Nightcrawler's Dad Will Be In X-Men: First Class

There's going to be more mutants you can throw a stick at.

  You can always count on X-Men: First Class to keep popping up in the news. There's been yet another character cast for the movie. Although, I'm not sure if you can call this one an actual mutant.

Superherohype has reported that Jason Flemyng will be playing a small role as Azazel. Azazel has been described as a "teleporter" and of course we all know he is also Nightcrawler's father. Apparently Flemyng was considered for Beast in X-Men 3 when Matthew Vaughn was attached to that. Looks like Vaughn has chosen another role for Flemyng.  
 
With the appearance of Azazel, what does this mean for the movie? We know Mystique is supposed to be in it. Will we be hearing Nightcrawler casting news soon?
