Adan Canto of "The Following" confirmed on Twitter this weekend that he has signed on for the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past.
Though he didn't say which character he will be portraying in the movie, he had a cryptic reply when asked about upcoming projects: "I might turn into a ball of fire if someone pisses me off." This leaves a few possibilities for his role - the Brazillian mutant Sunspot is one option or Canto could have been recast in the role of Pyro.
