While talking about gaining weight for the flick, James revealed that he wasn’t the first actor picked for the role.

“Night said he wanted me to get a bit bulkier, so I said, look, I can either get all skinny and muscly and I can do that real quick by losing some weight and doing reps and all that shit, or I can gain muscle but it’ll be more bulky than it’ll be ripped,” James expressed. “I didn’t have long. I came onto this show quite late in the day, I think Joaquin Phoenix was going to do it, but then I stepped in at the last minute because Joaquin pulled out.”

“You’ve got to be sensitive in your portrayal of people at all times. You’ve got to be conscientious and you’ve got to be aware of people’s faults,” James told the Press Association at the 2016 AFI Fest premiere of Split held at TCL Chinese Theatre on Tuesday (November 15) in Hollywood. “You’ve got to be aware of people’s good points and their graces.

James McAvoy Plays Kidnapper With 23 Personalities In M. Night Shyamalan's 'Split' - Watch Trailer!

The first trailer for James McAvoy‘s brand new movie Split has been released!

The film was directed by M. Night Shyamalan and also stars Haley Lu Richardson, Anya Taylor-Joy and Jessica Sula.

Here is the synopsis: While the mental divisions of those with dissociative identity disorder have long fascinated and eluded science, it is believed that some can also manifest unique physical attributes for each personality, a cognitive and physiological prism within a single being. Though Kevin (James) has evidenced 23 personalities to his trusted psychiatrist, Dr. Fletcher (Betty Buckley), there remains one still submerged who is set to materialize and dominate all the others. Compelled to abduct three teenage girls led by the willful, observant Casey (Anya), Kevin reaches a war for survival among all of those contained within him—as well as everyone around him—as the walls between his compartments shatter apart.

Split will hit theaters on January 20, 2017 – Watch the trailer below!
