Not getting enough Betty Draper in this season of Mad Men so far? Well you January Jonesfans have something new to look forward to: Deadline reports the actress has been cast in the role of Emma Frost (aka White Queen) in X-Men: First Class. So apparently Alice Eve did not get the part? This character has gone through a few possible names, with Rosamund Pike linked before Eve, but with production nearing Jones is now the one signed and locked. And I couldn't be happier, because I know she's a terrific actress and she looks damn good in a corset (she just needs to switch that black one on the right to white and she's all set).

In addition to Jones, a few more people have been cast in the superhero origins tale, including Zoe Kravitz(Twelve), as Angel, who I guess is a different version of the winged character from the one played by Ben Foster in X-Men: The Last Stand, Bill Milner (Son of Rambow) as the younger Erik Lensherr/Magneto, who is also being portrayed older in the film by Michael Fassbender, and Morgan Lily (2012) as the young Raven/Mystique prior to Jennifer Lawrence inhabiting the role. Also confirmed: Oliver Platt as "The Man in Black." And I don't think that's Johnny Cash, but wouldn't that be interesting?

What do you think of the latest casting additions to the over-flowing talent in X-Men: First Class?
