They just can't get enough beast-related beauty on "Beauty and the Beast," can they? This is made evident by the casting of "Twlight" and "X-Men: First Class" actor Edi Gathegi in a recurring role.

Gathegi, who played the character of Laurent in "Twilight" and "The Twilight Saga: New Moon," will recur as Kyle, an agent from a top-secret organization (according to a report from EW.com). Kyle will appear later this season to use his good looks and killer instincts to make trouble for the heroes of "Beauty and the Beast." We can expect the character to be efficient, with no patience for wasted time, and capable of exploiting the weaknesses of those around him.

Obviously, this could be a very bad guy. The question is simply how much trouble will Kyle make for Vincent ( Jay Ryan) and Catherine ( Kristin Kreuk)? Since the character is expected to recur over several episodes, we could be looking at a lot of trouble indeed.

In addition to his role in the "Twilight" films, Gathegi is known for playing Darwin in "X-Men: First Class" and for a recurring role on "House" as Dr. Jeffrey Cole (the Mormon guy from the group of House's wannabe employees when the doctor did that whole reality-show hiring thing).
