Yes I can.
I feel like people give them too much credit but seriously, their star power didn't help First Class to sell. Actually the most well-known actors that appeared in First Class at that time were Hugh Jackman, Kevin Bacon and January Jones for her work in Mad Men. Maybe a First Class 3 film would sell more than First Class 1 but its not going to sell compare to a film featuring the OT cast.
And if could give the OT cast (except for Hugh Jackman) a break longer than 5 years, FOX could give the FC cast a long break too especially their characters that they are portraying are not that iconic compare to the OT cast are portraying.
