Omar Sy-New X-Man: Days of Future Past

Director Bryan Singer added some international flavor to the cast of X-Men: Days Of Future Past with the addition of French thespian Omar Sy into the family of mutants. So why the excitement and who is Omar Sy?

Comedian Omar Sy co-starred in the feel-good box-office blockbluster The Intouchables. Over the past ten years theaters in foreign markets have experienced a massive expansion. The film was a huge hit overseas, raking in over $400 million. An American remake is in the works. Most importantly, Omar Sy won the Best Actor Cesar du Cinema, the French equivalent of the American Oscars. He is the first Black man to achieve this victory.

X-Men: Days Of Future Past is in pre-production and is set to start filming next month. This will be Omar Sy's first English-language role, however who he will be playing in the film has not been released at this time.

Congrats on the Cesar victory, Omar and best of luck for the future.
