January Jones of ‘Mad Men’ joins ‘X-Men:First Class’

January Jones is now confirmed to have stepped into the X-Men: First Class role of Emma Frost, reports Variety.

Frost was introduced in “Uncanny X-Men” #129 in 1980, created by Chris Claremont and John Byrne as The White Queen, a prominent member of the Hellfire Club, a group of wealthy mutants who used their power and powers to confound the X-Men, playing a key role in “The Dark Phoenix Saga.”

Contenders for the part have recently been rumored to include Rosamund Pike and Alice Eve, but Jones emerged as the top choice for the role.

Other casting updates include news that Zoe Kravitz has also been cast as Angel while Bill Bilner will play Magneto as a young boy.

They join James McAvoy, Rose Byrne, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Jennifer Lawrence, Caleb Landry Jones, Lucas Till, Edi Gathegi, Kevin Bacon, Jason Flemyng and Oliver Platt in the Marvel Comics adaptation, set to hit theaters on June 3, 2011.
