Will.i.am is Kestrel (X-Men) -- EXCLUSIVE
Hip-hop producer/rapper Will.i.am is set to play Kestrel/John Wraith in the new X-men Origins: Wolverine movie, sources exclusively tell JustJared.com.
According to Wiki, Kestrel was part of Team X along with Wolverine, Sabretooth, Maverick, Mastodon, and Silver Fox. Kestrel is a powerful teleporter capable of getting the team out of sticky situations after their job was finished. His alter ego is John Wraith. Like the other members of Team X, he was given an artificial age suppressant so he was likely much older than he looked. His time as a secret agent and a member of the Weapon X program has left John somewhat paranoid. His house is a veritable death trap, as is the yard around it – John trusts no one.
They’re both even wearing a similar hat and have the beard/mustache thing goin’ on!
