X-Men: First Class actor Lucas Till has revealed that he has spent his whole life dreaming of being a Superhero, so he jumped at the opportunity to star in the X-Men prequel. However, it was not only Havok that Lucas was auditioned for. He was also in line to play Beast, much to his dismay.
Till explained, "They could've been trying to goof me or whatever but I went out, and they were flying me to London, and they told me I was auditioning for Havok and Beast. I was like, 'I know you'll kill me, but if I get Beast, I'm not in the movie. I'm not going through that makeup everyday.’”
He also added, “I've wanted to be a superhero my entire life and now I got to play one, one of the cooler characters in one of the cooler franchises." Lucas Till currently has two movies set for release this year with a further three already due out next year. X-Men: First Class is out on DVD and Blu-Ray on Friday.
