It’s been a week since George Clooney made his comment about Michael Fassbender’s sizable endowment and folks are still chatting about it. Hell, we don’t mind telling y’all that it got our attention right quick and before Clooney could finish with his colorful acceptance speech we were online pulling from a few choice full-frontal video grabs of the new Magneto letting it all hang out and swing!
Strange though, with those few choice words out of the mouth of a celebrated Hollywood icon, an otherwise serious and talented thespian who has not yet fully gone main stream, and is only now getting his due, has been catapulted into the stratosphere and is the talk of EVERYONE. Not to mention getting every vagina and gay man, across the world, deep in monologue about getting their mouths around that club.
Ok, so yeah, we know Fassbender from his roles in the X-Men: First Class, Jane Eyre and 300 flicks. But Sadly, he skipped the step and repeat at X & we only managed to obtain one frame of the Irish-German soon to be 35 yr old. But we were paying attention!
Of Course the German portion of that aforementioned heritage coupling fully explains his third leg and would hardly necessitate Clooney’s statement!
We’ve done a little bit of research on the matter…
Now, we haven’t as yet gotten a chance to screen Shame – the much touted film from where the grabs originate – but make no mistake about it, it’s on our Netflix que!
Fassbender can presently be seen in Haywire and is next slated to star in Prometheus, opposite Charlize Theron and Patrick Wilson and Twelve Years a Slave, opposite Brad Pitt. He is also gracing the present issue of The Hollywood Reporter cover with photos’ by Brian Bowen Smith
