“Michael works in a much more muscular way. Everything turns into muscle memory. He works a script, and works a script. Jude does a lot of theater so he comes from the preparation side — like a rehearsal room. He’s really open to it, and he asks a lot of questions on that day. He’s just phenomenal. So no there aren’t any similarities, but they’re all very good actors.”
— Keira Knightley, when asked the difference between Michael Fassbender & Jude Law as actors

GQ: Lets talk about Michael Fassbender.
Eliza Coupe: [Laughs] Okay.

GQ: Do you love him?
Eliza Coupe: What's funny is, I respect the guy as an actor. Do I love him? No. I've been so jaded by the big wall behind Oz being taked down, where every actor is just a person. Growing up in New Hampshire, I was so freaking obsessed with actors it got really creepy. Thank God I didn't live in Hollywood, or I'd have a restraining order as a five year old. I couldn't separate in my mind that they were a person. But they are. Anyway, that being said, I think Fassbender is a phenomenal actor and not bad to look at, but what's funny is, I haven't even seen Shame. So everybody thinks I'm obsessed with him because of the size of what's between his legs but I'm not. I haven't even seen it.

GQ: I read a funny Fassbender headline the other day: "Did Fassbender p**** Cause Oscar Snub?"
Eliza Coupe: There are so many things wrong with that! All the words in that headline. Even the word head.

Pitt reunited with the Australian film-maker last year to play an underworld fixer in Cogan's Trade. Also on the runway are zombie tale World War Z and a smaller role in Steve McQueen's Twelve Years a Slave. "McQueen is the real deal," he says. "And Fassbender is as good as it gets." We discuss Fassbender's prolific workrate and Pitt remarks, "Yeah, it's like he's working in the porn industry. He should be, by the way."

Dev Patel in awe of Fassbender

added: 24 Feb 2012 // by: newsdesk

(Cover) - EN Movies - Dev Patel says Michael Fassbender reminds him of a young Robert De Niro.

Dev is currently promoting his new movie The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. He was quizzed on which actors he appreciates in Hollywood at the moment, and was quick to single out Michael.

Dev has been impressed with the star’s body of work so far and would love to star alongside him in the future.

“Shame is probably one of my favourites right now. It had a big impact on me, it’s a very, very good movie. I don’t know what it was. It’s just that Fassbender dude, he’s so bl**dy good,” he told Cover Media. “I just found it so cinematic and yet so raw. The music, the score, what he did, everything was perfect. It reminded me of a young De Niro or something. I’d love to work with that guy.”

Dev would be reluctant to ever have acting lessons. The 21-year-old British star believes that spending time on movie sets and working with big names is the greatest way to improve his talents.

“I’m not the best, I want to learn,” he explained. “Nothing can beat learning on the job. You may come out with a c**p movie but at least you learn a lot.”

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is out in the UK on February 24.

James Nesbitt: I want to beat up Michael Fassbender in a movie
Cold Feet actor James Nesbitt talks to Metro about working with Michael Fassbender, starring in medical drama Monroe and his role as dwarf Bofur in The Hobbit.

You watched real-life brain surgeons at work to prepare for your role in Monroe – what was that like?

Extraordinary. I thought it would be horrendous but I wasn’t squeamish and it was incredible to see the brutal way they get through the skull into the brain. I’ve seen tops of skulls sawn off and industrial-sized drills penetrating the skull. Then seeing this incredible organ which contains our soul and our humanity is quite beautiful. It was incredible to see those people dealing with life-and-death situations. It added a lot of credibility to the role.

How many operations did you see?

Five. Some were traffic accidents and some planned in advance – like tumours being removed. What they do is extraordinary and they’re so precise and delicate. In typical actor fashion, I thought I could be a brain surgeon by the end of it.

How did you combine this with doing The Hobbit?

Pete Jackson was very kind and gave me three months off and when I finished Monroe I went back and did another four months on The Hobbit. There was a lot of travel but they were both fantastic jobs to work on.

Have you finished on The Hobbit?

I’m going back to New Zealand in November for the premiere, then we go back next year to finish things up. There’s three movies now so a bit more filming to do. I’ve enjoyed it hugely. The last one doesn’t come out until 2014 so it’s got a long lifespan.

What’s it like working on something with such a huge budget?

Incredible. The scale of the thing is amazing, with huge sets and a massive crew, but the story’s about a hobbit, a wizard and 13 dwarves. It felt like a little community, which was great. As they go on this quest, we as actors also go on this journey.

Did you form a clique with the other dwarves?

No, we all got on very well and Martin Freeman has led it brilliantly. He’s very funny and focused and the rest of us get on well together, which you have to do – the days are very long. It’s a magnificent company and a magnificent role.

Why did you want to become an actor?

It seemed like a good way to meet girls. It started as a hobby and then I realised it was my vocation. I thought since I enjoyed it I’d try to do it for a living. My first role was The Artful Dodger at the age of 13 and I loved the excitement. I was comfortable doing it, and as much as I wanted to be a footballer I knew it wasn’t going to work out, and acting was something I enjoyed and was inspired by.

What was your first professional role?

