James McAvoy -

Scottish stud James McAvoy gives a brooding, intense look on the August 2008 cover for Details magazine, on newsstands next week. Here are some of the highlights from the Wanted star’s interview:

On wanting to be the next Sexiest Man Alive: “I want to be like Matt Damon and do a hugely successful thinking-man’s action franchise like Bourne.”

On the types of movies he likes to star in: “Hugh Grant is f—ing great and he’s funny. I like romantic comedies. I’ve been in one and I f—ing loved it. I got to show off and I got to be a d—. It’s always fun to play d—. That’s why I loved Last King (of Scotland) —I got to be such a wanker.”

On being cast in Wanted alongside Angelina Jolie: “I think inside all actors, there’s a kid who secretly yearns to jump off buildings and say ‘Yippeekayay, motherf—er!’ I also thought that the fact that they were willing to cast someone like me showed a willingness to step outside the usual action-movie realm.”
