Just When You Thought You Couldn't Adore Michael Fassbender More, You Find Out He Sings

By Joanna Robinson | Trade News | June 14, 2012 | Comments ()


Yes, yes my lovelies. Michael Fassbender is fun to look at. We know from Shame that he's gifted with a sizable down-low and that he can even identify other men's penises. We know from Centurion and Inglorious Basterds that he can beat some sweet, sweet ass. We know from Prometheus that he can be programmed to be sly. We know he looks good cuddling with Senator Palpatine. He's also bilingual. He can act the Gosling out of a movie (see Hunger) and Herr Fassbender even looks good in a vest.

But did you know he could sing? You bet your fancypants der Kolben he can.

Your move, Hiddleston.

    I named my Mercedes Michael Fassbender because they're both German and they're both SEXY as hell!

  • mona_sterling

    OK, got to get this off my chest. The charges against Michael were dropped by the authorities in LA after questioning two witnesses. This woman has (allegedly) filed, and then withdrawn, similar charges against at least one other man she'd been in a relationship with. The Irish Sunday Mail investigated the allegations fairly thoroughly and couldn't come up with much in the way of evidence to support the woman's story. Not trying to minimize the abuse of women, but there simply aren't enough facts known to just full-on label him an abuser.

    Sorry but that briefly accurate Owen Wilson impression wins Hiddleston everything.

  • AngelenoEwok

    I have a friend who used to set aside a few days every year and watch every Keanu Reeves movie. Every. Single. One. After Prometheus I texted him, "Hey, that Keanuthon you do, I'm going to do it with Fassbender. Fassython!" He said, "You could also call it, 'Oh, there's Mikey's package again.'"

  • Sara_Tonin00

    blah blah blah. All decently trained British actors can sing. It's part of the program. Fancy that. (most speak at least one other language too)

  • Well, seeing as he's not British that's probably not a factor (also from reading interviews, I've never been able to gauge how much formal training he's had). Also, he's in fact probably tri-lingual, given that he went to Irish schools.

  • stardust

    Hiddleston's impressions AND singing > Fassbender's singing. Impressions count for two talent points. It's a scientific fact.

    Holy gods, I am loving these "just when you thought" posts! I liked him best as John Lennon, that rocked.

  • Sanity Fair


    Thank you. Just....thank you.

  • KatSings

    I love McAvoy's face in the last clip on that. The "um...what is happening" look is gold.

  • Pants-are-a-must

    Fassbender singing vs Hiddleston's impressions! Hardy commentating!

  • Oh yes, please!

  • John G.

    There's so much Fassbender love these days, I feel like we're on the verge of discovering something horrible about him.

  • becks2point0

    I can't tell if this was meant to be sarcastic but all of this Fassbender-love comes in spite of the fact that it is already common knowledge that he beat his ex-girlfriend really severely. She later dropped the charges and got back together with him briefly so I guess people are overlooking it.

  • Matchetes

    Since the charges were dropped I try to give him, to a very small degree, the benefit of the doubt. However, it does surprise me that it is almost never talked about. Everyone just sort of looks the other way.

  • annie

    It's hard to give him a try once they got back together. Why would someone get back with a woman who accused him of that if it wasn't true?

  • Sara_Tonin00

    I had not heard of this, and dropping charges/getting back together isn't really a good reason - that happens fairly often. If it happened before he was famous, that would be a better explanation.

  • AngelenoEwok

    It allegedly happened in summer of '09. Charges were filed in March of 2010, and dropped April 6th. I can't find ANYTHING else about that story (including any details about them getting back together) anywhere but tumblr or TMZ. I'm by no means one to give him a pass for unacceptable behavior just because he's talented and dreamy, but it's hard to form an objective opinion on a story that's been so effectively buried.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    I googled around "fassbender abuse" - things confused me briefly because his ex used two different first names. But Agent Bedhead's website is actually where I found the most information. And something else that the "getting back together" was a recent fling noted on Celebitchy (a site I normally loathe & avoid, and the post on this is a good example why.)

  • PDamian

    Oh, shit. I just googled "fassbender abuse" after reading your post. What I read permanently cured me of any interest in Fassbender. I don't give Chris Brown a pass on his Rihanna beatdown, and I'm sure as hell not giving Fassbender a bye just because he's cuter and more talented. I'm so fucking disappointed, too. And yes, I know people will say I'm jumping to conclusions based on incomplete reporting. But I used to do volunteer work for a woman's shelter, and I have female friends who've been abused, and I know well the fucked-up dynamic that prompts women to protect their abusers by downplaying their own pain. To quote one of Fassbender's recent films, "Never again." And fuck you too, sir.

    He's half-Irish. Of course he sings. (OTOH, being half-German, that could have turned out very different.)

  • $27019454

    "ALL Irish must sing well and have deep repertoire of melancholy tunes at ready." It's in the playbook we are each issued at birth.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    I don't know about 'well', tough. There is that little thing called Jedward.

  • Captain_Tuttle

    That's what I was going to say. I think it's mandatory.

  • Resa Anderson
  • annie

    And Hiddles doesn't have the taint of domestic violence in his past either.

  • chanohack

    Bless you, Resa.

  • Kala

    Yes, let's keep up the "battle" of the hot U.K. men. You know...'cause we need more evidence...and junk.

  • tiggyt

    Fassbender is Irish. Ireland is not part of the U.K. Tis rude to refer to it as such because of the long and bloody fight for independence after 800 years of oppression. (It's okay, we're good neighbours now.)

  • Resa Anderson
  • Of course he's rapping "Miami."

  • Fabius_Maximus

    That's not singing.

  • stardust