When I was 16 they were doing Pinocchio at the local theatre. I was working backstage and, two days before the run started, the actor playing Jiminy Cricket broke his foot and I took over. I got paid £77 a week.

Who have you learned the most from?

I learned a lot from Adrian Dunbar, directors such as Danny Boyle and Paul Greengrass – you’re constantly learning. Most recently from Ian McKellen on The Hobbit – he’s got a never-ending appetite for work and his generosity as an actor is great.

What’s the worst job you’ve had?

Packing text books in a factory. I was also the nightwatchman on a caravan park, which wasn’t good for me or the park. I kept going to sleep. The caravans could have been stolen for all I knew.

What was your most extravagant purchase?

My racehorse, Riverside Theatre. No one usually buys a racehorse and does well out of it but mine’s doing OK – he won at Cheltenham this year and he’s paid his way. He had a more expensive holiday than the family this year – he was in Ireland eating grass, which cost more than going to France for three weeks.

What’s the most unusual place you’ve been recognised?

I went to India with Unicef in connection with Manchester United to raise money for children’s education. They thought one of the United players was going and because they didn’t have a television they thought I was Ryan Giggs. That was until I started having a kickaround. My sister said she was at the airport in Mombasa and saw me on an old episode of Murphy’s Law – it’s strange to think that’s on in Africa.

What’s your proudest achievement?

In my career it’s just to still be working. In general it’s my two daughters – they’ve turned out quite normal and we’re all close.

What would you still like to do in your career?

I want to beat up Michael Fassbender in a movie. I was with him at the beginning of his career when he did an episode of Murphy’s Law. He’s a proper superstar and enormously talented but I want to do a scene where I properly duff him up.

Monroe starts on ITV1 on October 1 at 9pm.

“I think he is very good. He was born in Germany, but grew up in Killarney, County Kerry. He was great in Steve McQueen’s Shame. I like watching other actors, and being open to everything. I think a bad film is just as good as a great film, because as actor, you can say ‘why didn’t you like it?’ and ‘what would you have done differently’.”
— Colin Morgan on Michael Fassbender [x]

http://www.interviewmagazine.com/film/brad-pitt-1/#page4

RITCHIE: One of the films you're producing is Steve McQueen's next film, 12 Years a Slave, right?

PITT: I'm very excited about that one. I'm a big fan of McQueen. Did you see the [Michael] Fassbender one that he just did, Shame?

RITCHIE: I didn't see Shame.

PITT: Well, it's a shame that you didn't see Shame. There's a real painterly way about McQueen and how he tells stories. They're very quiet . . . It's almost like he broods. But this one we just did, 12 Years a Slave, is a very particular story about American slavery, which is a subject that some people think we've dealt with and done and put away, but then you see this story and you realize that we really haven't. It's based on the memoir of a free black man who lived in the North and who was tricked into slavery in the South. It's just a horror story in a lot of ways. I think it's gonna be interesting.

RITCHIE: Is it still in production?

PITT: Just finished. Just wrapped.

“The Counselor is a thriller involving a suitcase full of cocaine and a starry cast: Diaz, Pitt, Penélope Cruz, Javier Bardem and Michael Fassbender. To the nudge-nudge quiz question. “What is Fassbender’s most famous part?”. Cameron replies that, actually, she hasn’t seen him in Shame, in which Fassbender memorably appeared naked. But she knows of what I speak. “Well” she says coquettishly “he does have a lot of confidence…”

Elle Uk, december 2012.

http://variety.com/gallery/sag-preview-actors-on-actors-julia-roberts-benicio-del-toro-nicole-kidman-and-more-critique-this-years-contenders/#!29/james-mcavoy-on-michael-fassbender-as-edwin-epps-in-12-years-a-slave/

James McAvoy on Michael Fassbender as Edwin Epps in “12 Years a Slave”

I'm trying to get to the bottom of why my friend, someone I know and love, put terror in me. Perhaps the answer is obvious: He plays a bad man during a time in history where a person was deemed inferior due to the color of their skin.

The inferiority was often felt through slavery, where these people would be tortured, humiliated and punished among many other atrocities. It is a terrifying truth that this happened in the past and continues to happen today in differing circumstances on our planet.

So why did Michael Fassbender terrify me so much?

I think it's because when I watch his unflinching work in this film, I not only believe in his hatred of those he enslaves (perhaps even of himself and his own family) but I also believe that anything could happen. Many actors can portray “darkness” and there is no doubt he has done that with great skill. But with Michael's performance in “12 Years a Slave” he does something that few actors are able to pull off — he makes us believe at all times while he is on screen that anything could happen, that we the audience are not safe to trust that our hero will prevail.

History has taught us that anything could happen to this slave, but Michael's performance makes us understand the helplessness felt in the face of such animal irrationality in that place and time.

Unpredictable, irrational, ruled by his instincts and possibly entirely by his fears, Michael's performance as the slave-owning Epps terrifies me. Not just because he's good at “playing dark” but because it suggests to me that the animal within is never far away and that it will constantly be on the lookout for a society in which to nest.

(McAvoy starred in “X-Men: First Class” with Fassbender; other credits include “Atonement” and “Trance.”)
