1) Because the four returning were arguably the four main leads from the first movie? Not to mention, since we know there's a 10 year span between this and First Class - who knows what happened?
2) We've been told repeatedly the bulk of the story takes place in 1973, so that would mean the returning characters are probably playing roles maybe a little bigger than cameos but certainly not starring, lead character roles like they did in their original movies.
It's also already been said that the focus is still squarely on the First Class actors by many people from the production.
