James McAvoy stars in BAM's "Cyrano de Bergerac" in Brooklyn

NEW YORK -- Actor James McAvoy stars in an athletic revival of a classic play opening Thursday night in Brooklyn.Known to many fans as Professor Charles Xavier in the "X-Men" movies, McAvoy reinvents the warrior-poet Cyrano de Bergerac.There's no fake nose, period costume or elaborate staging in this production, and the unconventional love triangle between Cyrano, Roxanne and Christian is brought to audiences with beatbox, rap and a poetry slam.McAvoy spoke to CBS2 about what it takes to make this familiar story feel fresh and how he approaches his character."It's a classic story, just not told classically. It's told modernly, and it's told vitally," McAvoy said. "I think there's anger in the original character ... You can't fight that much, you can't fight as much as he does without wanting to. And that's the thing, he wants to hurt himself. I think he's one of those guys, doesn't fight because he likes punching. He fights 'cause he likes getting hit and because he hates himself.""Cyrano de Bergerac" is at the BAM Harvey Theater in Brooklyn through May 22.

‘American Buffalo’ Does The Talking For Mamet, And James McAvoy As ‘Cyrano’ Says It All – Theater Reviews

Click here to read the full article. Offstage, and sometimes on, David Mamet can be infuriating and exasperating, as anyone who has witnessed his recent nonsensical, offensive media blitz can attest, and then along comes something like American Buffalo – possibly his greatest work, all due apologies to Glengarry Glen Ross – with a cast so in sync with the playwright’s “profane poetry” that for a couple hours it’s not impossible to put aside whatever it is Mamet thinks needs saying on Fox News these days. Superbly performed by Laurence Fishburne, Sam Rockwell and Darren Criss, with director (and longtime Mamet...

Whose words have beauty his looks may lack? Cyrano de Bergerac! - The Jamie Lloyd Company's production starring James McAvoy comes to BAM

On April 5, director Jamie Lloyd’s Oliver Award winning revival of “Cyrano de Bergerac” will begin performances at Brooklyn Academy of Music, having run in the West End to great acclaim. For the production, Edmund Rostand’s classic text has been newly adapted from its original French verse into English (still verse) by long-working playwriting-maestro Martin Crimp. James McAvoy embodies the title character wholly and imbues the brilliant wordsmith he plays with humor and humanity. The swagger of this Cyrano is different and the entire story feels - if not new - more urgent. The production is stealthy in its minimalism and inspiring in its palpable adoration of language.

James McAvoy really doesn't miss playing Professor X

James McAvoy probably isn't going to be joining the roster of actors returning to their famous superhero roles. The actor played Professor Charles Xavier in Fox's X-Men films, and since the first trailer for Doctor Strange 2 included Patrick Stewart returning to his older version of the character, it's natural to assume the door is open for McAvoy to return as well.

X-Men Professor X Star James McAvoy Breaks Silence on Doctor Strange 2 Rumors

James McAvoy addressed those Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness rumors about him coming back to play Professor X. During an Instagram Live conversation, fans kept asking him about the whispers and he flatly replied, "NO!" So, that should clear things up, or at least it should. As longtime MCU devotees know, the actors involved in these projects are under strict orders not to divulge any spoilers or plot details before the release of a movie. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness seems like an especially big entry in Phase 4 of the franchise. Spider-Man: No Way Home opened up the gates to the Multiverse. However, that seems to be only the tip of the iceberg. The trailer for the Doctor Strange sequel sees Patrick Stewart as Professor X or someone just like him. So, things are going to get pretty weird, which means expect the unexpected.

James McAvoy Says He Won’t Appear In ‘Doctor Strange 2’ & Doesn’t Miss His Old ‘X-Men’ Role

The “X-Men” franchise, alongside “Blade,” were the first big box office hits for superhero films featuring characters pulled from the pages of Marvel Comics, sort of the precursor to the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s launch with “Iron Man” in 2008. You might remember that Kevin Feige got his start working for The Donner Company, the producers of the “X-Men” films, and was directly involved with those first couple of installments before leaving to run Marvel Studios. After the merger with 21st Century Fox and Disney, Marvel got their hands on the rights to make new “X-Men” and “Deadpool” films.
