RUMOR: Benjamin Walker as Beast in ‘X-Men: First Class’?

Showbiz411 reports that the young actor Benajmin Walker athletic genius Henry McCoy, a.k.a. Beast in Matthew Vaughn’s (Kick-Ass) X-Men: First Class. Don’t worry if you’ve never heard of this dude. His most notable and raved performance is from the stage play Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson. He’s made appearances in both Kinsey and Clint Eastwood’s Flags of Our Fathers.

Before Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. Before they were archenemies, they were closest of friends, working together, with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to stop the greatest threat the world has ever known. In the process, a rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto’s Brotherhood and Professor X’s X-Men.

X-Men: First Class is scheduled for release on June 7, 2010.
