Michael Fassbender stars in "Shame," opposite Carey Mulligan and Hannah Ware, as Brandon, and David Cronenberg's "A Dangerous Method," opposite Keira Knightley and Viggo Mortensen, as Carl Jung.

Fassbender recently starred in "X-Men: First Class," as Erik Lehnsherr / Magneto, and "Jane Eyre," alongside Mia Wasikowska and Jamie Bell, as Edward Rochester. Fassbender was also one of the main characters in Quentin Tarantino's blockbuster "Inglourious Basterds" and shared 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.

He previously starred as the late hunger striker Bobby Sands in Steve McQueen's "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 Circle 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." The latter portrayal 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."

Fassbender's upcoming films include David Cronenberg's drama "A Dangerous Method," as Carl Jung opposite Keira Knightley and Viggo Mortensen; Steven Soderbergh's ensemble action thriller "Haywire," with Ewan McGregor and Antonio Banderas; and, in an imminent re-teaming with Steve McQueen, the relationships story "Shame."

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 the award-winning epic miniseries "Band of Brothers." After making his feature film debut in Zack Snyder's blockbuster "300," his subsequent movies included Joel Schumacher's "Blood Creek"; James Watkins' "Eden Lake"; Jimmy Hayward's "Jonah Hex"; François Ozon's "Angel," with Romola Garai; and Neil Marshall's "Centurion," opposite Imogen Poots of "Jane Eyre."
