Every year, the glittering lights and unique experience of Broadway lures Hollywood actors to the East Coast; some are veterans of the stage and others are making their Broadway debut. Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad), James Franco (This is the End) and Chris O’Dowd (Bridesmaids) all made their Broadway debuts earlier this year, with O’Dowd receiving a Tony nomination for Of Mice and Men and Cranston winning a Tony for All The Way. Neil Patrick Harris (How I Met Your Mother), who hadn’t been on Broadway since his 2004 run in Assassins, scored his first Tony nomination and win for Hedwig and the Angry Inch this summer.
The Broadway lineup for the end of the year hosts a number of Hollywood actors making their Broadway debuts, and they are joined by an illustrious group of Broadway vets returning to the stage.

After becoming Marvel’s biggest-franchise starter at the global box-office by overtaking the haul of 2008’s Iron Man earlier in the week, James Gunn’s space opera Guardians of the Galaxy has now become the first release of 2014 to hit $300 million domestically and has also crossed the $600 million mark worldwide. Having opened in Japan yesterday, and with a Chinese release still to come, Guardians certainly has a good chance of becoming the highest-grossing comic book movie of the year, with The Amazing Spider-Man 2 on $708 million, Captain America: The Winter Soldier on $714 million and X-Men: Days of Future Past on $745 million.
Guardians of the Galaxy sees Gunn directing a cast that includes Chris Pratt (The Lego Movie) as Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana (Star Trek Into Darkness) as Gamora, Dave Bautista (Riddick) as Drax the Destroyer, Bradley Cooper (American Hustle) as Rocket Raccoon, Vin Diesel (Fast & Furious 6) as Groot, Benicio Del Toro (Sin City) as The Collector, »

So you’ve seen Guardians of the Galaxy, right? Of course you have – almost everyone has by now, or so it seems at least.
Guardians was one of the summer’s true box office triumphs, and one of the most remarkable. Transformers: Age of Extinction may not have received critical raves, but the popularity of its predecessors all but guaranteed a monster haul. Captain America: The Winter Soldier was huge, but Cap had previously starred in his own movie and shown up in The Avengers. The Amazing Spider-Man 2, X-Men: Days of Future Past, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes – they were all part of already-successful franchises that gave them an advantage in the moneymaking stakes.
Not so with Guardians. A property that was practically unheard of prior to Marvel announcing its Phase Two master plan, it wasn’t negativity that led some to surmise it could »

Brace yourselves, X-Men fans: a staple of the comic books may be emerging in director Bryan Singer’s upcoming sequel X-Men: Apocalypse. Ever since James McAvoy was first cast as the young Professor X in X-Men: First Class, fans have been asking when he’ll be taking on Charles’ signature Mr. Clean-esque hairstyle. It’s kind of a silly thing to harp on (does it really matter that much if Professor X has hair or not?), but following the events of the recent X-Men: Days of Future Past, it appears that the character may start to look more like his comics counterpart, as McAvoy recently said he thinks Apocalypse is when his character will finally go bald. More after the jump. While speaking with Huffington Post in a recent interview, McAvoy talked a bit about the upcoming X-Men sequel X-Men: Apocalypse and dropped this tidbit: “I’ll be older in this one. »

It was meant to expand Sony’s Spidey franchise into a fully-fledged cinematic universe, but instead The Amazing Spider-Man 2 disappointed fans and critics, as well as underperforming at the box office, becoming the lowest-grossing instalment in the series, and trailing behind Captain America: The Winter Soldier and X-Men: Days of Future Past in terms of 2014’s superhero movies (with Guardians of the Galaxy still on release, it looks likely that James Gunn’s space opera will also overtake it). So, what went wrong? Well, according to Andrew Garfield, studio interference played a big part:
“I read a lot of the reactions from people and I had to stop because I could feel I was getting away from how I actually felt about it,” Garfield tells The Daily Beast. “For me, I read the script that Alex [Kurtzman] and Bob [Orci] wrote, and I genuinely loved it. There was this thread running through it. »

