The maniacal voice of Mister Sinister, Chris Britton, appears on the show to talk about voicing the role in the 90’s X-Men: The Animated Series, and the upcoming X-Men ’97, plus we cover the first appearance of The Nasty Boys in the issue X-Factor #75 by Peter David.
Born and raised in Toronto, Chris Britton first studied acting as a teenager. He graduated from York University with an Honors BFA in theatre. His voice has been heard in hundreds of commercials, narrations and animation series including the voice of Mr. Sinister in X-Men: The Animated Series and Soichiro Yagami in English language dub of the anime series Death Note. In film and television his talents as a character actor can be seen in roles such as the evil Rombout Kemp in Peter Greenaway’s Nightwatching, the KKK leader opposite Forest Whitaker in Deacons For Defense, the mad film critic in John Carpenter’s Cigarette Burns and in The Final Cut opposite Robin Williams.
