January Jones Has Signed Up To Play Emma Frost In Three X-Men Movies!

A recent report on the actress reveals that she's set to play Emma Frost in more than just X-Men: First Class and the actress also briefly comments on finding out about the 1960's setting...

In a recent interview while promoting her latest movie, Unknown, the actress was quizzed about the setting of the upcoming X-Men: First Class.

Appropriately enough, her first foray into X-Men territory will take place in the Mad Men era.

"When I was first approached, they were like 'By the way, it’s 1962,'" she says with a note of amused exasperation. "I was like 'You must be kidding me.'"


But here's the interesting thing the site mention:

A three-movie deal to play the buxom Emma Frost...


A three picture deal? I might be wrong, but I'm pretty sure that this is the first we've heard of the actress signing up to play the character in more than just X-Men: First Class! While it's fairly standard these days for actors to sign up for sequels (even Tom Hardy recently revealed that he's set to return for Inception 2 if Christopher Nolan decided to make it) the fact the the Mad Men star has committed to three movies shows that Fox clearly have big plans for the 1960's set prequels and will not be starting work on X-Men 4 any time soon!

X-Men: First Class is set to be released on June 3, later this year!

January is excellent for the part. I hope they don't screw this one up.
Sanderman - 3/14/2011, 9:30 PM
the next ones will begin to have the real first class. the producer said the first class was just too good of a name to pass up for this but you will eventually see the real first class in the sequal

Fox well never ever ever ever ever give up the franchise even they butcher and slaughter the xmen name, I understand why fans hate it but you guys gotta understand xmen and x2 were a great pioneer for comic book movies into modern audience cause it made interest for other comic book movies to come and yes some are good and some are bad. But you better recognize. Vaughan is directing it who understood what happen to x3 and singer is back as well to bring what started the franchise and made it popular. Love it or hate, but then again this is fox last take on xmen for every fan even the fans like me who is backing this movie up. I'm just hoping they pull it like what they did with star trek reboot.

No three-movie deal for First Class !

X4 NOW !
Reasonnnn - 3/14/2011, 9:57 PM
If the 1st one is good and Vaughn decides to helm this trilogy, then I don't mind.
ironpool007 - 3/14/2011, 9:59 PM
More X-Men from FOX? [frick] THIS SHIT!
IronicMan - 3/14/2011, 10:03 PM
Sweeet.
@Reasonnn: I agree. The last two X-films were crap, but with the team behind this one, I have faith.
Just hope for a cameo from Stan the Man.
BrotherStarkofMABMindz - 3/14/2011, 10:11 PM
Maybe there will be the actual FIRST Class in the future, you know what I'm confused alls I know is that Fox is ruining CBM's
MaddMonkk - 3/14/2011, 10:17 PM
A REAL first class will impossible if this story continues. Beast will already be mutated when the originals appear. Age differences in the five is all wrong. I'm worried about this franchise. Maybe a complete reboot is in order, we'll see after this movie i guess.

Lord Vader disagree's!!!
cbluem - 3/14/2011, 10:24 PM
I would actually not mind giving FOX another chance on X-Men with Vaughn involved. It's the fact that they are not giving up the world they created. I truly respect the first two just for what they did for CBM's. Marvel has proven that you can wear the suits from the comics. You just have to back it up with a good story. If they did "re-boot" it and started with this movie and added the correct First Class, then we would be set up from an early time period, and lots of characters to add in throughout the years. The fact that most characters from the movies aren't even born yet. I also hate the fact that Beast was a human in the first movie and yet we are to see him in blue in the 60's? Either stick to your story or don't. Not a little of both.
Tonga - 3/14/2011, 10:33 PM
Doesn't matter what we think. we're all going to see it anyway. I mean..It's X-Men people. who's buying the popcorn and Milk Duds? HA!
peeandvagee - 3/14/2011, 10:43 PM
god damn shes hot
CaptainAmerica - 3/14/2011, 10:52 PM
@cbluem, Beast wasn't in the first one -_-
TayDee - 3/14/2011, 11:08 PM
I've been thinking and saying this for a while but if this does well financially and viewed well by the critics, then this will be looked at as a reboot and they will throw the original five in there in a sequel
JoshJones - 3/14/2011, 11:10 PM
Cool. BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOBS.
JerBear - 3/14/2011, 11:12 PM
@Tonga
It's definitely NOT X-Men, and no I won't be seeing it.
tazmaniak - 3/14/2011, 11:12 PM
Looks like Vaughn is trying to fashion himself as the first director to solely focus on comic book/superhero films.

