Michael Fassbender Is the Face of Apple in 'Steve Jobs' First Trailer: VIDEO

Steve jobs

The first trailer for Danny Boyle and Aaron Sorkin's steve jobs/ has been released, giving us a first glimpse of Michael Fassbender as the eccentric Apple co-founder who passed in October 2011.

The Guardian reports:

The German-Irish actor is seen in full briefly at the end of the trailer, receiving applause from the crowd at a product launch – expected to be the 1998 unveiling of the first iMac. Other than that, we only see him in profile from behind as audio from the film plays out.

“You can’t write code. You are not an engineer. What do you do?,” asks Seth Rogen’s Steve Wozniak, incredulously. Replies Jobs: “The musicians play the instruments. I play the orchestra … I sat in a garage and invented the future … Because artists lead and hacks ask for a show of hands.”

The part of Jobs had previously been eyed by George Clooney, Chirstian Bale, and Leonardo Dicaprio. The film stars Fassbender, Kate Winslet, Seth Rogen, and Jeff Daniels and arrives in theaters October 9.

Screen Shot 2014-05-04 at 1.16.12 PM

If you’re like me, you probably think Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy would make a really great couple. They could even have a cute "couple" name like Fassvoy or McAssbender.

Screen Shot 2014-05-04 at 1.19.59 PMOkay, nevermind, scratch that idea...

Regardless, a good portion of the internet also thinks the two belong in a relationship, as there appears to be a great deal of fan-made slash fiction about the dream couple and their wonderfully domesticated life together.

As guests on Friday's episode of The Graham Norton Show, the X-Men: Days of Future Past stars were treated to the very best selections of this fanfic, with the duo having a fun time exploring the dynamics and scenarios of their hypothetical relationship.

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!
