Since April we've known that Richard E. Grant (HUDSON HAWK) would be playing a "villainous mad-scientist type". However, this is the Marvel universe we're talking about, where "villainous scientists" outnumber fast food cashiers 10-to-1. Especially in the X-MEN universe. We even speculated that it could be Dr. Abraham Cornelius, one of the scientists of the Weapon X program.

Well Logan himself, Hugh Jackman, sent a photo of Grant in character, with a caption that read simply: "Rice". This seems to confirm that Grant'll instead be playing Dr. Zander Rice, one of the sadistic creators of X-23 (who was also confirmed for LOGAN somewhat recently). Have a look:

So, mystery solved! Maybe!

Anyway, what do you guys think? Good casting, bad casting, casting you kind of like? Sound off below!

Meanwhile, LOGAN will shnkkt his final shnkkt March 3rd, 2017.

Extra Tidbit: Dr. Rice's father was also part of the original Weapon X program.

Maybe Rice IS Mr.Sinister, since his abilities in some incarnations was shape shifting. He was there right from the beginning since he ages very slowly as well. Probably too far fetched though.

Grant is a stellar actor and the amazing cast (Grant, Merchant, Holbrook, etc.) is one of the reasons why I'm looking forward to the film as much as I am. I guess the mystery continues as to whose been cast as Mr. Sinister.

If you hadn't mentioned Hudson Hawk, I wouldn't have recognized him. I haven't seen him in years.
