Kevin Bacon Connection: Alex Gonzalez
Talk about making a blockbuster Hollywood debut. Spanish-language actor Álex González starred opposite Bacon, Jennifer Lawrence and James McAvoy in his first Hollywood feature – 2011’s X-Men prequel X-Men: First Class. Starring as one of Bacon’s baddies in the action film, the Madrid-born actor portrayed Riptide, a mutant who can spin his body really fast to create tornados. And González will likely return in the follow-up film, X-Men: Days of Future Past.
