Jason Flemyng has joined the cast of the upcoming superhero prequel X-Men: First Class.

The Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels star revealed that he was awarded the part of teleporting creature Azazel by the film’s director Matthew Vaughn.

Speaking to Empire Flemyng added: “Matthew showed me my costume just the other day. Now I swore I’d never be in heavy make-up again, but this role is going to involve it. But at least they said, ‘Don’t worry, we’ll add the tail in post [production]’.”
