Breaking Hair News: Crazy Hot James McAvoy Is Now Bald for ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’

*Sighs.* Breaking hair news!

It was bound to happen eventually, but finally seeing James McAvoy bald for his latest role in X-Men: Apocalypse as Professor X is a little heartbreaking.

The crazy hot 36-year-old Brit shaved his head today to better resemble the sexy bald Marvel comic hero Charles Xavier, aka Professor X, whose signature look is his shiny bald head.

To be quite honest, McAvoy doesn’t look horrible and we’re thankful, despite the fact that we’re now in mourning for his brown, slightly curly locks.

Director Bryan Singer posted this photo of McAvoy getting his head shaved, with the caption: “#Xavier reborn (in process ) #jamesmcavoy #XMEN #XMenApocalypse @xmenmovies”

McAvoy has played Charles Xavier/Professor X in two other X-Men movies (X-Men: First Class in 2011 and X-Men: Days of Future Past in 2014), but both times with a full set of hair, perhaps because the character was in his younger, more eclectic days.

X-Men: Apocalypse is set for theatrical release on May 27, 2016 and will star a slew of Hollywood A-listers like Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Rose Byrne, Oscar Isaac, Evan Peters, Olivia Munn, and Sophie Turner.

Channing Tatum and Hugh Jackman are also rumored to appear (according to IMDb).
