2a4pkibScottish 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.
