Michael Fassbender talks ‘Prometheus’: “I want David to be doing a robot dance”

Mmm… Michael Fassbender in the morning. Always a pleasure. Bellydancer just sent me a tip about a new Fassy interview in a French publication – you can read it here if you speak French, or if you have Google Chrome, which offers you a sketchy translation. There’s also a really sexy photo of Fassy’s butt and his crazy strong legs. Oh, and Fassy’s 35th birthday is next Monday! How will you celebrate? By taking off your drawers and thinking about the Fassdong? God bless. Another shot from the magazine interview:

Dear God.

Fassy also has some new quotes in the latest issue of Empire Magazine, which has a cover story on Prometheus, which… looks so g–damn awesome. I discussed the first big trailer here. Fassy plays the android character, David, who he sees as like a cross between David Bowie and Lawrence of Arabia.

Fassbender on previous Alien androids: “I didn’t revisit or rewatch what Ian Holm did, but I remember it. I didn’t want to have as advanced an android as that.”

Fassbender describes David (Prometheus’s android) as “fastidious” and “almost like an anal butler.” Fassbender says, “The first thing I wanted to do was make him ambiguous. Is he f–king with you or is he being sincere? I don’t think he has any real moral compass. The humans are not ever nice to him – he’s a robot, there’s prejudice there. It’s interesting that human traits start to bleed into the robot.”

On his blonde Rutger Hauer hair: “I’m not as butch as Rutger Hauer in this,” Fassbender laughs. Instead, the look is modeled on TE Lawrence, a key inspiration for David’s creator, Peter Weyland. “I liked the idea of having a feminine quality to him,” says Fassbender. “Both Lawrence and David Bowie have elements of that. I haven’t suggested this to Ridley, but I want David to be doing a robot dance, in a secret disco room on the ship! I want him sitting there with a disco ball, and a floor that lights up!”

God, he’s so adorable. He does have a touch of Bowie to him, I think. Sigh…

And there’s more footage, interviews and teasers and stuff from Prometheus too. Yay!!!!

    Sweet Jesus. Just five minutes. I’ll sell you my soul for Just. Five. Minutes. With. This. Man.

    • Jazzmin says:

      Ramona please, if you are going to sell your soul do it for more than five minutes! you are going to need more than five with Fassy.

      • ramona says:

        I’d settle for five. The soul’s a bit filthy and probably not worth much on the free market…!

        Although you’re right. I’d need much, much more than five minutes for proper Fassy usage.

  2. DavidBowie says:

    Wow…I need a moment.

  3. Chatcat says:

    Kaiser…thank you for picture #2. I will have a much better day now~

  4. Maya says:

    Don’t hate me, Kaiser, but I had this dream about Fassbender last night that was very…realistic. Then I come here and see all this. Jesus Christ. It’s too much.

  5. Jazzmin says:

    I would suck whatever needed to be sucked/licked off him. I would call out sick from work, for I need to take my time. These types of task can’t be rushed.

  6. Nessa says:

    That second picture… I mean, really?? That I just ridiculous.

  7. momoftwo says:

    Thanks a lot…now I’m gonna be at preschool pickup with that image in my head!

  8. Cathy says:

    Now I’m gonna have that picture in my mind all day long…it’s gonna be a great day.

  9. Gene Parmesan says:

    i’ve spontaneously combusted!! Oh lord. In that second pic he was undressing for me, but when i saw his abs and those muscles i keeled over. He is looking down at me like ‘baby aren’t you up for this’? needless to say i came back up!

  10. ClumsyMe says:

    2nd pic!!!!!!!! Made my day!!!!!!! Good day!!!!!

  11. TheOriginalKitten says:

    I want Fassy to be my anal butler! Sorry, that was gross.
    But seriously the second pic…I feel like I need to go home now and TCB, if you know what I’m saying..

  12. Astrid says:

    Wow, made my day. And I learned Fassy and I share the same birthday – what a treat. I’ll be thinking of him and picture No. 2 on our special day.

  13. Lisa says:


    tee hee…

  14. Lauren says:

    Oh my..Fassy has an intoxicating physique. Folks have mentioned his yellow teeth..easily fixed. You cannot buy the kind of animal magnetism this man emenates sitting at a bus stop! Hop On the Magic Bus! I could cuddle him all day long.

  15. Eve says:

    So…again the robot is going to be the best thing about this? Because Ash (the cold bastard played by Ian Holm) and Bishop (the suspicious looking cyborg who turns out to be decent) are my favourite things in the Alien movies (also, the marmalade cat — I admit it: the only reason I rooted for Ripley was because I wanted her to save the cat).

    I know they’ve been saying it’s not related to the Alien franchise, but it looks soooo damn much like that to me.

    P.S.: Bah! I actually hoped I was the first one to send those links (because I’d totally try to trade that for having my crushes featured here more often).

  16. Memory27 says:

    I love this man so bad I watch anything with him in it like the dumb ass movie Haywire or something it sucks he dies :( he’s hottt!!! :P

  17. Bellydancer says:

    See this is why a bitch like me saves up her personal/sick days from work cuz when this movie finally comes out I will remember this post/pictures and need to take a few days off work while imagining Fassbender disco dancing and pretending to be an anal butler in my ladygarden.
    I will literally be thinking he is Rutger Hauer (think Nighthawks) while in deep trance and tugging at my nipples while my bootleg copy of Prometheus plays in the background.
    My sweetshop will then get destroyed with a rolled up copy of Obsession magazine and if I can’t get a copy I will print several copies off the internet roll them up to resemble the Fassdong’s girth and…..I think you bitches get the picture.
    P.S. No posts about his teeth unless he is using them to do naughty things like tugging at your…..whatever.

