How many people is director Bryan Singer going to fit into his X-Men: Days of Future Past cast, The Wrap reports that Australian actor Josh Helman has signed on for a mysterious role.  The nature of Helman’s character is being kept under wraps, but he’s expected to be on set for several weeks so it’s not an unsubstantial part.  The 25-year-old Helman has been landing some significant roles as of late, as he had a small turn in last year’s Jack Reacher and also stars inGeorge Miller’s highly-anticipated Mad Max: Fury Road.  He previously appeared on the HBO miniseries The Pacific and had a role in 2010’s Animal Kingdom.

Singer’s full cast list for X-Men: Days of Future Past now includes James McAvoy,Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Ian McKellan, Patrick Stewart,  Peter Dinklage, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Omar Sy, Daniel Cudmore, Booboo Stewart, Fan Bingbing, Evan Peters, and Halle Berry.  The film opens in 3D on May 23, 2014.
