Below the streets of Cheesebridge live the Boxtrolls, a community of cave-dwelling and cardboard box-wearing creatures, who are believed to pose a threat to the citizens of the town and their children.

Well, it looks like those names were preliminary because I got a new batch of names and these young folks are actually testing for the roles at this stage.

We know that the main X-Men: First Class cast - including James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender and Jennifer Lawrence - are all returning.

But who's going to be playing the likes of young Jean Grey, Cyclops and Storm?

Let's start with Jean Grey. Playing by Famke Jannsen in the original X-Men movies, the current contenders for the part in X-Men: Apocalypse are apparently Game Of Thrones' Sophie Turner, Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit), Elle Fanning (Maleficent) and Saorise Ronan (Hanna).

Poll: Who Do You Think Should Play 'Cyclops'/'Jean Grey' In X-men: Apocalypse?

10 January 2015 10:38 AM, PST | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Cyclops and Jean Grey are two of the most iconic X-Men of all-time, but they never really got the big screen treatment they deserved in the original trilogy. That's what makes X-Men: Apocalypse so exciting; writer Simon Kinberg and director Bryan Singer finally have a chance to make up for past mistakes! Last year, a shortlist emerged which revealed that Ben Hardy (Eastenders), Charlie Rowe (Red Band Society) and Timothee Chalamet (Interstellar) were all being considered for Cyclops. Last night, we discovered that Taron Egerton (Kingsman: The Secret Service), Jamie Blackley (If I Stay), and Tye Sheridan (Mud) might just be the favourites, with the latter possibly a frontunner. On the Jean Grey front, Elle Fanning (Maleficent), Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit), Sophie Turner (Game of Thrones) and Saoirse Ronan (Hanna) may be in the running. The question now of course is which of these actors would you most like to »

9 January 2015 11:44 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Larry Wilmore may not be the only African American host in late night television. Neil deGrasse Tyson, noted astrophysicist and the Internet’s favorite person ever behind Benedict Cumberbatch and Patrick Stewart, is reportedly moving his hit podcast Star Talk to the National Geographic Channel, Deadline reports.

The show is inspired by NPR’s Car Talk and features Tyson speaking with celebrities about everything from science to pop culture to comedy. “It will be National Geographic’s very first talk show so we look forward to how this plays out,” Tyson said to a group of journalists at the Winter TV Press Tour 2015.

Tyson previously hosted Fox’s remake of the documentary series Cosmos, and we previously reported that he has an awful lot of thoughts about Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar. He recently also attracted some unwanted attention from religious types after tweeting that Isaac Newton shared a birthday with Jesus Christ. »
