Watch a Teenage James McAvoy's Acting Debut in "The Near Room" (1995)


You've seen Scottish actor James McAvoy in all kinds of roles, and most recently on the cover of the latest issue of Details, but chances are you missed his screen debut in 1995's The Near Room. He was only 15 when he got the part ( The New York Times described it as "a British crime drama in the noir tradition"). The highlight: Watch him punch a man in the face. The lowlight: Good luck understanding the thick accents.
