Remember the lone Black vampire from Twilight ?  You know, the one where fans were upset because the vampire was Black ?  Well, his name is Edi Gathegi . He wasn't in Eclipse , but he just landed a role in X-Men: First Class , which chronicles the beginning of the X-Men characters.

Gathegi, who is originally from Kenya, will play Darwin, the comic's first biracial character. reports:

The first bi-racial mutant (in the comic series), has the power of "reactive evolution," which allows him to adapt to any situation or environment. Plunged underwater, he'll grow gills, he'll gain night vision in pitch black and his skin grows fire retardant when burned.

While this is great -- I still need to know who play the young version of Storm !
