In an interview with Variety, star Sam Richardson, known for his work on the acclaimed production “Veep” and recent stop-motion animation “MODOK”, commented on which X-Men member would like to perform in theaters – and the the answer was quite categorical: Hank McCoy, aka Beast.
The reason for wanting to play him is the similarities the mutant has to Richard Splett, a character experienced in the aforementioned comedy.
“I think the Beast is a big, blue, hairy Richard Splett,” he commented.
