Star Profile: Michael Fassbender

Michael Fassbender was born in Heidelberg, Germany to German and Irish parents. He spent his early years on TV shows but is making a name for himself on the big screen now as he’s set to star in X-Men: First Class.

His first major part was Burton “Pat” Christenson in Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg’s award-winning Band of Brothers in 2001 but you may not know that he also produced, directed and starred in the stage version of Quentin Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs, along with his production company Peanut Productions, and in another of the director’s most famous films, Inglourious Basterds.

Fassbender went on to appear in The Real Life of Angel Deverell in 2007 which was about the rise and fall of an eccentric young British writer in the early 20th century. He plays her love interest and average painter Esmé. The drama was even premiered at the Berlin International Film Festival.

This year the actor is set to play Mr. Rochester in the film Jane Eyre, featuring Mia Wasikowska in the title role, which release 9th September, and he has completed filming A Dangerous Method with director David Cronenberg, where he plays the role based on the Swiss psychiatrist and psychologist Carl Jung, featuring Viggo Mortensen, Keira Knightley and Vincent Cassel.

In what is probably due to be his most memorable role thus far, and the one we’re most excited about, Fassbender will portray Magneto in X-Men: First Class later this year.

Actor Profile: Michael Fassbender

This is the first edition, first time I'm doing an actor profile on here. I know I pay a lot of attention to directors but I do like to give actors their due when they deserve it. In this particular case, the actor I'm talking about is Michael Fassbender. Art house audiences are most likely already familiar with Michael Fassbender. He's starred in such films as Hunger and Fish Tank, both of which are excellent films (more on that later). His most high profile role to date has been Inglourious Basterds and while Christoph Waltz pretty much stole his thunder in that film, Fassbender was just as good.

This year he has a few roles that are even more high profile. First, he'll be starring as the younger version of Magneto in X-Men: First Class. Later this year, he'll star as Carl Jung in David Cronenberg's "A Dangerous Method." He also already wrapped up filming "Shame," the second film by helmer Steven R. McQueen (more on his first film later). Michael Fassbender is practically an A-list actor already, you just don't realize it or know it yet. He's definitely an actor with perhaps the greatest amount of potential in Hollywood today and what I appreciate about him is his willingness to stay with the lower profile roles while not being afraid to try the more mainstream affair.

What makes Michael Fassbender so watchable? Is it the fact that he's so cool, calm, suave, and charming in "Inglourious Basterds" that he would make even George Clooney blush? Or is it his fearless, menacing, heartbreaking performance in "Hunger" that was the film that really caught my eye in regards to him. The truth is that he can do it all, pretty much. He can play the suave sophisticate if he wants to, he can play the more emotionally complex roles as well, he can go dark, he can be funny, he can be sexy, and he can be downright creepy... sometimes in the same film (watch Fish Tank). The reason why I felt the need to take the time and write about him is because he's one of the few actors out there today that I'm looking forward to seeing his new films regardless of who's making it. Ordinarily, I would not care about X-Men First Class, I find James McAvoy to be a very bland actor who usually plays those do-gooder type roles. Whereas, Michael Fassbender is the guy who can play a do-gooder but will always leave you to wonder if he really is a do-gooder. That's the type of actor I like to watch.

So be on the lookout for Michael Fassbender. He's already a great actor. He will win an Oscar within the next ten years (if they know what's good for them) and he will be on everyone's favorite list by the end of the year. In the meantime, do yourself a favor and watch Hunger and Fish Tank which are two brilliant British films featuring him. You won't be disappointed. Slightly disturbed, but not disappointed.

Happy birthday, Michael Fassbender!

April 2nd, 2011 §

Today – 2nd April – is the 34th birthday of the wondeful, and very sexy, Michael Fassbender.

Courtesy of IMDb, Fassbender was born in Heidelberg, Germany. His family moved to Killarney, Co. Kerry, Ireland, when he was a child.

After supporting roles in HBO’s Band of Brothers and 2007′s 300, Fassbender’s breakthrough role was in 2008′s Hunger where he portrayed Irish Republican Army prisoner Bobby Sands.

The film was very well received, with first-time director Steve McQueen being awarded the Carl Foreman Award for the Most Promising Newcomer at the 2009 Bafta Awards. At the 2008 British Independent Film Awards, Fassender won the Best Actor award while Steve McQueen also won the Golden Camera at the 2008 Cannes Film Festival.

In 2009 Fassbender stared as Lt. Archie Hilcox in Inglorious Basterds, an English soldier who goes undercover as a German Captain.

This year he will be seen in Jane Eyre opposite Mia Wasikowska plus A Dangerous Method opposite Viggo Mortensen and Keira Knightley. Due for release in June is one of his most eagerly awaited performances, that of Erik Lehnsherr in X-Men: First Class.

