KEVIN BACON Playing SEBASTIAN SHAW in X-MEN: FIRST CLASS

One of our FOG! Agents from across the pond has revealed that Kevin Bacon's role in the upcoming X-Men: First Class is that of Sebastian Shaw, leader of the Hellfire Club.


Everybody cut, Everybody cut...

Speculation for Bacon's role included both Mister Sinister and Egyptian crime lord Amahl Farouk, but it is Shaw that will figure heavily in the film's plot.

Wikipedia describes Shaw as "a mutant, (who) possesses the ability to absorb kinetic energy and transform it into raw strength. He is the leader of the New York branch of the Hellfire Club, an exclusive secret society bent on world domination, although to the public, he is a legitimate businessman and ordinary human. He once funded the mutant-hunting Sentinel program to keep it under his thumb."

I would imagine an official announcement will be made next week at Comic Con.
