Here’s something guaranteed to put a smile on your face on this Friday morning: James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender doing impressions of their “X-Men” costars Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen — to their faces. Come to think of it, if there ever was going to be a movie made about the glorious friendship between Patrick and Ian — and yes, that is a movie I would totally see — James and Michael could totally play them in their younger years.

Yes, that is James McAvoy — the hot Scotsman from “Atonement” and “Wanted” — not some random homeless hipster on the cover of Nylon Guys. Do we approve of this beard? Keep reading »
“If I were on a date with one of your readers, I’d declare, ‘Let’s go ice skating!’ At some point, I’d definitely try to feel her up and we’d have dinner. Yes, I think it would go ice-skating, boobs, dinner.”

1. Christian Bale Why He Made The List: Yeah, so there’s that pesky assault charge that’s turning out to be a little overblown. The Dark Knight star is having a bit of a bad week — until now.

3. James McAvoy Why He Made The List: Um, that Scottish accent? Which he has the ability to hide flawlessly at the drop of a hat? Those boyish good looks? A little movie called Atonement. Yeah.
4. Josh Peck Why He Made The List: Like his Wackness costar Olivia Thirlby, this may just be the former teen star’s breakout year. He was the chubby kid on some kids show we of course never watched — now he’s all grown up and doing sexy shower scenes. Sweet! Keep reading »
Starring Angelina Jolie, James McAvoy, Morgan Freeman, Common
I was very excited to see Wanted because it stars two of my most favorite sexual beings ever: James McAvoy and Angelina Jolie. I dragged our usual “We See Chick Flicks” scribe, Lesley, out to see the movie on Friday night and needless to say, I was a bit worried at first that she would never speak to me again. The first 10 minutes are intensely violent and bloody, but after that, the part of your brain that makes you gag when you see a bullet enter a skull in slow motion starts to deaden a little, and the rest of the movie is pretty easy to watch. Unless of course you don’t like knives… Keep reading »
