Will.i.am Added to Cast of Wolverine Movie

by at . Comments
Another day, another big name added to the cast of X-men Origins: Wolverine.

Hip-hop producer/rapper Will.i.am is set to play Kestrel/John Wraith in the new film.

Kestrel was part of Team X along with Wolverine, Sabretooth, Maverick, Mastodon, and Silver Fox. This character is a powerful teleporter whose alter ego is named John Wraith. Similar to the other members of Team X, Kestrel was given an artificial age suppressant; he's likely much older than he looks.

What do you think of Will.i.am playing an X-Men? Is it a good casting choice?

William Stryker: You were sentenced to death for decapitating a Senior Officer. Your sentence was carried out by a firing squad at ten hundred hours. How'd that go?
