Happy New Year everyone! Good to be back on the fanboy grind.
Late last fall, the word got out that Chloe Moretz, Elle Fanning and Oscar-nominated actress Hailee Steinfeld were among the young ladies being eyed to play young Jean Grey in Bryan Singer‘s X-Men: Apocalypse, while Ben Hardy, Charlie Rowe and Timothee Chalamet were under consideration for the role of young Cyclops.
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.
Producer Simon Kinberg has already stated that the film will bring in younger actors to play Cyclops, »

Yesterday, it was being reported that a number of young up and coming, mostly unknown actors were testing for three very coveted roles in X-Men: Apocalypse. With the movie set in the 1980s, we'll be getting younger versions of Cyclops, Jean Grey and Storm this time around. As luck would have it, the rumor broke just as one of the candidates was making a public appearance.
Making his stateside debut in the comic book adaptation Kingsman: The Secret Service, which is in theaters this February and directed by X-Men: First Class' Matthew Vaughn, Taron Egerton is said to be up for Young Cyclops. He was at a special Q&A screening for Kingsman: The Secret Service when the news began to make the rounds. He doesn't claim to know anything about the casting, but remains fairly elusive in his response:
"I really can't comment on the Cyclops thing. I'm »
As of now, the only confirmed cast member for X-Men: Apocalypse is Oscar Isaac, who signed on in November to play the villainous Apocalypse himself. A number of actresses such as Chloe Moretz, Elle Fanning and Hailee Steinfeld were mentioned as contenders to play a young Jean Grey in November, while Ben Hardy, Charlie Rowe and Timothée Chalamet were in contention to play Scott Summers, a.k.a. Cyclops. Today, Latino Review reveals that a number of new actors and actresses are testing for the roles of Cyclops, Jean Grey and Storm, none of whom were mentioned in previous reports.
We reported in March that X-Men: Apocalypse is set in the 1980s, with producer Simon Kinberg confirming in September that the superhero adventure will re-cast younger actors for the iconic roles of Cyclops, Jean Grey and Storm. Actors currently testing for Cyclops are Taron Egerton (Kingsman: The Secret Service »
Over at Latino-Review, El Mayimbe just broke the news about a handful of actors who are actually testing for the roles of young Cyclops, Jean Grey, and Storm in Bryan Singer's upcoming sequel X-Men: Apocalypse.
The most interesting battle, in my mind, is for the role of young Jean Grey. Reportedly, Game of Thrones actress Sophie Turner and Hanna star Saoirse Ronan are testing for that part, and both seem like solid choices for the young telepath. Personally, I'd love to see Turner take a step up into the world of big-budget filmmaking, so I'm pulling for her to win this role.
As for the guys up for young Cyclops, the contenders are currently Taron Edgerton (Kingsman: The Secret Service), Jamie Blackley (If I Stay), and Tye Sheridan (Mud). Of these three, I've only seen Sheridan on the big screen before, so I suppose I should reserve judgment until »

While Zendaya Coleman may have shot to stardom on the Disney channel, the 18-year-old star has no desire to follow in the footsteps of Miley Cyrus.

Chicago – 2015 may prove to be huge year for the actress, model and young adult author Bella Thorne. The 17-year-old has many irons in the fire, including roles in several upcoming films this new year. The author in her was in Chicagoland last November, appearing at Anderson’s Bookshop in Naperville, Ill., on behalf of her new novel in the “Autumn Falls.”
Annabelle Avery “Bella” Thorne was born in Florida, and began her career as a child and teen model. After expanding into acting, Thorne got her first big break in the TV series “My Own Worst Enemy” (2008). After doing some independent films, she got the lead in the Disney Channel series, “Shake it Up,” portraying CeCe Jones. Art imitated life for that show, because Thorne’s character had dyslexia, a condition that Thorne shares with the character in her real life. »
