James McAvoy: 'I Had a Great Time' Filming 'Filth'

James McAvoy makes his way out of the BBC Radio 1 Studios after promoting his latest film Filth on Tuesday (October 1) in London, England.

The 34-year-old English actor recently talked about playing his bipolar character Bruce Robertson in the flick, which is an adaptation of the Irvine Welsh novel of the same name.

“I had a giggle doing this. A right old laugh,” James expressed to IGN. “There were only a couple of times that I felt a little bit squeamish about things. I had a great time. He’s in the mould of Richard III or Iago or Blackadder even. A latter-day example of that sort of manipulative underhand and yet kind of funny guy, that is completely horrible – and we wouldn’t ever want to have a pint with him – and yet for some reason, when Shakespeare writes him, we want to see him. And I think when Irvine writes him, you want to see him.”
