Omar Sy, so great in last year’s “The Intouchables”, has joined the cast of “X-Men : Days of Future Past”.

Director Bryan Singer took to Twitter to announce the news, as he usually does.

The filmmaker didn’t say who Sy is playing but speculation is rife that he’s playing the character of Bishop, who in the comics is a member of a dystopian police force that traveled to the 20th century and joined the X-Men. In later comics, Bishop would turn against his teammates and become one of their main adversaries.
