Magneto is in Jane Eyre.

No, it's not a crazy mash-up. It's just that Michael Fassbender who is playing Magneto in X-Men: First Class is also starring as Mr. Rochester in the newest version of Jane Eyre. I just discovered this a few days ago and feel pretty silly for not figuring it all out earlier... I knew there was a reason I liked this guy!

Anyhow, you can read Fassbender's latest interview here, which covers both movies as well as several other interesting projects due to come out soon (including one that co-stars Viggo Mortensen and Kiera Knightley).

What else has he been in? Fans of 300 and Band of Brothers should recognize him as well. In fact, he met his X-Men co-star James McAvoy while filming Band of Brothers!

HDD's Exclusive Interview with Legendary VFX Designer John Dykstra

'X-Men: First Class' will soon be released on Blu-ray, and Fox has given us the opportunity to speak with 'First Class' visual effects designer and industry legend John Dykstra. Dykstra has worked on some of the biggest films of the last 30 years. From the original 'Star Trek' and 'Star Wars' movies to 'Spider-Man' and 'Inglourious Basterds,' Dykstra was a master of the trade in the purely mechanical effects days and is still at the top of the game with modern computer generated effects.

In the following conversation, Dykstra defines the role of visual effects designer, explains the evolution of the job, talks 'X-Men,' Michael Fassbender, Matthew Vaughn, and inspiration. Enjoy!

HDD: So you work a lot with the actors?

John Dykstra: Yeah.

HDD: Then I've got to ask because I'm a big fan: You've done two films now with Michael Fassbender, 'X-Men' and 'Inglourious Basterds' -

John Dykstra: Yeah, I like Michael.

HDD: How is it working with him?

John Dykstra: He's great! He's terrific! He's totally invested in the making of a movie. He puts the making of the movie first. He is a gentlemen. He's charming. And he's dangerous. (laughs)
