It seems that one actor is moving from a vampire franchise to a comic book franchise with a new film role. Deadline New York is reporting that Edi Gathegi has joined the cast of X-Men: First Class.

Gathegi will play Darwin, who was said to be the first bi-racial mutant, has the power of "reactive evolution," which allows him to automatically adapt to any environment he's place in. For example, his skin will become flame-retardant when he is burned.

Matthew Vaughn is directing the film, which is being written Jane Goldman.
