Interview with Michael Fassbender

With his combination of fearless physicality and intense intellect, Michael Fassbender is poised to become the next Daniel Day-Lewis. Not surprisingly, he also turned out to be the most engaging and humble interview subject that one could hope for. We spoke at length about the differences between working with “Fish Tank” director Andrea Arnold versus Steve McQueen (“Hunger”) and Quentin Tarantino (“Inglourious Basterds”); about applying theatrical training to film; and, yes, even about that highly disturbing centerpiece of “Fish Tank.”
