MICHAEL FASSBENDER (Paul) is enjoying a phenomenal run of critically acclaimed performances, garnering numerous accolades and awards including the Best Actor award at the Venice Film Festival and a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actor for Steve McQueen's Shame. The National Board of Review has awarded Fassbender with the Spotlight Award and the LA Film Critics Association named him Best Actor for his performances in both Shame and Davide Cronenberg's drama A Dangerous Method in which he plays Carl Jung opposite Keira Knightley and Viggo Mortensen. He was also recently seen in Matthew Vaugh's X-Men: First Class, as Erik Lehnsherr, better known as super-villain Magneto as well as Rochester in Cary Joji Fukunaga's Jane Eyre. Fassbender co-starred in Quentin Tarantino's 2009 blockbuster Inglourious Basterds, sharing with his fellow actors the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture as well as the Critics' Choice Award for Best Acting Ensemble. In June 2012, Fassbender will co-star in Ridley Scott's Prometheus opposite Charlize Theron and Noomi Rapace.

Fassbender previously starred as the late hunger striker Bobby Sands in Steve McQueen's true-life drama Hunger. The performance earned him the British Independent Film Award (BIFA) and Irish Film and Television Award (IFTA) for Best Actor, a London Film Critics Award and Best Actor honors from the 2008 Stockholm and Chicago International Film Festivals. He was honored at the latter festival the following year, as Best Supporting Actor, for his performance in Andrea Arnold's Fish Tank. This performance brought him BIFA and IFTA nominations as well as his second London Film Critics Circle Award. He was also an IFTA nominee for his performance in Marc Munden's miniseries "The Devil's Whore."

Born in Germany and raised in Ireland, Fassbender is a graduate of London's prestigious Drama Centre. His breakthrough role came as Sgt. Burton "Pat" Christenson in HBO's epic, award-winning miniseries "Band of Brothers."

After making his feature film debut in Zack Snyder's blockbuster 300, Fassbender's subsequent credits include Joel Schumacher's Blood Creek, James Watkins' Eden Late, Jimmy Hayward's Jonah Hex, Francois Ozon's Angel and Neil Marshall's Centurion.
