James McAvoy to Lead the X-Men as Young Professor X

James McAvoy: superhero! Though I never thought I'd see the day, I'm excited to report that McAvoy has been cast in X-Men: First Class as a young Charles Xavier!

The Scottish thespian will play the man who will become Professor X (you know, prebaldness, pre-Magneto battling) in the prequel, which Matthew Vaughn will direct.
