While we’ve seen James McAvoy take on the role of Professor Xavier in the X-Men franchise twice now, we have yet to see what happens to rob us of these beautiful, somewhat flowy locks.
X-Men: Apocalypse will be our first look at a bald young Professor X, and in preparation, 20th Century Fox has released a fun, quick video of McAvoy shaving his own head. And to make the whole thing even better, Bryan Singer (still blech in most of our books, but just think of him as a talking phone stand) FaceTimed Patrick Stewart to watch. Stewart is surprisingly supportive— I was expecting more giddiness— but it is curious what “use” he has for requesting McAvoy’s hair.
Now if you need me, I’ll be replaying McAvoy calling Patrick Stewart “baby” in my head for the rest of ever.
