Lucas Till unleashes his power in this brand-new TV spot for X:Men First Class.
The 20-year-old actor stars as Alex Summers a.k.a. Havok, who has the ability to absorb cosmic energy and discharge blasts from the energy.
Opening June 3rd, the movie charts the epic beginning of the X-Men saga, and reveals a secret history of famous global events. Before mutants had revealed themselves to the world, and before Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) and Erik Lehnsherr (Michael Fassbender) took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time.
Not archenemies, they were instead at first the closest of friends, working together with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to prevent nuclear Armageddon.
Lucas is also pictured at the NYC premiere on Wednesday evening (May 25).

Lucas Till is one of the five actors that director Gary Ross is particularly looking at for the role of Peeta Mellark in The Hunger Games.
Just a few days ago, our friends at The Hob sent us a little Q&A that they did with the 20-year-old actor. Check out what he had to say:
On his initial appeal: “The violence is real and full of truth, I’ve never read something where the issues a society struggles with literally depend whether kids my age live or die. Things aren’t sugarcoated and the truth is that’s how the real world is. Kids my age and younger deal with danger, death, and being separated from their families all the time. It’s the real world and most of the times kids are victims of greed and power that isn’t their own.”
On liking that Peeta isn’t perfect: “Peeta doesn’t come from a perfect place, but he didn’t grow up in the Seam either. Nothing is perfect no matter who you are. I think there’s a trade-off and even though Peeta didn’t grow up struggling as much as if he lived in the Seam, he didn’t have it easy and his mom, well, you know how she is.”
Remember to vote in our polls!
JJJ Fun Fact: If Lucas does in fact book the role of Peeta, this will be the second movie that he’ll star with Jennifer Lawrence in. They’ll both be seen in the upcoming X-Men: First Class opening this summer.
Lucas Till suits up for the premiere of his new flick, Battle: Los Angeles held at the Regency Village Theater on Tuesday night (March 8) in Westwood, Calif.
The 20-year-old actor plays Cpl. Scott Grayston in the flick, opposite Aaron Eckhart, Bridget Moynahan and Joey King.

Lucas Till plays peek-a-boo in these new shots from the March 2011 issue of August Man mag.
Inside the issue, the 20-year-old actor opens up about having Havok’s super powers, his dream of becoming a real action figure and his new production company.
On being Cyclops brother: “I definitely remember wanting to be Wolverine, but Havok is a great consolation prize. I can shoot energy beams out of my entire body, and I’m the brother of Cyclops. Havok has always historically been the brother with more potential, bu because he has less control over his powers, he has always been secluded and separated.”
On becoming a real video game character: “I’ve had two goals in my life: one was to someday be an action figure, and the other one was to be in a video game, and one of those was completed with Hannah Montana. They came out with this Ken Doll of me and this crazy HM video game. (In the game) there was this guy on the cover, wearing my clothes and I was like, ‘That’s me?!’ And I just went ahead and bought it because I thought, ‘I have to check this out,’ and there was this 35-year-old dude with a much higher voice than me doing my voice and I was like, ‘that is not me!’ X-Men is going to be my legitimate shot at getting it right.”
On loving producing more than acting: “It’s called Grindfest, and the name suggest that we like to have fun…I like producing, or being a very creative producer, rather, where I can get a taste of what it’s like to be director without having to have all the responsibility fall on my shoulders. From the script up until seeing the final product — it’s like watching a child growing up.”

Lucas Till leans back against a stucco wall in this new spread from the March 2011 issue of DaMan magazine.
The 20-year-old merging action star talks to the mag about being into brunettes, becoming a super hero and his character in Battle: Los Angeles. Check it:
On landing the role of Corporal Grayston: “I did a pre-reading for an audition and I got a call-back. All of us were reading for one specific character and then they would divide us off afterward depending on what character we fit the most. I got the call back and met the director, Jonathan Liebesman and I remember after doing a scene for him I was panting heavily and getting a little lightheaded and I said, â€˜well that was intense.â€™ He said, â€˜well get ready for six months of that,â€™ or something like that. It scared me a little bit, but then I ended up getting a different role.”
On finally playing a superhero: “I just did X-Men. Iâ€™ve always dreamed of being a superhero and I actually got to play one. Iâ€™m pretty much finished. I play Alex Summers whose mutant name is Havok and has the ability to absorb cosmic energy and shoot plasma beams. He is the brother of Scott Summers, or Cyclops, which everyone would know even if youâ€™re not a comic book fan from the previous movies.”
On being a brunette type of guy: “Intelligence is important for me, but it doesnâ€™t hurt if she looks really good. Itâ€™s really just more like a case-by-case basis. I might like her and I canâ€™t really figure out why, I just do. But, I like brunettes, thatâ€™s for sure.”

Lucas Till shows off part of his daily workout in the February 2011 issue of VMAN magazine.
The 20-year-old star opened up to the mag about bulking up for his upcoming roles in Battle: Los Angeles and X-Men: First Class. He shared, “The day after I arrived on location to shoot Battle: Los Angeles, I started a three-week boot camp. The first week consisted of getting my body physically and mentally ready for everything the marines would be doing in the weeks to come.”
Lucas added, “For X-Men: First Class, my routine is a lot different. Portraying Alex Summers, I want to look as athletic as his character is in the comics. My trainer, Ed Chow, is one of the nicest people on the face of the earth, which is deceiving, because he is damn good at what he does.”
Check out the full feature in “The Thrill of the Game Issue”, out on stands February 10th.
