Michael Fassbender Bequeaths Us His Fabulous Shakespearean Fassboner On The SeXXXy Set Of Macbeth!

michael fassbender macbeth england set bleeding head sexy

To be or not to be, that is the question!

OK, to be fair, it's the question from one of William Shakespeare's different masterpieces, but who remembers anything about Macbeth anyway except for those witches brewing up a pot of toil and trouble?

Anyway, Michael Fassbender plays the titular lead in a new incarnation of the classic stage production - he's an ambitious Scottish general and there's a bunch of tragedy and stuff, LOLz!!

More to the point, cameras caught the charming actor on set in Surrey, England over the weekend - Mike looked hotter than a volcano and was twice as red, too!

That's because the dude had blood flowing out of a gaping gash on his forehead!! OUCH!

Hopefully that's makeup for his character, though, and not Fassypant's real blood!

Of course, were he really hurt, we would be more than willing to be his bedside nurse. Well, at least if Marion Cotillard, a.k.a. Lady Macbeth, doesn't mind!

Macbeth hits theaters in 2015 - see more pics of Fassbender and his fab Fassboner (below)!

Michael Fassbender To Go Insane For MacBeth!

michael fassbender macbeth

Michael Fassbender is set to get Shakespearean!

The babe that brought us Shame will be stretching his very large acting muscle once again as mad power hungry general in the film adaptation of William Shakespeare's Macbeth.

Is anyone else thinking about how seXXXy he'll look in uniform??!

The flick will include at least one other Hollywood heavyweight who has yet to be cast and is to be produced by the same crew who won the Oscar for The King's Speech.

The play has been brought to the big screen multiple times, but what is REALLY crazy about this version is it will be shot in its original Scottish language!

While that most likely just means a heavy accent, it'll definitely be a challenge…especially for this German!

But besides the language obstacle, such a complex and iconic character is quite the undertaking…

Do YOU think Michael is right for the legendary role??!

2012 London Olympics Opening Ceremony Inspired By The Tempest

Filed under: Paul McCartneyOlympics

Olympic london games

First we heard Sir Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Sir Mick Jagger, and John Lydon from the Sex Pistols were teaming up to perform at the 2012 London Olympic games, which was exciting enough, but this just keeps getting better and better!

Academy Award winning director Danny Boyle is serving as the ceremony's artistic director and revealed that the show has been inspired by William Shakespeare's The Tempest!

Boyle described the show's narrative as the recovery of land that has been poisoned by industrial legacy. The ceremony will commence with the ringing of a specially commissioned bell inscribed with a line from The Tempest: "Be not afeard; the isle is full of noises."

The "Isle of Wonders" themed live production on July 27th will last longer than 3 hours and also features the creative talents of director Stephen Daldry.

This is shaping up to be a pretty extravagant start to the Olympic games! Are U excited or what?
