Actor James McAvoy is set to appear on CBS’ award-winning The Talk this Wednesday, September 22, a talk show that features a panel of entertainment personalities discussing current events, pop culture, family, celebrities, and trending topics of the day. The show is hosted by Akbar Gbajabiamila, Amanda Kloots, Jerry O’Connell and Sheryl Underwood.
Over the years, McAvoy has made a name for himself in the film industry, most notably with his portrayal of a young version of Charles Xavier in the X-Men franchise following the 2011 film X-Men: First Class. Others will also recognize him for his remarkable performances in M. Night Shyamalan’s Split and Glass.
Most recently, McAvoy starred opposite Sharon Horgan in Together, a pandemic family drama shot over the course of 10 days that tells the hilarious and heartbreaking story of a family finding ways to survive … together. He also stars in the recently released My Son with Claire Foy, a thriller in which McAvoy isn’t given a script as his character follows the mysterious, chilling trail of his missing 7-year-old son.
McAvoy has some new voice work as well, including a role in the adventure video game Twelve Minutes alongside Daisy Ridley and Willem Dafoe. He reprises his role as Morpheus in Neil Gaiman’s audio drama The Sandman: Act II, which debuts on Wednesday.
Earlier this year, McAvoy appeared on an episode of The Great British Bake Off (as a part of the annual The Great Stand Up to Cancer Bake Off) and wowed audiences and judges with his skills in the kitchen.
