Sir Patrick Stewart kicked off the role of Professor Xavier in the original X-Men series with James McAvoy stepping in to play his younger self in the follow-ups.
While Stewart is bald in the earlier films, Professor X had a full head of hair as a younger man. The time has come for McAvoy to get into full character.

X-Men: Apocalypse is set to hit U.S. theaters on May 27, 2016.
