| Filed under: Film Flickers

Things are speeding up now in casting news. Must mean production is starting up soon!

Fox announced today another new addition to the X-Men: First Class flick - Nicholas Hoult as Beast!

You remember him! He was the little boy Hugh Grant adopted in About A Boy. And of course, you Brits know him from Skins!

Solid choice we think.

Thoughts?

    YAY! I loveeee him! Also in A Single Man. SUPER AWESOME!



  2. 2

    The Gayest X-Men ever!!!!!



  3. 3

    Noooooooo! He needs a role that will show off his sexy face/bod!



  4. 4

    I'm watching 'A Single Man' right now, second time today, and he looks like the blonde student with the 'Beatles' hair cut. Is that him? Great, depressing, sad, beautiful movie by the way. Charlie and George.



  5. 5

    Tony!!!



  6. 6

    Wasnt Kelsey Grammar the last Beast? He was awesome!



  7. 7

    i really like him in both Skins and A Single Man, but shouldn't Beast be a little more muscular, even as a youngin?



  8. 8

    Way too skinny for beast… He needs to gain some weight!



  9. 9

    This movie is already sounding like a hot busted mess. That little poufster is being cast as Beast? I wonder if its going to be revealed that Henry McCoy had an eating disorder and a case of gay face as young man. EPIC FAIL!



  10. 10

    I love this new trend of taking very masculine and muscular Super heroes and casting them with Twinks that are barely even androgenous. will this X-Men be titled Xth Men do Fashion Week!



  11. 11

    Yeah HE has a gay face!!!!!



  12. 12

    wow FAIL
    no one will see this movie now
    NEWS FLASH tween girls dont watch xmen no mater how many pretty boys you put in it



  13. 13

    He's cool.. He looks really thin here don't you think?



  14. 14

    The Beast isn't some skinny, lanky, feminine pansy. Horrible casting. Publish my comment this time please. It's alright to call females sluts, whores, and post shirtless pictures of underage boys, but I can't call someone a lanky, feminine, pansy?



  15. 15

    In about a boy he was not adopted you moron! haha



  16. 16

    You probably think he is a solid choice because you think he is cute. Beast is suppose to be a bulky type character.



  17. 17

    His head is too big for his body… just like the other guy who is the new Spider man. Deport both of them.



  18. 18

    uno- i am american and watch skins… two- beast if a classy effer, not like me, and muscle is easy to get, but sophistication is not. c- did you see clash of the titans?? no one questioned him then… don't be act like you forgot his pretty blues turning to stone.



  19. 19

    He's fucking adorable. He's hot in skins and he was great in a single man.



  20. 20

    Jeeeeez all you saying he's too skinny, aren't you all aware that the film is only in the casting stages and for the role OBVIOUSLY he will be putting on muscle for the role and he has plenty of time to do so.



  21. 21

    Oh!! My!! God!! He is a brilliant actor. Yaaaay!!!



  22. 22

    Re: roryumyeah – Of course these people don't think that logically. They don't realise that so many people physically change for a role.



  23. 23

    yay…
    but seriously that's a bad role for him.



  24. 24

    he is so talented, im so glad hes getting roles in big films like clash of the titans and now this



  25. 25

    he is playing beast???? what happens to beast in this movie….is he anorexic or something???? LAME!



  26. 26

    Are you all surprised by this? Brian Singer loves em young and Gay faced. HE did have taylor lautner at his party. And for all of you don't know who Brian is. He is the film director for the X-men movies. And he is infact gay and well… the rest I will leave up to your imagination.



  27. 27

    I Love this guy! He was awesome in Skins- what a great show. He is super hot and sexy. I don't watch whatever show or movie you are talking about here but this actor is good



  28. 28

    major gay face going on…..



  29. 29

    i love him.. he is ridiculously good looking especially in skins and the tom ford ads



  30. 30

    He's here and he's queer!
    Lil twink (;



  31. 31

    Re: roryumyeah – You have never seen pictures of Beast obviously. This must be the twink version of X-Men. It would take years for him to create the body Beast is supposed to have. You think it will instantly happen? And with this guys current body type, he will not fit the role of Beast period. Just because you and Greatdane like your twinks, doesn't mean you need to justify this pansy being cast in the role. He'd make a good Jean Grey though.



  32. 32

    Never heard of this little twink / boi.



  33. 33

    Maybe for Cyclops. When Beast first comes to Xavier's School he has the build of a FOOTBALL PLAYER… what is it with the fucked up casting in these lame movies?



  34. 34

    Soooooooooo, GAY! (not that there is anything wrong with that!)



  35. 35

    Perez…Thank you! It's about time you started paying attention to Nick….he was AWESOME in the BBC series SKINS…everyone should check out the first two seasons of that show….can't wait to see more of him.



  36. 36

    he seems to little to be beast…we'll see i guess…



  37. 37

    What happened to Benjamin Walker???? I thought he was going to play Beast. He is awesome just finished up Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson in NYC and is marrying M. Streep's daughter…



  38. 38

    sounds like a shite flick running on a good name



  39. 39

    He's SO HOT!



  40. 40

    HOT!



  41. 41

    There was no adoption in its about a boy.



  42. 42

    WOW! Nicholas Hoult.
    I LOVE LOVE LOVE Skins !
    And I LOVE X-Men to…



  43. 43

    I support this.
    Mainly because if this is true… Then for some reason Benjamin Walker is no longer that part and then maybe Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson will be on Broadway by winter!



  44. 44

    he needs a tan again he was so sexy in a single man



  45. 45

    I just hope he's in the film version of SKINS. Tony was great.



  46. 46

    Re: roryumyeah – unless you'r the casting director for the film, STFU! OBVIOUSLY you don't know whether he'll be made to bulk up or not, OBVIOUSLY!



  47. 47

    Re: Greatdane/ – OBVIOUSLY you don't know that there isn't an exercise regimen for a severe case of gay face.



  48. 48

    wow, why does he look so skinny here?
