I am loving this casting news.
German-Irish actor Michael Fassbender, who smoldered in Inglourious Basterds and is currently wreaking havoc in Jonah Hex, is in talks to join James McAvoy in X-Men: First Class.
Fassbender would play Erik Lensherr, the man who becomes Magneto in the origin-story movie.
Yes! I love this (handsome) man and how he’s combining commercial endeavors with art house fare. He’s also playing Mr. Rochester in the new Jane Eyre….
