But history vary a little pleasures, he had finally declined the proposal : 20th Century Fox, Matthew Vaughn has asked me to play in X-Men: The Beginning,” he thus recounted. “There was a villain in the movie who was portrayed by Kevin Bacon. As I spoke German, it seemed logical for me to accept this role, given that I had already worked with him [Matthew Vaughn], but I believe that at this time, we both felt that… I just came to embody Blackwook in Sherlock Holmes, and it was starting to make a lot of bad guys in no time. Therefore we decided to abstain for this one.” As a reminder, Sebastian Shaw, a former nazi officer who had killed the mother of the young Magneto under his eyes, is a mutant powerhouse capable of absorbing the kinetic energy of the beings that surround it.
