Good God, mine ears have come across the most glorious video mash-up of Michael Fassbender. No face this handsome has managed to sing everything from folk to pop and back again, all the while looking impossibly cool. I came upon the video via E!‘s Jenna Mullins on Twitter, who came upon it via Geek Tyrant. This is why the interweb is so great.
The video might have already made rounds on YouTube, but I don’t care. Take me home tonight, Mr. Fassbender.Read More
A very smiley Michael Fassbender arrived at JFK airport in New York City yesterday (June 4) looking extra sexy.
Fassbender says he deliberately avoided watching the old Alien movies in preparing for his role and instead concentrated on director Ridley Scott‘s other sci-fi epic.
“I made a decision not to watch the Alien movies,” says Michael. “I watched Blade Runner and I looked at the replicants. I looked at Sean Young. There was something in her character, a quality there that I kind of liked.”
As David, Fassbender has worked in huge, “insanely detailed” sets, and it is curious how he processes all that in terms of how his character would most likely regard his surroundings. “Walking around the spaceship was nuts. I felt like I was walking around a spaceship,” he enthuses.
“And that is David’s home in a way. It’s almost like when everyone comes out of cryo-stasis… [and] he’s been wandering around that place for three years, and he would likely think, ‘Don’t put that there.’ Ridley said to me, ‘He’s like a butler, isn’t he?’ There was something interesting in that. Ridley comes from an art background, so the idea of texture and the physicality of a set around the actors registering on camera was something that he didn’t want to lose.”
Do you think Prometheus will live up to its own hype?Read More
Oh my Zeus, it’s like some magical Prometheus party!
While the film has yet to hit theaters, that didn’t stop the cast and crew from getting together for some late night fun! Logan Marshall-Green, Michael Fassbender, Noomi Rapace, Guy Pearce and director Ridley Scott were spotted last night at 34 restaurant in London. Honestly, it’s probably the most attractive dinner party we’ve seen in a while.
It’s almost as nice as having Michael and co-star Charlize Theron in the same room. Also, where is Charlize? Didn’t she get the memo about the cast dinner reunion?
Because Michael Fassbender is amazing, he also brought his mother Adele along to the dinner. Cute stats! Also, Noomi looks amazing with long hair. Seriously, I would never have guessed that that’s the same girl from The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.
Check out the gallery to see all the fun photos. It’s adorable–they’re smiling, posing, having a good time–I wanna be friends with them. Quick! Someone help me make it happen!Read More
The stars of Prometheus attended today’s world premiere of the film at the Empire Leicester Square in London, England.
Prometheus takes its title from the spaceship in the story. The vessel goes on a mission to explore signs of alien life and the origins of mankind.
