But really, he did film a hilariously emotional video for the postseason baseball coverage on TBS while advertising for his new fake show. His thoughtful rendition of "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" might make you tear up, just a lit ...

James McAvoy covers Out Mag, is ambivalent about Scottish independence

Sep 16 2014 7:41am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

James McAvoy covers the new issue of Out Magazine to promote The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby. This is the first interview/media piece where someone actually describes what happens in the film, so SPOILERZ if you want to know a major plotpoint: she gets pregnant and they lose the baby and they’re both left reeling. As for the rest of the interview… it’s really good. McAvoy is usually a good interview (as in, he likes to talk), but he’s usually bad with soundbytes and providi ...

'Frank' Talk: That's Michael Fassbender Inside That Big Head

Aug 14 2014 4:03pm CDT | Source: WNYC Music

There are a number of reasons why you shouldn't cast Michael Fassbender in your movie and have him wear a giant, papier-mâché head throughout, but most central is that he has a wonderfully emotive face (stern in Shame, wild-eyed in 12 Years a Slave, creepy in Prometheus), one that's central to his acting abilities and that happens to be as attractive as it is talented. Put the two together and the ...
