Edi Gathegi for Darwin in "X-Men"?
TWILIGHT fans will remember actor Edi Gathegi’s portrayal of vampire Laurent, but now he’ll be slipping into an entirely new role. Deadline New York says Gathegi will join Matthew Vaughan’s X-MEN: FIRST CLASS as the mutant Darwin.
For those not familiar with the character, Darwin has the ability to adapt to any environment, called “reactive evolution” (thus his name). Some question whether the X-Men franchise needs more mutants packed into one film, while others will invariably love the idea. What say you?
