Sir Patrick Stewart Likes to Watch, and This May Be the Best Thing to Come Out of X-Men: Apocalypse


The reviews for X-Men:  Apocalypse are rolling in from across the pond, and so far they’re a resounding “meh”. Admittedly, this particular franchise isn’t my thing, despite starring several favorites — Fassbender, Hoult, Turner, Isaac, Byrne, and at the top of the list:  Sir Patrick Stewart and James McAvoy. That said, I’ll watch the publicity rounds and in particular, this video, all day long. McAvoy heads to his trailer to prep for playing a more Stewart-like Xavier, Sir Patrick pops in to watch the big moment, and cheer James on.


McAvoy:  “I’m finally understanding what it’s like to be you.”

Stewart:  “The difference is that I looked like that when I was 19.”

Me:  “Who’s looking at your head?”

    Patrick Stewart has a beautifully shaped head. Hair would just distract. Also: voice, talent, face and ThatBod.

    Aww, James needs some aloe vera on his razor burned noggin. I could have sworn he had already shaved his head for Xmen. I guess
    I mis-remembered.

      i think he did, and then they decided they dont want him to be bold after all, and then used some sort of wiglet thingy. but i might be misremembering it.

        There must be something. We can’t both be misremembering the same thing. Unless we’re the same person. <3

      No he definitely did. I do remember. Maybe this is a video from then and they are just now releasing it?
