In another installment of Jimmy Kimmel's Celebrities Read Mean Tweets, we have the likes of Chris Pratt, Chloe Moretz, Adam Sandler, and a few others, reading off the harsh words of some insignificant d-bags of whom they'll never meet. Okay, to be fair, I've done my share of bashing individuals I don't know, but I think it's pretty fascinating to see the actual celebrities read them out loud.

We.ve spent a great deal of this year celebrating the success of Bryan Singer.s X-Men: Days of Future Past, but the time has come to look towards the future. With production scheduled to start in the first half of next year, X-Men: Apocalypse has begun its casting process . and already they.re eyeing some talented new actors. As we reported earlier in the week, a pair of actor shortlists have been leaked and feature three actors, respectively, that could wind up playing young Jean Grey and young Cyclops in X-Men: Apocalypse. It appears that 20th Century Fox is aiming to bring a big name aboard for the former role, as Chloe Moretz, Elle Fanning and Hailee Steinfeld have been listed as the actresses in contention, but for the latter part they seem to be looking for a newcomer, focusing in on Ben Hardy, Charlie Rowe and Timothee Chalamet. »
With Jennifer Lawrence doing the promotional rounds for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, it’s inevitable that the actress will be fielding questions about her upcoming role in 2016’s X-Men: Apocalypse, and during a chat with IGN the actress has briefly spoken about where we’ll find her character Mystique in the mutant superhero sequel:
“She’s very complex. She’s a hero to her own race in a way which makes her a villain to the opposite race. I don’t really know where she’s gonna go. I’ve had a few conversations about where we’ll find her. She obviously needs to be in hiding somewhere.”
X-Men: Apocalypse is being directed by Bryan Singer, with Lawrence set to be joined by X-Men: Days of Future Past stars James McAvoy (Professor X), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Evan Peters (Quicksilver) and Hugh Jackman (Wolverine). Meanwhile Chloe Moretz »

There is little we know about 20th Century Fox's X-Men: Apocalypse, except that it will close out the trilogy featuring the younger characters from X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past, and that it will be set in the 1980s. While promoting The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, Jennifer Lawrence revealed in an interview with IGN that her character Mystique should be in hiding, following the events of X-Men: Days of Future Past.
"She's very complex. She's a hero to her own race in a way which makes her a villain to her opposite race. I don't really know where she's going to go. I've had a few conversations about where we'll find her. She obviously needs to be in hiding somewhere."
We also reported last week that the sequel will focus on Mystique's relationship with Michael Fassbender's Magneto, while also addressing her burgeoning romance with Beast »

In the “original trilogy” of X-Men movies, Famke Janssen was Bryan Singer and Brett Ratner’s Jean Grey. She was a force to be reckoned with, and she wore a heck of a lot of red. On the other side of the Jean-Scott coin, James Marsden’s Cyclops had enough cheek and charm to throw off Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) as a rival for Jean Grey’s attentions.
But that was then. This is now. Let’s get into some Days of Future Past spoilers.
With X-Men: Days Of Future Past rebooting the X-Men timeline and essentially erasing everything that happened in X-Men: The Last Stand, it makes sense that Janssen and Marsden are back, casually talking to Logan at the end of Days of Future Past as if nothing happened.
In that scene, however, it’s clear that this is when Professor Xavier is much older (and more bald) – as »

According to The Wrap, X-Men: Apocalypse director Bryan Singer is taking two different routes while casting younger versions of Jean Grey and Scott Summers in the new film. In the case of Jean Grey, the director has reportedly met with some rather high profile young actresses, while he's spoken to somewhat fresher faces for Cyclops.
The Wrap's report states that Singer has chatted with the likes of Elle Fanning, Oscar-nominated True Grit star Hailee Steinfeld, and Kickass! star Chloe Grace Moretz in recent weeks. It's unclear how any of those conversations went, but it gives an indication for the kind of actress Singer is settings his sights on.
When it comes to Scott Summers, aka Cyclops, the candidates are a little more muted. The biggest name on the list is Timothée Chalamet, who just appeared in Christopher Nolan's Interstellar. He's joined on the shortlist by Ben Hardy and Charlie Rowe. »

Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Apocalypse is going introduce fans to a younger version of Jean Grey and Cyclops. The characters were previously portrayed by Famke Janssen and James Marsden. It wouldn’t make sense for them to reprise their roles, though, because the story for the upcoming sequel is set in the 1980s.
According to The Wrap the studio, is looking at casting either Chloe Moretz (Kick-Ass), Elle Fanning (Super 8) or Hailee Steinfeld (Ender’s Game) as a young Jean Grey. As for the part of Cyclops, they are looking at Ben Hardy (EastEnders), Charlie Rowe (Red Band Society), and Timothee Chalamet (Interstellar). The news comes from multiple sources close to the production at 20th Century Fox.
An insider confirmed that both Moretz and Fanning have met with Singer recently, but there are other up-and-coming actresses still in the mix. No official test offers have been made yet, but »

