Believe it or not, but X-Men: First Class is still casting! At this point they must have, like, 15,000 mutants in their massive cast – and good news is they're adding at least one more. Deadline tells us that Edi Gathegi has signed on to play Darwin, a bi-racial (half-hispanic, half-black) mutant who comes with the power of reactive evolution. What is reactive evolution? Well it's a power that allows him to adapt to whatever environment he's in – like he'll grow gills if he's swimming underwater or gain night vision if in the pitch black dark.
