Everyone knows Phil McGraw is a no-nonsense man who makes intelligent decisions when it comes to problem-solving.

More importantly, Bratton is recognized worldwide for his talent and prowess on the screen.
The character is loosely based on the actor who portrays him—Creed Bratton himself. Much like his onscreen persona, he has lived quite a colorful yet wholly enigmatic life. For example, his hidden “talent” is that he is a talented musician—a bonafide rockstar. During the sixties, he traveled Europe, the Middle East, and Africa as a professional musician! He won’t be running out of gas anytime soon, considering he’s still active in the industry.
He may only be in his forties, but actor James McAvoy has been in the industry for almost half his life. His varied roles in The, The Witch, The Wardrobe, Atonement, X-Men, and Split show just how talented and versatile he can be. Moreover, it is impressive enough by itself, but you might be surprised at what other skills he has yet to show.
For example, the Scottish actor once had to learn how to unicycle for a film role. Now, unlike your average bike, the mere act of balancing on a unicycle requires a degree of skill that not everyone has. McAvoy did manage to learn how to do it, though he is far from being an expert. He showed off his skills on the Graham Norton Show, and following a shaky start, he was able to put on quite the act!
