James McAvoy Will Star in X-Men: First Class —I’m Unhappy

James McAvoy has signed on for the new X-Men film, which is said to be a prequel to the franchise.   McAvoy is one of my favorite actors and I hate the fact that he’s transitioning from being a character actor to a big box office star.  I realize the man has to eat, and the easiest way to make money is starring in big budget films, but I thought he was already in a position to pick and choose his roles based on quality.  He was in ‘Atonement’ and ‘The Last King of Scotland,’ and now this?  I’m disappointed.
