Omar Sy joins X-Men: Days of Future Past

Omar Sy (The Intouchables) has joined the cast of X-Men in an unspecified role. Rumors are already circulating, of course, about which role Sy has been cast in. Some suggest he will play Bishop, the son of Aborigine mutant refugees with a distinctive "M" brand on their foreheads. Bishop also was present in the Days of Future Past comic arc and was intertwined with Storm. Since Halle Berry has pretty much been mentioned as returning as Storm it is plausible that Bishop will be a part of the movie.

The French born actor has a pretty extensive resume but a majority of his work is in French film and television. I haven't ever seen or heard of him before, so it's always nice to have a fresh face.
