Josh Helman has become the latest actor to be cast in Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days of Future Past. While TheWrap.com says the Pacific Rim actor's specific role in the film is being kept a "secret" for now, they do suggest that he will be part of multiple weeks of filming in the production. That should translate to no bit role or cameo...Feel free to speculate on which character Helman could play down below.
This latest chapter in 20th Century Fox's X-Men saga stars Ian McKellen, Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Peter Dinklage, Omar Sy, Halle Berry and Daniel Cudmore. Singer is back behind the camera.
Plot Concept: The film is based on the comic book storyline "Days of Future Past," which ran in Uncanny X-Men #141 and 142 back in 1981 during Chris Claremont and John Byrne's run and introduced the idea of an alternate future for Marvel's mutants that grew out of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants killing an important senator, leading to a future where all mutants are hunted by Sentinels.
X-Men: Days of Future Past will strike theaters on May 23, 2014.
