Scottish actor James McAvoy broke onto the scene as Mr. Tumnus the faun in The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, and made me feel strange for thinking that a goat-man was attractive. He’s since starred in Oscar-baiting films like Atonement and The Last King of Scotland, and kicked butt with Angelina Jolie in Wanted.
Why He’s More Than Just Eye Candy: He’s a pretty terrific actor. He was one of the best parts of Atonement, and held his own against Forest Whitaker in The Last King of Scotland. I definitely see an Oscar nom in his future. Plus, he’s a science-fiction nerd and wanted to be a priest or missionary when he was younger. Interesting.
