Fassbender guests on Late Night with Seth Meyers to promote Frank. He also talks about riding motorcycles, doing musicals, and wearing a mask in the movie.
That’s me, actually. It makes you sort of more mischievous, an anarchic streak that came out. But the reason that the character wears the mask is because he’s suffering from mental health issues, so at an early age, his father makes him this mask and never really takes it off because he feels safe in that sort of insular world inside his head.
At a junket for X-Men: Days of Future Past, Fassbender reveals that a sequel to Prometheus is a go. As of right now it is unknown who will direct the movie or when it will begin filming. The film is in talks and is slated for a 2016 release.
The actor appears on the Graham Norton Show along with co-stars Hugh Jackman & James McAvoy to promote X-Men: Day of Future Past.
Fassbender is nominated for Best Supporting Actor at the 86th Academy Awards for portraying Edwin Epps in 12 Years a Slave.
I’m really chuffed with the Oscar nomination especially being recognized alongside such great actors. It’s a real honor.
