James McAvoy is from Glasgow and has the sweet accent to prove it. He got his start in UK's Shameless. There he met Anne-Marie Duff who played Fiona and later married her.
Of course, I've loved him since BECOMING JANE. Perhaps you loved him best in Starter for 10 or X-Men. Maybe even Penelope. Yet, he's wonderful in period pieces like Atonement too. He is one actor that can inspire all short men that they can make a great leading man. James is really showing he can play all sorts of roles. He's fit and oh so genuine in Danny Boyle's TRANCE in theaters now.
