Bryan Cranston: "X-Men" Super-Villain ?

Emmy award-winning Actor Bryan Cranston ("Breaking Bad"), has confirmed interest in playing a specific "X-Men" 'super-villain' from the Marvel Cinematic Universe for Fox :

Cranston wants to play 'Nathaniel Essex' aka 'Mister Sinister', a super-villain debuting in Marvel Comics' "Uncanny X-Men" #221 (Sept. 1987) created by writer Chris Claremont and illustrator Marc Silvestri.

The character is a genetically altered human with super physical/mental abilities, including telepathy. He is also able to manipulate the minds of others and capable of energy projection through telekinesis.

Using genetic material from the mutant 'Courier', 'Mister Sinister' gained complete control of his body at the cellular level, allowing him to shape-shift, teleport, regenerate, be virtually immune to injuries and have a prolonged lifespan.

Mister Sinister is also a scientific genius, with expertise in the fields of biology, genetics, cloning, physics, and engineering. 

He is a master manipulator and planner, with decades of genetic research at his command, going to great lengths to preserve his powers through elaborate tech means...

...including 'conditioning' people to be his 'hosts', in the event of his demise...
