Michael Fassbender to Star in Prometheus

Michael Fassbender, whom you may have seen as Burke in Jonah Hex (you probably didn't see that movie) or as Archie Hicox in Inglourious Basterds, has signed up to star in Prometheus. Prometheus is supposed to be something of an Alien prequel, and the details of Fassbender's role have yet to be revealed, but he's supposedly be playing an android opposite Noomi Rapace. The film is set for a summer 2012 release date. Not appealing? Check him out in the upcoming Shame, where he stars opposite Carey Mulligan. Or as Magneto in the soon-to-be-released X-Men: First Class. [HR]
