Birthday Boy: Michael Fassbender
Insert penis joke here. No seriously doesn't it seem like that's what people first think of when you say Michael Fassbender's name nowadays? Luckily he's a talented enough actor that it'llall probably blow over. Pun intended. Maybe.
Anyways, he turned 35 today coming off a breakout year where he appeared in the rest of the films that Jessica Chastain and Ryan Gosling weren't in. Joking aside, 2011 really was an incredible year for him playing roles from Rochester to Magneto and working with directors such as David Cronenberg and Steve McQueen. A few, like me, first saw him briefly in Quentin Tarantino's 2009 film Inglourious Basterds or perhaps even his work across the pond like Fish Tank and Hunger, but now that he's practically a household name (or at least his genitalia is) he's definitely here to stay. All I can say is... yes, please.