We suspect that when he signed up to play Charles Xavier in X-Men: First Class, James McAvoy committed himself to at least three films. The third of those is going into production next year, as X-Men: Apocalypse looks set to build on the success enjoyed this year by X-Men: Days Of Future Past.
Chatting to The Huffington Post, McAvoy has confirmed "I'll be older in this one", adding that "I think I'm losing my hair finally". He's still pretty much in the dark on the film, though, although he has been in touch with writer/producer Simon Kinberg.
What did Kinberg say? "He was getting dead excited about stuff, but he didn't want to divulge anything for a couple of weeks ... it does seem fairly global, if we're talking apocalypse. Maybe it's just the character's name, »
James McAvoy has now played iconic X-Men patriarch Charles Xavier twice on film, but the actor has managed to keep his head of hair intact throughout both X-Men: First Class and this year’s X-Men: Days of Future Past. That’s a surprising feat given that the character has traditionally been bald both in comics and previous films. However, according to McAvoy himself, his days of sporting luscious locks while playing the telepath may finally be behind him.
While promoting his next film, The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby, McAvoy was asked by The Huffington Post about the next installment in the franchise, X-Men: Apocalypse. The actor admits that he doesn’t know many details about it yet, as things are still being kept under wraps, but he does talk a bit about his hair situation:
“I’ll be older in this one. I think I’m losing my hair finally. »

James McAvoy has now played the character of Charles Xavier on two occasions in X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past, yet both times he has had a full head of hair. In the comics the character has always been bald and has been portrayed by Patrick Stewart in most of the X-Men films with a bald head. Whilst promoting The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby, McAvoy has revealed that he may in fact finally lose the hair himself for 2016’s X-Men: Apocalypse.
In an interview with The Huffington Post, McAvoy was asked about Apocalypse being set in 1983, ten years after Days of Future Past, and said: “I’ll be older in this one, I think I’m losing my hair finally. And, yeah, that’s kind of all I know.”
The actor says he doesn’t really know much about the project as of yet, but has been »

While people still wonder if Jesse Eisenberg is going to be bald as Lex Luthor in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, James McAvoy, who plays the young Professor X in X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past, thinks he will shave his scalp down for his next appearance as the character in X-Men: Apocalypse.
While he can't say much about the character's arc this time around, or what the storyline will contain, James McAvoy did tease the upcoming sequel, explaining that director Bryan Singer is allowing Charles Xavier to mature quite a bit.
"I'll be older in this one. [And] I think I'm losing my hair finally. And, yeah, that's kind of all I know."
It actually sounds like the actor doesn't know much more than we do. He hasn't seen the script yet, explaining:
"I got an email from the [producer/writer Simon Kinberg] who informed me he was getting dead excited about stuff, »
James McAvoy sounds like he's going to be going bald. The X-Men: Days of Future Past star is set to reprise his role as Professor Charles Xavier in Bryan Singer's X-Men: Apocalypse, set for release in 2016. The star hints that this time, however, he's going going to be looking a bit more like the comic book iteration of Professor X. »
James McAvoy has done a truly spectacular job establishing himself within the X-Men franchise as the younger version of Professor Charles Xavier . even under the pressure of living up to the performances of the great Patrick Stewart. But while the Scottish star has brought amazing emotional levels to the character in both X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past, one key aesthetic element that has been completely missing is the trademark chrome dome. That will finally be changing in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse. This little scoop was provided by James McAvoy himself, who was recently a guest on Huffpost Live and spilled the beans about his bald future. While he makes it sound like the decision to have him shave his head has not yet been made 100% official, his phrasing also suggests that it has been discussing with the franchise.s writers and producers. Said the actor, "I »
While we are still a couple of years away from the release of X-men: Apocalypse, we already know that Bryan Singer is getting ready to roll on the production in 2015, meaning the stars of X-men: Days Of Future Past should soon find out what is in store for them in the sequel to one of the best movies this summer. Michael Fassbender has ideas about where Magneto should go and now it appears that James McAvoy may have some clues for his future as Charles Xavier. During a recent appearance on »

Despite a positive response from many viewers, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was (for others) one of the biggest disappointments of the summer 2014 box office. Reviews for the film were equally divisive (read our Amazing Spider-Man 2 review) – celebrating director Marc Webb’s principle cast and use of blockbuster effects while criticizing the movie’s choppy and underdeveloped storyline. As a result, in a summer where competing superhero movies like Captain America 2, X-Men: Days of Future Past, and Guardians of the Galaxy, all exceeded (or at the very least met) expectations, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 had trouble living up to Sony’s “His Greatest Battle Begins” hype – even though the final film still provides an ...