With an Irish and German background he has entered the field almost a decade ago and it was through his fine performance in Quentin Tarantino movie Inglorious Basterds that he had gained wide recognition as an actor. However even before and after that he had been engaged in a wide array of both small screen and wide screen productions which showcases his fine acting talents. With a fan base of his own he has become an notable actor among many others with a versatile and enviable resume under his belt.

Michael Fassbender had started his screen career through television series Hearts and Bones in which he had done a role which has spanned across several episodes. After that he had been given a more substantial role in television mini series Band of Brothers. After getting recognition as a small screen actor he finally had his wide screen debut through epic flick 300 and this movie had enabled him to get wider recognition. This movie sure had been a fine stepping stone for him and it can be said that after that this actor had manged to nab some fine character portrayals in a wide range of motion pictures working with acclaimed and renowned movie makers.

Michael Fassbender
Michael Fassbender is a German-born Irish actor who's probably most famous (at the minute) for playing Lieutenant Archie Hicox in Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds. That's all about to change though...

Oh yes, he was in 300 too.

Just in case you couldn't place his Basterds role.

That one is purely for aesthetic reasons.
Just The Facts

1. Though he's an Irish actor in his 30s, don't compare him to Colin Farrell. Farrell is known for drinking and womanising. Fassbender is known for being a brilliant actor.
2. He seems to be appearing in literally every film released this year. Watch the X-Men: First Class trailer and then see if you can find any reason to dislike this.
3. He once put on a play of Reservoir Dogs in his hometown, obviously without getting prior permission from Tarantino. Maybe that's why he was killed off so viciously in Basterds.


This was a Sky One fantasy series from 2005. Set in a British boarding school, it centres around Cassie, a schoolgirl who discovers she has magical powers and that a fallen angel called Azazeal (played by Fassbender) is trying to get her pregnant, because their son will be the Anti-Christ who will bring around the end of the world. Or something. It's as ridiculously cheesy as it sounds, yet is strangely compelling. Also features an ass-kicking theme tune by Garbage.


Ah, the film that would only be half an hour long if director Zack Snyder wasn't so fond of slo-mo. Also the film hated by feminists, despite the fact that it contains a number of rather strapping young men running around almost naked with swords. Fassbender plays Stelios, who gets the single coolest line in the film.

Random Persian Messenger: "Our arrows will blot out the sun!"

Stelios: "Then we shall fight in the shade."

Someone just got burned.


Also known as the film where Fassbender does a Christian Bale, starving himself to a ridiculous skinny level in the name of art.

It's one of those incredibly worthy biographical, historical dramas that is full of brilliant performances and that doesn't flinch away from accurately portraying the horrors of the period and the agonies these men went through in their bid to be recognised as political prisoners rather than terrorists. It's just a pity then, that the film is so boring despite the subject matter. And despite the fact that it has more cock on display than your average porno.

Eden Lake

Not something you want to watch on an empty stomach, Eden Lake is a film you endure, not enjoy. You will never want to go on holidays to rural England again, after watching Fassbender and Kelly McDonald getting horrifically tortured by a gang of hoodies after Fassbender accidentally kills their dog. If however, you like your torture porn/horror films, I highly recommend it.

And that's just the beginning...

Fish Tank

Here he plays an Irish scallywag who goes out with one woman, shags her fifteen year old daughter, and then dumps her, all while being married and babied with some other woman. Tut tut. That kind of behaviour gives men a bad name... The rest of the film is just as depressing, with the fifteen year old having her dream of being a dancer crushed before she runs off to Cardiff with some travellers. And all the while her mother cannot give less of a f&#!.

Inglourious Basterds

Probably his most famous role to date. Fassbender dons a convincing English accent and goes to France to help Brad Pitt's Basterds with their plan to blow up Hitler's high command. Spends the rest of his time in the film speaking German with an Irish accent and then getting shot to pieces for not signalling "3" like a proper German. At least the Scotch was apparently worth it.

Like all true Irishmen, he is willing to lay down his life for some damn good alcohol.

Jonah Hex

This film was terrible. That is all.

Jane Eyre

I will be first in line to see this when it comes out in Ireland in September. He plays Mr Rochester, people. Mr Edward Rochester, i.e. the only literary Edward that is worth getting your knickers in a twist over.

You know it to be true, you sparkly c***.

X-Men: First Class

If you haven't seen the trailer for this, here, let me enrich your life:

Fassbender's Magneto looks like he's going to be the most badass thing to ever hit a cinema screen, rocking a turtleneck like nobody else on the planet and using his mutant powers to stupendous effect. If he doesn't end up totally stealing the film from the rest of them, well, may I live a thousand years, and never hunt again.
James Bond

Don't you dare try and tell me he wouldn't be perfect for the role when Craig hangs up his Martini glass. Don't you dare.

The man IS Bond (James Bond).
