There's a four-leaf clover in McAvoy's logo and a bit of Irish sprinkled on the menu, but McAvoy's doesn't look like an Irish pub. Located in Putty Hill Shopping Center, McAvoy's is just a very big square space. Think of it as a honky-tonk Elk's Lodge. On the left side is the big bar, and on the right there's a grouping of about a dozen dining tables, some of them on a platform, and a few pool tables farther back. All of these areas run into each other without much separation. There is a smaller, quieter dining room beyond the bar, but you might miss it if you didn't go look for it. We did. But the main dining area isn't too raucous, really.

"Tonight we take care of all family business. " -- MacKenzie McHale "The Newsroom" began "News Night with Will McAvoy," the fifth episode of its second season, by trying to humanize its central figure, as we saw Will ignoring a phone call from his father's number as he was going on the air.

James McAvoy doesn't look like a traditional movie star. He's not tall, dark or classically handsome. In fact, the 28-year-old Scotsman is rather slight and talks in a brogue so thick at times it makes you desperate for a translator. But the Glasgow native has that indefinable something that makes him eminently fascinating to watch on screen. With that kind of presence and his flurry of recent movies (six in the last two years), he's bound to soon become better known in this country. American movie audiences first took notice of him as the charming faun Mr. Tumnus in 2005's The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and then again late last year as the ambitious young doctor to Idi Amin in The Last King of Scotland (a "weak, despicable human being," he says of his character)

LEWES, Del. - A rare plant, missing from Delaware's shores for over 100 years, has been rediscovered by scientists. More than 40 of the flowering plant, known as seabeach amaranth, were found recently on a stretch of sand dunes. "It's a significant find for Delaware," said William McAvoy, a botanist and one of the scientists who hound the plants. The tiny plant is considered a threatened species, with less than 20 populations worldwide. It grows only on Atlantic beaches, primarily in New York and North Carolina.

As one-half of the fatalistic couple at the tragic heart of Atonement, director Joe Wright's adaptation of Ian McEwan's complex, decade-spanning novel, James McAvoy looks every inch the classic leading man -- even if McAvoy himself doesn't happen to agree. "I'm 5-foot-7, and I've got pasty white skin," he insists. "I don't think I'm ugly, don't get me wrong, but I'm not your classic lead man, Brad Pitt guy." McAvoy's not complaining; rather, he's celebrating the fact that someone who looks like him can be cast in such a role.
