Omar Sy is the Latest Addition to X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST

Bryan Singer's Twitter account continues to be one of the more newsworthy corners of the Internet, and Saturday he announced another X-Men: Days of Future Past cast member: French actor Omar Sy, best known for his starring role in the 2011 film The Intouchables.

Like Peter Dinklage, announced as part of the cast last month, Sy is new to the X-movie franchise and his role is not yet known. Singer's Tweet reads, "Thrilled to welcome the brilliant #OmarSy from the amazing film #TheIntouchables to the cast of #Xmen #DaysofFuturePast!"

Sy won the César Award — the top French film honors — for Best Actor for The Intouchables. He's appearing in director Michel Gondry's Mood Indigo, out this year.

X-Men: Days of Future Past, directed by Singer and featuring a large cast including Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Patrck Stewart, Ian McKellen and Hugh Jackman, is scheduled for release on July 18. 2014.
