A new name has been revealed as part of the cast of Fox's "X-Men: Days of Future Past" - Evan Jonigkeit.

Jonigkeit ("Calendar Girl," "The Gift") recently revealed to MTV that he will be playing a younger version of Toad in the upcoming sequel.

"I read a lot of the comic books. I found out the storyline of my character, who is Toad. X-Men fans will know that Ray Park played him in the first movie, so it's a generation story of how he came to be."

He also says the character will be different from the version that appeared in the first "X-Men" film:

"The aesthetics of the character are much different, and I'm not really allowed to say a whole lot more than that. It's darker. I would say it's a darker tone."

Jonigkeit joins a cast that includes Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Hugh Jackman, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Halley Berry, Nicholas Hoult, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Lucas Till, Peter Dinklage, Omar Sy, Adan Canto, Evan Peters, Daniel Cudmore, Fan Bingbing, Boo Boo Stewart and Josh Helman.
