Don Draper's Ex Moves on to 'X-Men'

Never mind about Alice Eve playing White Queen. Variety is now claiming Mad Men's January Jones has signed on to the psychic-powered role in X-Men: First Class, bringing with her years of experience in giving icy glares to heroic-looking men. Additionally, the trade notes that Son of Rambow's Bill Milner will play a young Magneto (because no matter how youthful of a Magneto we focus on, we apparently always need to also show him in flashback) and that Lenny Kravitz/Lisa Bonet-spawn Zoë Kravitz will play an unspecified role, though some outlets have reported it as being Angel--possibly because she was recently in a relationship with Ben Foster, who already played a gender-correct Angel in the disastrous X-Men: The Last Stand? So if we continue with that sexually-transmitted casting logic, doesn't that mean Jerry O'Connell is playing Mystique?
