X-MEN: FIRST CLASS

X Meets MIB
To stop the threat Shaw and his team have put in motion, Charles, Erik and their young mutant recruits work with a secret group within the CIA, known as Division X, devoted to investigating the application of mental telepathy and paranormal power in military defense. The mutants' principal contacts there are the operative known only as MIB, played by Oliver Platt. "MIB has long been a laughing stock of the Agency because of his out-there investigations,” explains the award-winning and peripatetic actor. "When Charles and Mystique become ensnared with the agency, MIB diverts them to his division with a deft bureaucratic sleight of hand. Erik soon joins them and the X-Men flourish under MIB's protection.”

The mutants and MIB work with Moira MacTaggert, portrayed by Rose Byrne, a CIA agent at a time when female operatives were few in number. After Moira becomes among the first humans to witness the powers of mutants, she tracks down Charles, who helps Moira convince her superiors of the existence of mutants and that the agents should be working with them to stop Shaw. "Moira is very tenacious, ambitious and driven, as she must be to exist in a man's world,” says Rose Byrne, whose numerous film credits include Get Him to the Greek and the recent hit Insidious. "She is innovative in that way and inspirational. Pretty ballsy too.”
