Jason Flemyng (Kick-Ass) has joined the cast of ‘X-Men: First Class’. He will be playing Nightcrawler’s father Azazel, a character that Flemyng described as “a teleporter.”
Azazel is the leader of an ancient mutant race who look like demons and can teleport by opening portals to other dimensions. Flemyng said the character will need a lot of makeup and will have a tail, which will be added in post-production. Nightcrawler has not been confirmed for the film yet, but it now seems likely he will be added.
