Nicholas Hoult is young Beast in X-Men: First Class

Sorry Taylor Lautner! Deadline are reporting that About A Boy star Nicholas Hoult has been cast as Beast in Matthew Vaughn‘s upcoming X-Men: First Class.

Hoult, and perhaps Johnson, join James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender and Alice Eve in the superhero prequel (as Professor X, Magneto and Emma Frost respectively).
