Default Mr. Sinister Casting Thread

If Mr. Sinister appears in X-Men 4, who do you think should play him?

From the list, Josh Brolin and Robert Knepper could be interesting as well

Personally I'd say Eric Mabius from Ugly Betty always kinda looked like Sinister, but not sure if he could do the personality, he just has that kinda pasty Sinister look, and given the right dark eye make up and if Mabius could pulling off the cold personality, he could be a chilling Sinister

15-20 years ago I would have liked to have seen Frank Langella as Mr. Sinister, but alas, the former Dracula/Skeletor actor is probably too old for the part now & the demands that would go with it.

Had a bit of a brain storm... now i have always been a bit of a Robert Knepper fan for the role of Mr.Sinister....

But now i have a new front runner... This comes because im a huge fan of this actor. But i couldnt figure what role he would be good at if he became a marvel character. At first i thought Loki then Electro.... but after watching G.I.JOE the best villian of all time.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt... there was something quiet sinister about his cobra commander, now i know commander was disfigured and crocky but think of Levitt playing the role as himself... Mr Sinister...

He would be brilliant

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is a good actor. Although I think he is a bit too young for Sinister. However, he is my top choice to play the Joker should the part be recast for Batman 3.

Sinister, I see being older and more.........sinister.

actually Mr Sinister is supposed to look Young that is the whole point... when they created him they had in mind a child that never grew up.

Daniel Craig is the wrong choice for Sinister... The only reason people like the idea of him is because his face vagually looks like the cartoon sinisters face.

I think he'd be a decent choice personally. I like his voice and manner.

Gordon-Levitt doesn't have that air of experience.

Woe, those images are uncanny, had no idea how similar in looks Strong is to Sinister.
