James McAvoy is a Wanted Geek

James McAvoy attends the photocall for the movie Wanted at Adlon Hotel in Berlin, Germany on Tuesday.

Originally, James, 29, was rejected for the lead role of Wesley Gibson in Wanted.

“They wanted someone geeky. I screen-tested for the movie over a year ago and they never gave me the part. Then, it was about seven months later when they went, “Look, we’ve been trying to find someone who’s muscle-y who looks good and all that, but it just didn’t work with someone like that so they said, “Could you come and do it?” They basically just said, “You’re the runt of the litter and that’s what makes it work” so yeah, and that’s why I like it. So while I’m doing all this physical work, it’s important for me to remain small. I’m sure they want me to get all big, but it’s important to remain believably geeky,” he told Comingsoon.net back in February.
