James McAvoy Hints at Professor Xavier’s Hair Loss In X-Men: Apocalypse

It's okay, Charles, the '80s will do that to you.


X-Men sticklers will tell you – Professor Xavier is as bald as a cueball. But when you’re casting a leading man for your film about young, hip mutants, you couldn’t possibly make him shave his head. No one finds that appealing. Nope. But as timelines converge it seems the creators of the franchise may be starting to fold to the pressure. Will James McAvoy start losing those locks in X-Men: Apocalypse?

In a video interview with Huffington Post, McAvoy spoke about his history with the X-Men. “I was a fan of the cartoon growing up, I’d never read the comic books,” he said. “And I was a huge fan of Patrick Stewart’s just from Dune and Star Trek.”

Of course they did try and get some info out of him as it pertains to the next film, X-Men: Apocalypse.

“I got an email from Simon Kinberg, our producer/writer extraordinaire, who informed me that he was getting dead excited about stuff, but he didn’t want to divulge anything for a couple of weeks,” he told them. “So I really don’t know but it seems fairly global, if we’re talking Apocalypse. Maybe it’s just the character’s name, but I think the nature of the film is going to be fairly apocalyptic.”


“I have no idea what’s going on. I think I’m losing my hair finally,” he told them. “And, yeah, that’s kind of all I know.”
