Is there any star more Christmas-y that Scottish charmer James McAvoy? Calling me via satellite from London, James was all aglow about the coming Holiday Season and the fact that his new animated film “Arthur Christmas” is about to open everywhere, like Santa Claus, the charming James is about to be everywhere at once. The film opens next week. Same day as “The Artist,” “My Weekend with Marilyn,” and “Hugo”! WOW! What a festive filmic day that is going to be!
James is a father now. He has a new little boy, the year and a half year old son, who he says, “Is too young to notice about Christmas yet. But NEXT year!”
He also mentions that a sequel to the box-office blockbuster “X-Men” first class is being planned with himself and Michael Fassbender back to repeat their roles as Professor X & Magneto!
My Christmas-y interview with James, who I’ve now interviewed I think at least five times, will be coming soon on www.youtube.com/StephenHoltShow.
Just in time for Christmas, I hope.
