• James McAvoy (Wanted) has been hired to play Professor X in the X-Men: First Class movie prequel. James McAvoy is 31 years old. How old are Cyclops and Jean Grey going to be, five? Jesus. Furthermore, Fox apparently hasn't said if McAvoy will be bald in the movie or not. If I find out this is even up for discussion, I will fire a missile filled with poisonous scorpions at Fox HQ.

• Tommy Lee Jones has been hired for the Captain America movie, supposedly the general who oversees the Super-Soldier program in the '40s that turns Steve Rogers into Cap. Excellent actor for the audience, easy paycheck for Jones. Everyone wins. (Via CBR)

FilmDrunk made the above collage of the five guys in the running to play Peter Parker in the Spider-Man reboot (and a very large cat). ...yeah. Why don't we just save everyone some time and cast a bottle of American Crew Firm Hold Styling Gel for Men?
