The Screen's Hottest Hottie In Every Way
Michael Fassbender has made searing impressions in Hunger, Inglourious Basterds, and Jane Eyre, and he's also managed to heat up everything from an X-Men movie to Centurion and beyond.
Plus he's coming up in David Cronenberg's A Dangerous Method, in which Fassbender is the founder of analytical psychology, Carl Jung.
The man is an agile actor with range and daring -- and he's not bad-looking, either.
(Having met him last year, I can also assure you he's charming enough to melt your eyeglasses.)
But all eyeballs will be looking -- no, staring -- when Steve McQueen's Shame plays the New York Film Festival next month and then opens in theaters.
In that film -- for which he just won Best Actor at the Venice Film Festival -- Fassbender plays a guy with a pornography compulsion, and I hear there's nudity and goings-on like you haven't seen since the 1970s.
We're talking pudenda-filled sex-club-style action that's reminiscent of places Bette Midler used to play.
God, I simply adore the cinema!
