If James McAvoy isn’t a sight for sore eyes I don’t know who is! The 32-year-old was joined by fellow cutie Jamie Bell on the set of their new movie Filth on Monday, January 23, 2012 in Glasgow, Scotland. McAvoy takes the lead in the crime/drama a bipolar bigoted junkie cop who manipulates and hallucinates his way through the festive season in a bid to secure promotion and win back his wife and daughter.
In this film, based on a novel by Irvine Welsh, Bell plays the role of a crooked cop named Ray Lennox. Bell spoke to TeenHollywood.com recently about his role and whether or not he had to do any research.
No because the policeman part doesn’t actually matter. We could be builders or plumbers. That’s not the point. It’s actually McAvoy’s movie. He’s the one that has the really dark transformation.
I’ve never seen him play that kind of f**ked up character before. He’s all on drugs and all that and a bit crazy so I’m really excited to work with McAvoy. It’s going to be a real transformation for him.
My character is on the shady side of life for sure.
The Jon S. Baird directed film also stars Imogen Poots and Imogen Poots.
