While Helman's role is being kept under wraps, it may prove significant given that the actor is expected on set for several weeks.
Like almost every Australian actor who has made the transition to American studio movies, Helman started out on the long-running Aussie series "Home and Away." He started gaining more attention after his breakout turn on HBO's "The Pacific" and the acclaimed crime drama "Animal Kingdom," which led to a supporting role opposite Tom Cruise in "Jack Reacher."
"X-Men: Days of Future Past" hits theaters May 23, 2014.
