Sunspot Actor Adan Canto On X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST
Canto says he did a ton of research for his role as Bobby da Costa aka Sunspot in Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days of Future Past. "I just find I work better that way when I understand what's in his mind, where he's coming from. I pretty much took most of the things I read and I brought them to the table."
Fandango caught up with actor Adan Canto at a press event for his upcoming ABC comedy, Mixology and asked the up-and-comer about his role as Bobby da Costa in director Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days of Future Past. "It wasn't entirely a new world because I had followed the previous movies, but I did jump into the comic books world a bit to understand: Who is this guy? What's his life like?," said Canto on joining Fox's cinematic world of mutant superheroes. When asked about his preparation for the role, Canto shared, "I just find I work better that way when I understand what's in his mind, where he's coming from. I pretty much took most of the things I read and I brought them to the table. He's a fiery guy. There's a lot of passion with Sunspot – a lot of experiences that brought him to want to explode all the time, but he's a positive guy. There was just a lot of material – very helpful!”
Of course, longtime fans of the X-Men series will have to wonder if Canto did all of this research for what will amount to a simple glorified cameo? But to be fair, Singer (arguably) gave all the featured characters in X-Men and X2 their appropriate level of screen time. It wasn't until X-Men Origins: Wolverine and X-Men: The Last Stand that the series jumped the rails with overloaded, continuity confounding character dumps. We'll all be able to find out just how much screen time Sunspot will receive in 'Days of Future Past' when the film opens in North America on May 23.
