Evan Peters Cast As Quicksilver For X-Men
Another mutant added to cast of X-Men: Days Of Future Past...
Evan Peters has become the latest actor to be cast in X-Men: Days Of Future Past.
The American Horror Story and Kick-Ass star, 26, will play mutant Quicksilver in the latest instalment of the Marvel Comics movie franchise.
And director Bryan Singer broke the news that he will be joining Jennifer Lawrence, Hugh Jackman, Sir Ian McKellen et al in the movie via Twitter.
He wrote: "Thrilled to say #EvanPeters is joining #XMen #DaysOfFuturePast as #Quicksilver."

The casting move has prompted frenzied speculation among fans about whether or not he will also appear in The Avengers 2.
Quicksilver is already slated to appear in that movie, but no casting decision has been made. The X-Men and Avengers movie franchises are made by Fox and Disney respectively - and characters have not previously crossed over.
Singer tweeted a pic of Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique earlier this week.
