Mysterious forces are at play behind the scenes of the £80million X-Men: First Class movie with one of the main actors being cast, contracted - and then dropped.

Benjamin Walker, a gifted American stage actor, thought he'd achieved his big break into movies when he was chosen to play comic book character Beast opposite James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender in the prequel to all the X-Men films, when the characters are in their late teens and early 20s.

'Fox absolutely loved him, booked him and the next minute they're saying they don't want him. It was bizarre because they'd signed a deal on him,' a source intimately involved in the situation told me from Los Angeles yesterday.

The Fox studio screened-tested three other potential Beast actors at Pinewood yesterday, but I'm told they didn't seem right for the role.

Strangest thing of all is that late last night, I started hearing that Fox might end up re-offering Walker his Beast role back!

Hopefully they re-offer him the role, because I'm convinced that he'll do great as Hank.

The article does say they've re-offered him the role, but it doesn't say whether he's accepted.

Ben Walker Chooses Broadway Over X Men: Final Stand
By: Roger Friedman in Celebrity, Movies
July 2nd, 2010 at 11:52 PM EDT

With the uncertainty surrounding 20th Century Fox’s casting choices for “X Men First Class,” Benjamin Walker has ankled the project.

Walker is negotiating a deal instead to reprise his starring role on Broadway in “Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson.” The emo-pop musical was a smash hit off Broadway with Walker last season.

The whole “X Men”-”Andrew Jackson” seesaw has been going on for some time. Walker had a signed deal to play Beast in “First Class.” But lately, with the success of “Twilight,” studio execs at Fox have been obsessed with making the “X Men” X boys.

Suddenly, Fox is nervous because they’ve had some failures at the box office. “Knight and Day,” “The A Team,” and “Marmaduke” almost reverses their success with “Avatar.” Getting “X Men: First Class” right is suddenly more important than ever, I am told.

So far, still, James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender remain with the film. They’re the “senior” cast, which is just hilarious. Look for a lot of different Taylor Lautners to assume the other roles. Fox, I’m told, even checked Lautner’s availability.

For Walker and the producers of “Andrew Jackson” this is all good news. Walker will undoubtedly get a Tony nomination next spring, and “Andrew Jackson” has the potential to become a “American Idiot” type hit.

Again,....


Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:


What a shame about Walker...

Ok, I think they're trying to do what I've been saying by getting some more recognizable faces to show up in these movies and sell tickets. They need to be careful not too pass up on great actors in the attempt to do so. I'd rather take a great X-Men that underperformed than another mediocre one that was a hit.

So fox is trying to make first class into Twilight? I knew I shouldn't have had a glimmer of hope for this film.

Having enjoyed most or even parts of all four X-Men films, I've always semi-defended and even praised Fox in the past. I know, a true fanboy rarity... but even I can't defend this news. I thought Tom Rothman was promoted and his hands are off projects now??? Twilight?!?!? If Fox loses guys like me, they've truly lost period.

People really take what some showbiz journalist says seriously don't they? The guy said Fox are hoping to make the X-Men 'x-boys' which we've known for ages because its a prequel and all the X-Men will be teenagers. He continues to say McAvoy and Fassbender are the 'seniors' which we've known all along as well.

He just added some Twilight spin to jazz it up a bit because of the young teen X-Men thing, and he got a reaction.

'OMGZ not Twlightz FoX Scks!!!'

This is the problem I have with rumors. Instead of waiting to find out who is cast in a certain role, some site has to get "the scoop" and post something ahead of its time.

How do we know Ben Walker was ever even Beast in the first place? Because some site told us?

I'm tired of rumors. They're annoying, because then people just get worked up over nonsense, like now. I'll wait for official announcements. Until then I'm keeping my distance.

For everyone's information Roger Friedman, the guy who wrote the article above, was fired by Fox last year for reviewing the leaked copy of Wolverine.
