Kevin Bacon tapped to play unnamed baddie in ‘X-Men: First Class’

HollywoodNews.com: Actor Kevin Bacon has become the latest recruit to the Hollywood superhero craze – as an “X-Men” villain.

The cult actor has signed up to play an unnamed baddie in the upcoming prequel movie as Brit director Matthew Vaughn fills out his ensemble cast. He will be joined on “X-Men: First Class” by Jennifer Lawrence, who earned rave reviews for her performance in “Winter’s Bone.”

She will play Mystique, the sensual shapeshifting villain played in the original “X-Men” trilogy by Rebecca Romjin in revealing body paint.

The film, set to start shooting in London late in the summer, already boasts James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender in the lead roles of Professor Charles Xavier and Magneto.

It is the latest in a slew of films based on comic books, fuelled by the smash success of “Iron Man” and “Batman” movies.
