James McAvoy Says He Wasn't Aware of 'Split's Connection to 'Unbreakable' At First

James McAvoy stopped by Late Night with Seth Meyers on Tuesday (January 15) and revealed that he was “completely” unaware of the connection between 2016′s Split and 2000′s Unbreakable when he first signed on.

“I got the script [for Split] and I read it and loved it. Ultimately we reveal that it was linked to the world of Unbreakable, Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson and all that. I missed this completely,” the 39-year-old actor admitted.

“Two weeks in and I’m sitting there thinking, ‘jeez, M. Night Shyamalan really talks about Unbreakable a lot, you know?,” James joked. “One day he got really overt with it and the penny dropped and I got it. I pretended I knew all along.”

James also dished about preparing to play multiple personalities in the follow-up Glass, and being nervous to host Saturday Night Live next week – Watch more after the cut!
