Jackman_fassbender

During an interview for the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past (check out the stunning trailer HERE), Michael Fassbender and Hugh Jackman performed some excellent impressions of fellow X-Men star Ian McKellen.

Fassbender and McKellen both play Magneto in the film, and Fassbender's impression is pure genius. Jackman's is a bit less so, but still impressive. And James McAvoy demonstrated that he can pull off a laugh-inducing impression of Patrick Stewart.

Check out the giggles, AFTER THE JUMP...

Ben Affleck Will Totally Fill the Batman Codpiece, Producer Confirms

E! news reports that everyone was talking about Ben Affleck's manhood at the 25th Producers Guild of America last night.

Batman_affleckFirst CBS producer Chuck Lorre told the audience a story about using the urinal next to Affleck:

"Yes I peeked. And yes, Comic Con, he can play Batman."

And Affleck followed with his own gag:

"I was at the bar briefly, and I came back to my seat and somebody said, ‘You know, there was a guy up on stage who said you have a big d--k,'" the Oscar winner joked to the audience. "I was like, ‘You know, isn't that always how is goes? The one time it happens and I miss it!' Thank you very much. Whoever you are, God bless you. I'm often confused with Matt Damon but rarely with Michael Fassbender, so..."

Unfotunately the Man of Steel sequel has been pushed to May 6, 2016 so it'll be awhile before we're seeing that.

James Franco: Shame on 'Shame' for Being Shameful About Gay Sex

FrancoIn a brief essay for VICE praising Michael Fassbender for his work in Twelve Years a Slave, James Franco takes an aside to criticize the gay scene depicted in another Fassbender film, Shame:

He wasn’t such an addict in my opinion, though. I mean, what did he do? Watch porn and screw a handful of people a week? I could point to quite a few folks who do that. And that scene where he’s at his lowest point and wants to f--k and goes into a gay club, and it’s depicted like the seventh level of hell... I mean, it goes back to the horrible representations of gays in the 70s, where the gay club is meant to signify everything dark and depraved. Then the guy gets a minor blowj-b, from, Oh no, a man! The horror!
