Anyone in the process of developing a Patrick Stewart bio-pic (we know you're out there somewhere), search no more for your leading man. For years, James McAvoy has been silently building a resume that pays homage to the man himself and he has proven to us again and again that he is capable of succeeding in even the most physically demanding, emotionally stirring, and age-defying Stewart roles. From Professor X to Macbeth, take a look at these uncanny side-by-sides. Then just close your eyes and picture McAvoy, with a clean-shaven head, accepting his Best Actor Oscar.
