Joy Holmes
The way he switched between the personalities when necessary was amazing. He is completely amazing.
Jenna Denjern
I always forget he's Scottish. He always pulls off any accent he does very well, especially his British and American accents.
Was so disappointed that the final personality wasn't Charles Xavier.
Nathan Wood
Two things from this video made me want to see this. "...I just ate a hotdog" and ".....etcetera!"
Can I kiss you? **kiss** Now you're pregnant
Kingston Gapate
Stop being so talent, etcetera.
Shoff 29

Supashya Roy Chowdhury
He is so good looking this guy can carry any look from bald to hairy.
Tati Bry
I'm a simple child, I see McAvoy and I click.
Just came back from watching the movie, oscar worthy performance by James
Ezra Al Barra

Israel P
Most underrated actor of our generation, hes been deserving of an Oscar for a long time already, his Professor X is perfect.
Jamyl Dobson
He was INCREDIBLE in the film! I was blown away! He's such a gifted actor.
I think I'm pregnant now

Idespise myjob
James is hands down my favorite actor in the world right now.

Tianna Perry
He's soo hot! I mean talented.... etcetera. 😍😍😍
Andrew SnG
I think his accent was stronger before. I really hope he doesn't end up losing it altogether. It is one of his most attractive features, after his talent (that goes without saying) and his sexi attitude.

"i just ate a hotdog"
Glad to know that this dude look less psychotic with hair
Kirkland Bond
He was good in x-men, but this performance put him on the map.
I love his accent

James McAvoy can literally carry every movie he's in. He'd better get a reward.
James is an amazing actor, Split wouldn't have been as good as I thought without him.
Victoria perbetsky
Lord have mercy he is so handsome and so damn talented
PROPOSAL: James McAvoy and Tatiana Maslany chatting about playing so many characters.
Alana K.
just saw this movie he did an amazing job the way he just went back and forth between those personalities was crazy!
No andno
I've loved him since Narnia 😊
he needs an oscar... etc.
solita ugly
Hedwick was the funniest and best role he did good !!
AaiCee Clare
80% of the actors from Britain and the UK are ten times better at acting than their American colleagues.
Slime Clouds
He's so attractive.
Lain Oh
If he wanted to talk to someone with DID and who is very open about it, he should have spoken to Jess and her Alters from MultiplicityandMe. I think they would have had a very interesting conversation.
I watched Split. Give the man an Oscar! What an incredible talent!! Please do NOT send me links to the movie online.
James McAvoy is an actor who's extremely gifted, charming, *Etcetera* !!!
Raymundo Obando
What a badass haha he's a great actor
Is it just me or does James Mcavoy remind me of Finn Balor
This movie was so amazingly done and his acting was so great that if he doesn't receive an award I'll be highly disappointed
Charity Sparks
Very talented actor
He did a fantastic job and he carried this movie all the way. This was a great movie.
Radoslava Mihaylova

Ally Cat
Where is his Oscar nomination?'
anneliese conway
Just saw this movie Saturday and let me tell you it was one of the best. It was so well played and just amazing in general!! It is very emotional as well. I would definitely give it a 5 star rating.
Effy Urie
I would NOT mind be kidnapped by him
So charming
Mary Kkillourhy
The Oscar snub was criminal. What a farce!
He's such an OUTSTANDING actor, loved this movie. He brought the characters to life.

Jacob Parra
He did such a great job

Brandon Roy
Could split qualify for the next Oscars? I know it was shown at AFi, but I don't know if it had a qualifying run before deadlines for this upcoming oscars or not.
Joshua Ortiz
Get him a Oscar
Kira L
He so fine tho🤔
James McAvoy was amazing in Filth, so I'm sure he will put on a top notch performance in Split.
Ana Nimity
I have always loved James McAvoy but I love him more now. This man is so amazingly talented. I agree with those who said he should win an award. I love the movie and I especially loved him!!!!!!
Marcella Andrade
Hedwig was my favorite character... it was hilariously brilliant. Interesting to know that was his most difficult role to play 👏
He's very professional
great movie should receive an Oscar for sure shame on you Hollywood
Atara Menashe
Give this man Oscar
honestly amazing performance, oscar-nomination worthy 👏
If he doesn't win any award for Split I'm gonna blow a hole in my head. Amazing actor who deserves to be in more movies than he already is.
Have y'all ever seen Last King Of Scotland? MUST WATCH!
I would marry this man in a heart beat
Amazing performance, he better win something
Symone Ryder
he did such a good job! it was funny when he was Hedwig but the fact he played so many and in a second is pretty amazing.
Tri Monster
He actually played 24 roles, including the beast
Josh Depagnier
mcavoy is such an amazing actor I thought he was great in narnia and x-men but when I saw his outstanding work in split I had a new respect for this absolutely talented actor I think split is one of m nights best not better than unbreakable but better than signs and I think a big reason for it (but not the only reason) was mcavoy if you haven't seen this movie you have to see if not for the movie itself then go see it to see an amazing performance from mcavoy and the ending
Lauren Becker
McAvoy deserves an Oscar for his portrayal of Kevin Wendell Crumb's various personalities in Split! This movie is remarkable in it's concept and delivery. I don't see why people need to have it explained, because if you pay attention, it all comes together. I've never seen Unbreakable, nor M. Knight's other productions, but I'm certainly interested if he is making a trilogy. I'm now a huge fan of Mr. McAvoy! He pulls off the truest American accents incredibly. I never knew he was Scottish until I watched an interview!

Is the quality a James McAvoy movie or Shymalan movie?
Dannyll Kannan
Oooh he's sexy 😍😍😍. Is the movie any good? I'm kinda iffy about it, cause I don't really like the directors other work .
He nailed that part... excellent acting.
Clair Thomas
He was incredible in this movie!
Watched the Movie a Few minutes ago was actually Pretty funny most of the time for me wasn't really Scary but more........Creepy
He was really good in Split!!!! Good looking man!!!!
Leeann Mussatt
Such a great job! I didn't even think his accent would be so prominent, cause all I've seen him in is split and the xmen. Amazing!
isaiah ashman

Marcus Cristy

Justin McNeil
lets get real, he only really payed 4 or 5 characters in the movie-- a far cry from the 23 everyone keeps praising him for. don't get me wrong, he still did a fantastic job.
Fernanda Pereira
"i just ate a hot dog"

Hunter Eaves
The way he carries himself between characters, is just absolutely amazing. The story is epic as well!

That dance scene as Hedwig, it was funny and scary at the same time.