    • podzol says:

      ZOMG this is so much better than any 50 Shades of Bull$hit! I’m laughing so hard right now.

      • Bellydancer says:

        Pod you just don’t know the Fasslove is still strong in me and my ladygarden. I am riding the dong until one of us has to get social security and retires.
        My lover is still going strong with his new summer blockbuster coming up. I love the alien fanchise yes even avp.
        I am so looking forward to seeing his android omg can you imagine him malfunctioning while disco dancing against you. Whew he is humping you disco style and you accidently bend over to pick up a bracelet you dropped (stay with me) your ass is tooted up towards david(android name) and he grabs you round your waist and starts grinding you whilst on your knees. He is attuned to seeking heat since he is always cold so he zeroes in on your warm spot and starts rubbing….gotta go Kaiser is unsheathing her dagger.

      • podzol says:

        I’m soooo not doubting your Fasslust :) But you’ve got storytelling abilities and creativity, Belly, and you need to put it to feature-writing, PRONTO. And then call the Fass as a meeting excuse. 2 in 1!!

      • emma bee says:

        i think we can all write something at least equal to 50 shades of bull$hit. our aim should be to do so, then maneuver our way to hollywood and mf. if i ever reach any degree of success, i pledge to bring you two aboard.

        as for these pictures…guh. just guh. how’d they get him to drop his clothes for this shoot and not the others? i guess mf sheds his clothes easily and willingly lol.

      • podzol says:

        @Emma Bee: pair up Mr Fassy(no)pants with Jean-Baptiste Mondino and great things happen for the viewer’s sake. Whether they are skin-tight leather pants wet with a bucket of water for the NY Times, scrimmaging with Mia Wasikowska for W, and tip-toeing naked to his clothes here… all hail the Mondino for these glorious shoots. Even if Michael looks like Early Man on this picture!

        PS: yes, definitely this would be a fearsome MF business trio. Am working on catchy smutty book title as I type — stay tuned ;)

      • emmabee says:

        i was remiss! it didn’t even cross my mind to check out who was behind this shoot! and i see your point about early man lol. awaiting your catchy book title.

        50 shades is much worse than i expected. haven’t read it, but watched this dramatic reading by cookie monster and collapsed laughing. must show you:

      • podzol says:

        OMGhahahHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! *wheezing*
        This is GOLD. Especially the part about smutty tampon-yanking (can you tell I’ve not read 50 Shades of Bloody Red?!) — what is this car wreck, and why did 10 studio execs practically claw each other out to get the highest bid?

        Btw, there’s about 4-5 other photos from the shoot that just hit the web and …sigh, he looks delish in fashionable clothes. ‘Especially the henley+combat boots.

    • emmabee says:

      pls delete – oops posted in wrong place

  18. JM says:

    Holy mother of Jesus!!!! Every cell in my body just stood at attention!

    I can’t wait for this movie because I’ll actually be able to convince my hubby to go. He hates the movies but LOVES the Alien franchise. Therefore, he’ll be happily preoccupied with the sci-fi violence while I quietly drool through the entire picture. Win-Win situation!

  19. podzol says:

    Celebitches, that Obsession interview was really substantially interesting to read. AND featured him in his birthday suit. Ding ding ding!

  20. Maria says:

    MADRE MIA QUE HOMBRE!!!!! 2º pic is making my day, and week too cos im keeping it on my disc.


  21. ramona says:

    Oh yeah – one other thought – Michael Fassbender, in that second photo, SPEAKING FRENCH TO YOU. “Qu’est-ce qui a fait ce bruit?”

    “Oh, nothing darling – just my jaw, hitting the ground in awe whilst admiring your navel. Carry on dropping trou.”

  22. Stacie says:

    I so LOVE him . I just don’t wanna share him with all of you guys .

  23. Stacie says:

    He’s so Lovely and Charming . I would love to wake it to that face every morning . My birthday was this past Monday , Michael’s is this coming Monday . It must be FATE !!!.

  24. Tara says:

    The right comment here is OMIGOD
    I’m his age and I shouldn’t stare and drool like a teenager, but I guess baby is just too much. How can anyone be so talented, smart, funny, sexy as hell and even gorgeous? There should be laws against this!

  25. T.C. says:

    Oh Kaiser,

    I’m officially dead. *swoons to the floor* please send Fassy to revive me.

  26. Addison says:

    This man! He is too much.

    I always check for posts about Michael on CB every morning. After picture #2, I was Wide Awake! Dear God, that picture should be illegal. I can’t concentrate now, I might be distracted while driving as well. Not good…

    I’ve just kept thinking of that #2 pic all morning. I’m sure it will stay with me all day. I had to share it with a co-worker as we were riding the elevator to the cafeteria to get lunch. On the way back SHE was still thinking of the picture. I tell her she is blessed to know me, because without me she would not know who MF is.

  27. TheOriginalKitten says:

    Third time back to look at these pics. God help me…..
