James Mcavoy by Matt Irwin for Out Magazine, October 2014

Move over, Clooney! According to Michael Fassbender, there’s a new prankster-prone sheriff in town.
On the set of X-Men: Days of Future Past, Fassbender says he had to watch his back when McAvoy was around. “Oh, he’s lethal!” the star toldNylon Guys magazine. “You’ll find him hiding underneath cars, waiting for you. He once tried to break into my trailer through the skylight. It’s like being in one of those Pink Panther films, and he’s Cato jumping out of the freezer. Just when you think the day’s over, you come home to find James sitting on your toilet with a BB gun.”
If you’re noticing an uptick in McAvoy’s career (he next stars in The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby with Jessica Chastain), it’s because he’s taken the bull by the horns, so to speak. “For a long time, I was playing the normal guy in an exceptional world, or the normal guy who was in a relationship with someone much more weird and interesting,” McAvoy told the mag. “I was holding the audience’s hand, guiding them into a world they weren’t familiar with, keeping them onside when things got grotesque …. Basically I was letting everybody else do the fireworks.”
