Xavier Taking Magneto's Movie Roles Now
Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy: They're best friends, probably! The two have already shared scenes in X-Men: First Class and fluids with Keira Knightley, and now they're going to have a little trade for the lead in Danny Boyle's Trance remake. While Fassbender had been in negotiations for the role--that of an art heist inside man who gets amnesia and can't recall where he stored the goods, forcing his co-conspirators to put him in a hypnotic trance to remember--he's since dropped out, and now best friend James McAvoy is in early talks for it. Don't worry, though; there won't be any awkwardness between them. They're best friends forever (probably).