Stardust
Kick Ass
X-Men: First Class
Kick Ass 2
Golden Age
X-Men Men: First Class Sequel?

Nice.
luckylu - 3/14/2011, 11:26 PM
@captainamerica- yes he was. for like 5 seconds though
THABATMAN - 3/14/2011, 11:29 PM
sad day :( more X-men from Fox.

She does look good in the part though
SamHell - 3/14/2011, 11:31 PM
Where's all the fu@kin J Jones pics? Y'all are slipping.
DoctorRobert - 3/14/2011, 11:39 PM
shitty actress for a shitty movie! YAY! -.-"
Luther - 3/14/2011, 11:43 PM
....uhhhhh..this is what I've been saying for MONTHS now! I expect them to span through diff decades, for at least 3 First Class films. Only to lead up to X-Men 4. Which, by the end of the third first class film, you will have the original 5..and be officially dubbed the first team, called the X-Men. And there you go..through creative maneuvering you will have your original 5 as a team, in some way shape or form.
JerBear - 3/15/2011, 12:02 AM
@Luther
No... Iceman and Angel are too young. Plus Storm was one of the original X-Men according to these movies. So it's more like "through not-so-creative maneuvering you will have your unoriginal 3: Cyclops, Jean and Storm and possibly Beast, which wouldn't make any sense continuitywise, but since this is FOX who the [frick] cares."
SamHell - 3/15/2011, 12:48 AM
That's better!
EpicMovieFan - 3/15/2011, 12:59 AM
NO MORE FOX PLEASE!! STOP!!
SKGannbit - 3/15/2011, 1:05 AM
boycott
ThunderCougarFalconBird - 3/15/2011, 1:18 AM
A three movie deal is the standard contract for a CBM. I don't know why this is made such a big deal of. The part I find most interesting is her reaction to knowing it's set in the 60's. Nice find on that front Josh but the three picture deal is not news and doesn't mean a thing. My god I sound like Grif! Sorry dude!
Gattsu - 3/15/2011, 1:19 AM
Don't get me wrong, January Jones is hot and she makes for a good White Queen, but personally I would have stuck with Tahyna Tozzi who originally played her in X-Men Borigins. If you look at some of her pics online she actually looks a little more like Emma Frost plus I think she's got a slightly bigger rack on her as well lol.
steelrocks - 3/15/2011, 1:21 AM


AS LONG AS [frick]ING SINGER STAY AWAY FROM THE REST OF THE MOVIES, I WILL BLINDLY SUPPORT IT.
LEEE777 - 3/15/2011, 2:10 AM
3 X-MEN MOVIES????????

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!


Ffs worst news this year!!!

LEEE777 - 3/15/2011, 2:13 AM
We will never get our original 5 X-Men if we support this sh1T.... serious hope this fails on an epic scale!

Or any decent X-MEN movie for that matter!
OdinsMissingEye - 3/15/2011, 2:35 AM
Beast was'nt in the first or second X-men movies, but Dr Hank McCoy was in the second one.

In the bar scene before Mystique seduced the guard and took him into the toilet to stab him with a syringe full of liquid iron, McCoy is seen on the television talking.

Oh and January Jones is bad casting for Emma Frost, but why should this be any surprise, its not like anyone expects Fox to do anything right at all when it comes to these movies.
Joe6Pack74 - 3/15/2011, 2:50 AM
Wow they can make a X-men - Second Class and X-men - Third Class.
Sjet - 3/15/2011, 4:18 AM
She is hot but not Emma Frost hot
sheebz - 3/15/2011, 4:20 AM
3 movies?!?!?! dear god why....WHY?!
megabatfan - 3/15/2011, 4:46 AM
A 3 picture deal seems to be pretty standard these days. Though I was hoping IF in fact there were to be a sequel, it would be set some time after the events of Wolverine Origins. That way i'd be able to see some kind of team resembling the Original First Class, namely Cyclops, Jean, Beast....then throw in Storm & another X-man
CherryBomb - 3/15/2011, 4:55 AM
Alice Eve should've stayed. She looks more bad-ass and elegant. Plus, has bigger boobs! (: - and Alice has a British accent, which I bet they would've let her keep = PERFECT.

Why did you have to drop out Alice!?!?!
