Casting Update: X-Men: First Class

Rose Byrne will be playing Dr. Moira McTaggert in the upcoming X-Men movie. She’s Australian, but as long as she does a good Scottish accent I’m fine with this. That’s really the only must I have for Moira. That she can coo “Chaaahhhles” correctly when talking to Xavier. Thoughts?

    I liked her in Sunshine and 28 Weeks Later.

    The latest casting is Oliver Platt as “Man In Black”, a new character created specifically for the movie. I will withhold any riffs on this until more is revealed.

    Just saw that IMDB.com has Kevin Bacon listed as Sebastian Shaw. First I’ve heard of that. Back in the day IMDB was not too reliable on new and upcoming movies, but the site has grown a lot since then and become more of an entertainment hub. Maybe that can be trusted.

      Yeah, his role is still technically unconfirmed, but most everyone has assumed it’s Sebastian Shaw – which is just HORRIBLE casting. Sebastian Shaw is a huge guy with muttonchops. I’m not sure that Kevin Bacon can even grow a mustache lol.
