Edi Gathegi

  1. Daniel Henney, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, 2008.   The Kenya-born Gathegi read for the superhuman mercenary  Agent Zero. An X-Men fan, Henney  loved being a villain. “There are no restrictions playing it, allowing you freely to express it, so you can act how you want to.”
  2. Caleb Landry Jones, X-Men: First Class, 2010. Second time lucky. Gathegi read for Cassidy/Banshee – and won Darwin/Armando Muñoz… transforming into  CGI   gills and concrete skin.  CLJ became Banshee – all ultrasonic screams, sonic bursts, blasts and sonic waves.  Perfect, he said.  “I’ve got red hair and freckles, I’m not gonna be Batman, Robin or Spider-Man.”
