Kick-Ass star and cougar bait Aaron Johnson has been cast as Cyclops in X-Men: First Class, if a tipster to AintItCoolNews is to be believed.

I work in the [REDACTED] and we heard today that Matthew Vaughn found his young Cyclops and it shouldn’t be any surprise because he worked with him before. It’s Aaron Johnson. This is one hundred percent locked at this point. Thought you guys should know.  Call me “Son of Rothman”.

Johnson would join the already cast James McAvoy as Professor X and Michael F. Assbender as Magneto.  The “Son of Rothman” is a reference to Fox chief Tom Rothman, and although AICN doesn’t name their source, they say he or she is reliable.  Meanwhile, last we heard from Johnson, he was calling people who had approached him with superhero roles

Artist Sam Taylor-Wood has given birth to a little girl – her first child with her toy boy fiance, actor Aaron Johnson. The acclaimed British artist turned film director, 43, gave birth to Wylda Rae yesterday with her 20-year-old lover by her side.
Mr Johnson, who recently appeared in the critically lauded film, Kick-Ass, lives with Miss Taylor-Wood and her daughters, 13-year-old Angelica and five-year-old Jessie, in an £11 million north London townhouse.
It is believed that she was able to afford the huge property without a mortgage as part of her 2008 divorce settlement from art dealer Jay Jopling, who is said to have a fortune of £100million. ($151.5 million). [DailyMail]

Ah, so now the truth comes out, she’s not just older, she’s rich.  Oh, Aaron Johnson’s crazy for dating a 43-year-old, all right.  Crazy like a boner fox.
