Hmm - they went for someone slightly less known!
Although there were reports that Amber Heard had snagged the part, actress Jennifer Lawrence has been officially cast as the new Mystique in Matthew Vaughn's X-Men: First Class!
Lawrence is a relative newcomer to the biz, but in a HIGHlarious and slightly ironic twist of timing, she reportedly appears in The Beaver with none other than deplorable fuck MELtdown Gibson!
We wonder what kind of stories she'll have to share about THAT experience!
