I woke up to everyone talking about People Magazine's sexiest guy of the year.

I was happy to see this online:

Salon's Men on Top 2010
Our fifth annual celebration of what real sexiness looks like -- with 15 prime examples, including our new No. 1

2. Michael Fassbender
The future Hollywood superstar who refuses to go Hollywood

Ever since the entertainment media first noticed Michael Fassbender -- around the time he appeared in the Steven Spielberg-Tom Hanks miniseries "Band of Brothers" in 2001 -- the roguishly handsome Irish actor with the German name has been hailed as a future superstar. It could still happen: In 2011, we'll presumably see Fassbender in Steven Soderbergh's action film "Haywire," in Cary Fukunaga's "Jane Eyre" (as Rochester), in David Cronenberg's "A Dangerous Method" (as Carl Jung) and in the latest "X-Men" sequel (as Magneto). But as that range suggests, Fassbender has spent the last decade pursuing roles and projects that interested him, without much regard for a celebrity-oriented career path. And that might be the sexiest thing about him.

Mind you, as anyone who saw Fassbender in Andrea Arnold's creepy-erotic British indie "Fish Tank" can attest, he's got an astonishing physique, a zillion-watt smile, powerful bedroom eyes and deeply embedded Irish charm that can go from friendly uncle to nasty seducer after a couple of pints. He's fully equipped to take on the surly he-man roles played by Russell Crowe and Mel Gibson, or, for that matter, the more sophisticated shaken-not-stirred parts played by Daniel Craig or Ralph Fiennes. Thing is, he may not be all that interested.

Fassbender's signature role to date remains his mesmerizing but distinctly unsexy turn as IRA hunger striker Bobby Sands in Steve McQueen's near-experimental "Hunger." One way of understanding Fassbender's career, in fact, is to see that he's a genuine movie buff who's followed a distinctive high-low trajectory and picks his directors carefully: Along with Arnold and McQueen, he's worked with Zack Snyder (in "300"), François Ozon (in "Angel"), Joel Schumacher (in "Blood Creek"), Quentin Tarantino (in "Inglourious Basterds") and rising star Neil Marshall (in the underappreciated "Centurion"). At 33, Fassbender has plenty of time to become a household name, along with drop-dead good looks and talent to burn. But he's evidently not going to pimp himself out in vapid Hollywood movies to get there. What could possibly be sexier than that?
