    This just made getting from James McAvoy to Kevin Bacon a whole lot easier.

    Rumors that Bacon would be joining the cast of director Matthew Vaughn's ambitious X-Men prequel, X-Men: First Class have been spreading across in the online world for several weeks. And now a source tells E! that this is indeed the case.

    While info on his role is still unclear, the veteran actor is said to be playing a villain who goes up against both McAvoy's Charles Xavier and Michael Fassbender's Magneto. FIlming is set to begin in London this fall.

    What do you think? Is Bacon really X-Men villain material?
