IRISH actor Michael Fassbender is on the road to Oscar glory.

He is the most promising star to emerge from Ireland this decade and his latest work is already generating an awards buzz -- before it has even received a release date.

The Killarney native is starring in the summer blockbuster hit X-Men First Class. But it is his latest flick, A Dangerous Method, alongside Keira Knightley and Viggo Mortensen, that could prove a career-defining move.

The trailer was only released in the US this week and already critics are buzzing with news of his performance.

In the new period drama, which still has no set release date, Fassbender stars as psychiatrist Carl Jung, whose personal and professional relationship with famed psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud is tested when a mysterious and sexually charged Russian patient -- played by Knightley -- comes between them.


According to the trailer, Fassbender is on the edge of a breakthrough treatment and needs one special patient who is willing to reap the benefits of his new, experimental therapy, which is sexually based. This eventually leads to a full-on affair with the troubled patient.

And while Fassbender may be taking Hollywood by storm, he is still keeping his feet firmly on the ground.

The hunky actor doesn't have a publicist and also shuns any form of an entourage. Despite the fact that he is being labelled "the next Robert Pattinson", with thousands of screaming fans expected to follow his every move, he isn't worried about a life of celebrity.

"I don't know what's going to happen. I don't really think of it. I'll have to take it as it comes, really. It's one of those things I'll have to deal with if and when it arrives," he said. Fassbender is dating rocker Lenny Kravitz's daughter, Zoe Kravitz, who is 12 years his junior.
