James "Professor X" McAvoy?

According to my secret source (the internet), James McAvoy is slated to play Professor X in in X-Men: First Class.  I want your thoughts on this.  Is this a huge mistake or just what this movie needed?

I'm afraid it has no bearing either way on me; I could just not care less about any more X-Men movies. It's been milked enough.

I actually like this idea for a film... I just hope they abandon the existing film mythology and get back to the root source. The first class was Beast, Iceman, Jean Grey and Cyclops... that doesn't work if compared to the ages and timelines of the Singer films. I loooove Matthew Vaughn to direct and I think McEvoy is pretty much top notch in everything so bring it on.
FUN FACT: McEvoy was roommates with the guy who plays Chase on HOUSE, M.D. before they got famous... I guess that's not that fun! :)
Anyword on the ol' intraweb as to who's up for Magneto?

At least nobody from Gossip Girl is cast.

It could be worse, people.

McAvoy could read a phone book for two hours and I'd watch it.
