It's that time of year when some fans are thinking about sending Michael holiday greetings for Christmas. I have received some inquiries about how to do so, and I'm just providing people with the mailing address to his London agency. Don't bother with the LA based one because they aren't very fan friendly, and they're in Los Angeles, whereas London is Michael's home base. And his London agency moved so you may want to make note of their new address:
10a Christina Street
The Troika folks will forward mail to Michael. Even if you don't hear anything back, just know that he got it along with a mountain of other well wishes from fans.
And if you're thinking about sending fan mail to Michael and the futility in doing so, read this 'Hollywood's New A-List' article which focuses on Michael:'
When people talk about the Hollywood “A-list,” they often mention actors like George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon and Angelina Jolie. Although these are some of the best-known and most respected actors right now in Hollywood, there are several new performers working their way up through the ranks.
Although it can be tough to predict who will have lasting star power, there are several young actors who have started making a name for themselves that could be likely candidates for Hollywood’s future “A-list.” Here are a few up and coming actors I think have the potential to make a lasting impression on the silver screen.
1. Michael Fassbender
As a fan of superhero movies in general, I was excited for last summer’s premiere of “X-Men: First Class,” a prequel to the previous X-Men film trilogy. I loved the movie, and there were a number of factors that made it great — the characters, the music, the special effects, the story. But after my friends and I walked out of the theater after watching the movie, one factor in particular dominated our conversation: Michael Fassbender.
With the help of his equally talented co-star, James McAvoy, Fassbender elevates “First Class” from a good superhero movie to a great one. His intense, conflicted performance as Magneto absolutely blew me away. It’s easy for a villain to become one-dimensional, but Fassbender never lets that happen. Even when we as the audience know Magneto’s ideas are wrong, because of his complicated, painful past, we never lose our sense of sympathy for him.
No matter what film he’s in, Fassbender makes the audience take notice, and his persona dominates every scene he’s in. Although he plays more of a secondary role in this summer’s dark sci-fi epic “Prometheus,” his character, the android “David,” is likely the character you’ll remember most. In my opinion, Fassbender is one of the most promising and intriguing actors today. He has a driving intensity but also a wry sense of humor, and he’s equally at home in blockbusters and indies. It’s a shame it took Hollywood so long to “discover” Michael Fassbender, but I have a feeling he’s going to have a long and very productive career.
