That Scot James McEvoy while recently promoting the animated feature Gnomeo and Juliet in which he voices the Romeo slash Garden Gnome character: "Gnomeo" [..Jesus], as McEvoy was quite frankly defying logic and giving in-depth character analysis behind crossing Shakespeare with a ceramic garden ornament he also discussed his journey as Xavier / Proffesor X / Wheels:
"You look at the kind of main, defining characteristics of Professor X, of Charlie Boy, and you go, ‘Alright, he’s selfless. He’s a saint. He’s sexless, it seems. He’s egoless. He’s all about other people. He’s all about bettering the world and mutantkind and humankind.’ And so you kind of try and flip that on its head. You don’t make him an evil person, or anything like that, but you make him ego-driven, women-chasing, he likes a good drink. He’s not the reluctant leader that you kind of want all heroes to be. He actually kind of wants to be in charge, you know what I mean? And all of those things, just to kind of show a journey. So by the end of the movie he’s some way towards becoming Patrick Stewart[‘s version of the character], rather than just having the same guy at the beginning.”“We’re doing a tiny little tweak on the very end, finale thing between me and Michael [Fassbender], who plays Magneto. And we’re doing, what else are we doing? It’s all little bits and bobs and things that we dropped or didn’t know we needed or trying to fix a little scene here or there or tighten up a scene here or there. We’re doing a little bit on a boat at one point, which is going to be fun; then a lot of underwater stuff last week, which I can’t really tell you what it’s about, but it’s quite exciting. Just bits and bobs really."
