot "Gimme Shelter," from producer John Wells.

Fox declined comment.
