"What I find really interesting is to try and mix it up, to push myself and try different things. I don't want to stay in my comfort zone.

I want to take risks and keep myself scared."
Michael Fassbender

Michael Fassbender is Cultured Badass: the man. That's pretty much all you need to know.

But to go into a little bit of unneeded depth, Michael Fassbender is an Irish actor with a background in theater who starred in the 2008 film Hunger about the 1981 Irish hunger strike. While the film had a fairly limited release, Fassbender's intense performance got a lot of praise.

He had a handful of other notable roles of the next two years, but things really took off in 2011. That year he played more coveted (and well-received) roles than many actors have in their entire career including Magneto, Carl Jung, and Mr. Rochester. He is known for his broodingly intense persona and dark charisma. While having a quick career turn is not uncommon for actors, few have been in so many high-profile roles so successfully. His career seems to be continuing strongly with roles in big films like Ridley Scott's Prometheus.
