James McAvoy Runs with the Olympic Torch!

James McAvoy runs down Buchanan Street carrying the Olympic Torch during the leg between Stranrear and Glasgow early last month in Glasgow, Scotland.

The 33-year-old actor is one of thousands of people who received the chance to carry the Olympic Flame during a 70-day relay covering 8,000 miles.

Director Timur Bekmambetov recently told Indie Wire that he and his team made a major breakthrough in the scriptwriting process for Wanted 2!

While most of the major cast died in the first film, James‘ character is set to return for the action packed sequel. We can’t wait!

    One of my favorite actors!! As long as he is in Wanted 2, I’ll be watching.

  • soiwatched

    McAvoy is awesome.

  • Nilly

    No to the red beard. What’s with all the beards all of a sudden? It suits like maybe 5% of all the guys who try to grow one. Not only is his another color than his hair, it’s also pretty weak. We still see it’s him so it’s pretty pointless…no?

  • starsh

    Nilly, silly, he grows one because maybe he likes not shaving every day. because maybe he likes it. etc So that is a point, to him!
