Edi Gathegi cast in latest X-Men

July 28, 2010 – 31 year old Kenyan Edi Gathegi (now American) has been signed onto the latest upcoming edition of X-Men.

It comes hot on the heels of him being killed off by the werewolf pack in the sequel of Twilight.

Edi played Laurent in ‘Twilight’ and ‘New Moon,’ and the next time we see him will be in ‘X-Men: First Class’ which comes out next year.

According to reports, he will play the character ‘Darwin’, a mutant, whose powers are of reactive evolution; meaning he can adapt to any environment he is placed in.

The actor and heartthrob who wore fake dreadlocks to play a baddie vampire in Twilight will be direct in X-Men: First Class by Matthew Vaughn.

Veteran actors James McAvoy and Kevin Bacon will be part of the X-Men action which hits the big screens in June.
