James McAvoy has played a lover, a mutant, an assassin, a soldier, a lover- pretty much everything!
Did we mention a lover! Lolz!
So, what is the versatile actor's dream role? Something we'd never guess in a million years! According to James:
"I’d like to play Gandalf."
Um, sorry, cutie, but didn't Ian McKellan already take that one?
The X-Men: First Class star is hoping they turn the book prequel into a movie! He says:
"It's called The Silmarillion! It’s a collection of poems and songs that chart the ancient history of Middle-earth. My true geek is coming to the fore, but they’re really, really beautiful stories.
In part of that is the genesis of Gandalf, or Mithrandir, or Stormcrow, or any of his many, many names. Anyway, maybe that’s the one!"
Hmm, young and handsome with a humongous staff and the magic touch? Sounds like a dream to us! LOLz!
