James McAvoy Shaves His Head for 'X-Men: Apocalypse'

NOW he looks like Professor X.

Here it is, the shaved head you've been waiting for. James McAvoy is preparing for his role in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse, and that means he's getting his head nice and smooth and ready for the part.

Director Bryan Singer posted a photo to his Instagram Friday night showing McAvoy getting his head shaved to look more like his comic book counterpart. McAvoy has so far played the character in the '60s and '70s, and the next movie takes place in the '80s. And as his character ages, his hair disappears. Here's a closer look at the full picture along with a side-by-side with Patrick Stewart, who has so far played the older version of Professor X.
