Jennifer Lawrence Adds Mystique To X-Men

Jennifer Lawrence, breakout star of the indie drama, Winter's Bone, has become the latest actor to join the cast of Matthew Vaughn's X-Men: First Class.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the 19 year-old Lawrence will play Mystique in the X-prequel, which starts filming in just a couple of weeks here in London.

Mystique, of course, is the shapeshifting, rather shapely evil mutant played by Rebecca Romijn in the X-Men trilogy. Although she's the mother of Nightcrawler and a fairly significant player in the comic book universe, Mystique was very much a supporting character in the Bryan Singer/Brett Ratner films, and was ignominiously stripped of her powers early on in The Last Stand.
