Frankly, Michael Fassbender is a chameleon. It’s hard to imagine cinema’s other finest modern movie star, Ryan Gosling, working just as well in historical pieces (like ‘A Dangerous Method’ or ‘300’) as he does in contemporary drama. Fassbender, on the other hand, has yet to find a genre or style he can’t adapt to. This is what makes him the greatest movie star working today; he has the charisma to carry anything from low budget experimentals to tentpole extravaganzas. He has the intelligence as a performer to deliver exactly what his role requires. The chameleonic quality sees him fit comfortably into any project, and the handsome features are there to draw in the punters.
I adore you, Ryan Gosling, but Brogan Morris hit it right on the head. As my good friend Penny once said to me, “There isn’t anything Michael Fassbender can’t do in front of a camera, is there?” Doesn’t appear to be.
LENNY KRAVITZ IS THE WORLD’S SEXIEST MAN. (Runners Up: Timothy Olyphant, Idris Elba). Are we really considering Justin Bieber a man these days? Really? Also, how did Denzel Washington & Will Smith make it onto that list TWICE, lol.
(In only somewhat related news, last night I caught part of a Daniel Tosh routine wherein he pondered the magnificence of a sexual congress between Brad Pitt and David Beckham, and the wunderkind that it would produce. I laughed so hard I hurt myself.)
