James McAvoy does press for 'The Last Station'

Below are a few photos of James from the November 22 press conference for The Last Station in New York. You can head on over here to check out the full set.

A new clip from the film is now online, but sorry folks, I can't embed it. You can watch it over on YouTube.

James also did an interview and discussed working on The Last Station and The Conspirator. Here's an excerpt from the interview:

JAMES MCAVOY has refused to work with actress wife Anne-Marie Duff in case they become "a target".

The Scots actor feared they would suffer in the spotlight the same way Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez or Liz Taylor and Richard Burton did.

But the couple - who met on the set of Channel 4's comedy Shameless - are finally appearing on the big screen together.

James, 30, said: "We've been offered a hell of a lot of parts playing opposite each other in films and TV and we just turn them down.

"If you do work together you put yourself up, you make yourself a target and you make your relationship a target and all of that. We're very keen not to do that.

"But in The Last Station we don't play opposite each other in the film. We don't really act with each other hardly at all."

James added: "It was nice to spend those two months together rather than spending those two months apart, while she's off somewhere doing God knows what and I'm off somewhere doing God knows what. So it was fine. It was quite easy with this one."

He's currently working on Oscar-winning director Robert Redford's latest film The Conspirator...He admitted Redford is working him hard - asking him to ditch his Scots accent and speak with an American one, even off the set.

"Bob wants me to stay in an American accent all the time," he winced. "I'm trying to but I just can't be bothered all the time.

"I'm trying to make Bob happy, but that's an exhausting task.

"I'll get there eventually, hopefully, one day. So, no. I'm not particularly method with either my accents or my acting."

..."This is the first time I've ever made a decision based on something else and that was partly because of Robert Redford. I wanted to work with him because he's a great director and has made some incredible movies." [The Daily Record via ONTD!]
