Yesterday marked Michael Fassbender’s 37th birthday so we’ve decided to celebrate the occasion by trawling Google Image Search.Michael has been at every awards ceremony this year for his blistering performance in Steve McQueen’s 12 Years A Slave and looks set to continue his acclaimed streak in Lenny Abrahamson’s Frank, in which he plays an eccentric musician who wears a bobble head throughout. He’s rather fetching even in papier mache. Or if you’d rather indulge in the omniplex popcorn and Diet Coke fanfare, X-Men: Days of Future Past lands in cinemas this May. Fassbender will be reprising his role as fanciable mutant villian Magneto.
Meanwhile we’re camping outside the IFTAs ceremony this weekend where Fassbender will be making a triumphant return to these shores. We wonder if anyone will ask him about the rumours surrounding him and Oscar-winner Lupita Nyong’o?