Director Bryan Singer already said that "X-Men: Apocalypse" will mostly focus on the younger X-Men team. And now comes word that the helmer is in talks with several actors to play the roles of Jean Grey and Cyclops. For the role of Jean Grey, the list of actresses includes Chloe Moretz (Kick-Ass), Elle Fanning (Maleficent) and Hailee Steinfelf (True Grit). For the role of Cyclops, the actors being considered are Ben Hardy (EastEnders), Charlie Rowe (Never Let Me Go) and Timothee Chalamet (Interstellar). Singer has already met with some of actors, but is still considering others, including unknowns. Famke Janssen played Jean Grey in five "X-Men" movies, with Haley Ramm portraying the character in "X-Men: The Last Stand." Cyclops, aka Scott Summers, has been portrayed by James Marsden in four films and by Tim Pocock in "X-Men: Origins: Wolverine." »
Chloe Moretz, Hailee Steinfeld, Elle Fanning, Ben Hardy, Charlie Rowe and Timothee Chalamet are all reportedly under consideration for two key roles in Bryan Singer's upcoming "X-Men: Apocalypse" at 20th Century Fox. The two roles are that of the younger incarnations of Jean Grey and Cyclops in the 1980s-set project.
Moretz and Fanning have reportedly met with Singer in recent weeks for the young Jean Grey part, but official test offers for the role have not been made yet. Singer seems to be going with an established name for Jean as the role is expected to recur in future X-Men movies.
A younger version of Storm is also expected to appear in the film, »

With casting underway on X-Men: Apocalypse, it seems that 20th Century Fox and director Bryan Singer have identified a shortlist of candidates to take on the roles of Cyclops and Jean Grey, played of course by James Marsden and Famke Janssen in the previous X-Men movies.
According to The Wrap, Chloe Moretz (The Equalizer), Elle Fanning (Maleficent) and Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit) are under consideration for the role of the young Jean Grey, while Ben Hardy (EastEnders), Charlie Rowe (Neverland) and Timothee Chalamet (Interstellar) are being considered for the part of Scott Summers. According to the site’s sources, the actors have met with Singer, but it is said that there are other names in the mix.
X-Men: Apocalypse is set for release May 19th, 2016 with James McAvoy (Professor X), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Evan Peters (Quicksilver) and Hugh Jackman (Wolverine) all confirmed to return. »

With X-men: Apocalypse getting ready for a 2016 release, casting rumours have been announced for the roles of Jean Grey and Cyclops. The two characters have obviously been included in the original trilogy, as well as cameos in this year’s X-men: Days Of Future Past, with Cyclops also making an appearance in X-men Origins: Wolverine and Jean Grey popping up in The Wolverine. With James Marsden and Famke Janssen having played the roles originally, they are too old for the current X-Men timeline which follows a younger Professor X and Magneto.
Casting suggestions for Jean Grey, so far, include Elle Fanning, Chloe Grace Moretz, and Hailee Steinfeld, while the casting for Cyclops seems to be between Timothee Chalamet, Ben Hardy, and Charlie Rowe. If it does transpire that Professor X is gradually recruiting his household name team of mutants, then perhaps we’ll see other young versions of characters. It »

Bryan Singer is homing in on new additions to the X-Men cast for his upcoming movie, X-Men: Apocalypse. The film will centre on the X-Men: First Class cast (and pick things up after X-Men: Days Of Future Past), but it'll also be introducing younger versions of characters we've already seen in previous X-Men adventures. As such, the search is on for acting talent to play the young versions of Cyclops and Jean Grey.
So who's on the short list?
For Jean Grey, The Wrap is reporting that Elle Fanning (last seen in Maleficent), Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit) and Chloe Grace Moretz (Kick-Ass) are on the shortlist. Meanwhile, the younger Cyclops could be taking the form of Ben Hardy (Peter Beale in EastEnders, no less), Charlie Rowe (Walking With Dinosaurs) and »
We saw – spoiler alert for those who didn’t – at the end of X-Men: Days Of Future Past that Famke Janssen’s Jean Grey and James Marsden’s Cyclops were restored to the timeline by Wolverine and co.’s actions in the past. But it appears that Bryan Singer is ready to exploit the 1980s setting of the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse to show younger versions of the characters, and the initial round of casting rumours has begun with the likes of Chloë Grace Moretz, Hailee Steinfeld, Ben Hardy, Charlie Rowe and Timothee Chalamet in early consideration for the roles.According to The Wrap, these are all very basic feelers being put out by 20th Century Fox and the X-Men team, and nothing formal has been sorted yet. Given that we’re in the casting roulette stage of Apocalypse, the roles could be played by anyone and this is simply Singer »
Back in September, we reported that 20th Century Fox's highly-anticipated superhero adventure X-Men: Apocalypse will re-cast iconic characters such as Storm, Jean Grey and Cyclops, which makes sense since we reported in March that the sequel will be set in the 1980s. Today, The Wrap is reporting that Chloe Moretz, Elle Fanning and Hailee Steinfeld are in contention to play Jean Grey, with Ben Hardy, Charlie Rowe and Timothée Chalamet being eyed for Cyclops.
Insiders claim that both Chloe Moretz and Elle Fanning have met with director Bryan Singer to discuss the role over the past few weeks, but it isn't clear if there is a front runner among the trio, and the site also mentions that Elle Fanning may not even be interested in the role. Sources claim that official test offers have not been made to any actress yet, and several others still remain in the mix. »
It's time for the X-Men: Apocalypse cast to start locking down new talent for some new roles who will join returning cast members like Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult and hopefully (presumably) Hugh Jackman. We've heard some new mutants would enter the mix, and that they would likely be young versions of the X-Men we had already seen in the original X-Men franchise. Now that has been confirmed as The Wrap reports Elle Fanning, Chloe Moretz and Hailee Steinfeld are all on the shortlist to play the telekinetic mutant Jean Grey, mentored by Professor X. But there's even more! In addition, Bryan Singer is also on the hunt for someone to play a young Cyclops, the optic blasting mutant who ends up falling in love with Jean Grey. The names in consideration for that role are a little lesser known than those in the running for Jean »
