James McAvoy's estranged father has appeared in court to face drug charges.

The Scottish actor's dad, 55-year-old James MCAvoy, Sr., and his half-brother, Donald MCAvoy, 24, appeared at Glasgow Sheriff Court on Tuesday (17Dec13).

They were arrested on 5 December (13) and charged with being concerned in the supply of cocaine at their home in the Drumchapel area of the city.

They made no pleas and were released on bail. The pair will return to court at a later date.

The Last King of Scotland star has not spoken to his father since he split from his mother Elizabeth when he was a child and has never met his half-sibling.
