People love them some Michael Fassbender!

In the current Empire magazine issue out on newsstands in the UK now, there will be a great write up about Centurion and Michael Fassbender. So while Michael is uber busy and playing the invisible man, we will have to make due with bread crumbs about Michael by other people who know him and have had the pleasure of working with him.

Actor David Morrissey was interviewed briefly by Empire recently and this is what he has to say about his role in Centurion and working with Michael:

David Morrissey gave Empire the lowdown on his experiences filming Centurion at the premiere of his new film Is Anybody There last night.

Apparently it's a fast-paced epic: “It’s all about the Roman legion in England, so that's why I have a crew cut! It’s all action sequences: all I do is run around, fighting, and riding horses! My character is one of a team of seven who are trying to escape and the Scottish Picts are after us. My character is basically Michael Fassbender's right-hand man really and that was a great job to do, very physically draining but I loved every minute of it. I love working with Michael Fassbender, he's a great actor and someone we'll be hearing a lot of in the future, I think he's going to be a huge star so it was wonderful to work with him.”

High praise indeed! Centurion - which is due in cinemas later this year - also stars Dominic West, Olga Kurylenko and Noel Clarke, and is directed by Neil Marshall.

Awwwww, can't you just smell the love? It's just so awesome that so many people really like and respect Michael and predict that he's going to be a huge star one day. Now if only the media would get with the program and start focusing at bit on him.

Invisible man is right. But, I guess the fact that we're going to be getting alot of his projects out this year makes the present drought worth it.

You are correct. I'm dealing with the serious drought of info for now, but we'll get what's coming to us on the Michael front in due time. :) I reckon we'll be sick and tired of him after a bit.
