Holy shit balls the ridiculously long list of casting for X-Men First Class continues, TOLDJA! is reporting that Oliver Platt has now also joined the cast, but surprisingly he will NOT be a mutant unlike the other 500 mutants appearing in the film already. His character is known as "The Man in Black", which I'm assuming has no relation to legendary singer Johnny Cash.
The ridiculously long list of stars in this film is as follows, James McAvoy as Xavier, Michael Fassbender as Magneto, Alice Eve as Emma Frost, Nicholas Hoult as Beast, Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique, Caleb Landry Jones as Banshee, Lucas Till as Havoc, and Edi Gathegi as Darwin. Kevin Bacon is playing the villain and Rose Byrne will play McAvoy's love interest Moira MacTaggert.
Production is expected to start next month in London for a June 3, 2011 release date.
