    Studio bosses apparently have their eye on the smouldering star to play a part in their next action-packed flick, X-Men: First Class, and have reportedly been checking out his availability.

    The Hollywood heartthrob would join a glittering line up including James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender, were he to land the role.

    Actor Benjamin Walker was reportedly in negations for a part, but is rumoured to have dropped out of the running.

    And instead gorgeous Taylor has stepped straight on to the film bosses’ radar.

    But he had better strike while the iron’s hot! Director Matthew Vaughn is expected to start shooting this summer, with a release planned for June 2011.
