Watch This: Michael Fassbender interview at The New York Times
In Steve McQueen's drama SHAME, Michael Fassbender plays a sex addict named Brandon, whose life is a toxic whirlwind of hookups and hiding. It's pretty heavy, and we assume that getting into the correct mind-set for such a role must demand a lot from an actor who, in fairness, seems like a stand-up kind of guy. Michael goes over the character and the process with this cool little video interview with the New York Times.
SHAME will be released in select theaters on December 2nd, 2011. For more info, check out the official film site here.
