Kevin BaconThere is confirmation to a popular rumor going around that Kevin Bacon will be appearing in the upcoming X-Men prequel/reboot movie X-Men: First Class. Nobody know who he's playing but he'll definitely be a villain and one of the more prevalent guesses is that he'll play the 90's X-Men villain, Mr. Sinister. Of course, this is all speculation.

For those unaware, the new movie is taking the Batman Begins approach to the X-Universe in which it sort of serves as a prequel to the previous X-Men movies. If successful, it will become an alternate universe like the Star Trek movie in 2009.

Feel free to guess in the comments what role Bacon might play. The good news is that other actors in the movie including James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender and even Jennifer Lawrence (who has just been cast as the young Mystique) are each only one degree to Kevin Bacon.
