Tomorrow, British actor Nicholas Hoult's pristine visage will sweep across movie screens worldwide as budding genius Hank McCoy in X-Men: First Class. But as every good fanboy and girl knows, Hoult will mutate before our eyes into the monstrous creature known as Beast (proof is in the trailers, kids). But before those lagoon-blue eyes and razor-edge cheekbones vanish under bytes of CGI and mounds of prosthetic fur, check out Hoult on the cover of our June/July Outsiders issue, looking every bit the dapper young man he's become since first melting our hearts in 2002's About a Boy.
