‘Twilight’ Alum Booboo Stewart Joins ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ Cast

By  | 



While fans of X-Men have been able to revel in the fact that both members of the original cast — like Hugh Jackman and Ian McKellen — and the prequel — like Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult — are pegged to return as their characters in X-Men: Days of Future Past, they can now find some solace in some of the new additions as well.

Daniel Cudmore, who played Colossus in X2 and X-Men: The Last Stand, appears to be one of the later talents added, as well as Chinese-born actress Fan Bingbing. But we think Teen.com readers will appreciate the third and last known fresh face: Twilight alum Booboo Stewart. Yes, the young star, who played werewolf Seth in the Kristen Stewart-led franchise, is now a part of the growing cast list. Though no one’s verbalized the news, director Bryan Singer released the following tweet that all but confirms its truth:

Booboo Stewart’s the last headshot on the bottom right! Hmm, wonder who he’ll play. In the meantime, since X-Men: Days of Future Past isn’t scheduled to hit theaters until some time in 2014, Booboo has plenty of other films to promote, including Space Warriors and An Evergreen Christmas, both tapped for release this year.
