James McAvoy Runs with the Olympic Torch!

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!

    Did you not see the film?
    She was one of those major cast members that died in the first film.

    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?

    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!
