Michael Fassbender on ‘The Counselor’



the-counselor-wallpaper-01Cormac McCarthy may have provided the basis for film version successes such as ‘No Country for Old Men’ and ‘The Road’  but ‘The Counselor’ marks his new venture into directly writing for the big screen.

And one person who praises the change in script is Michael Fassbender, the film’s star, who told The Hollywood Reporter that he was “just riveted by it” at a Cinema Society screening of ‘The Counselor‘ in Manhattan. “It was unusual that it was so dialogue-heavy, especially in the industry these days, and just the way he unraveled material, the information, how much he gave to the reader and how much he held back. I thought it was exquisitely done.”

The film marks Fassbender’s latest collaboration with director Ridley Scott after their work together on ‘Prometheus’. He has also been reunited with director, Steve McQueen, in his upcoming film, “12 Years A Slave” but Fassbender has said that he would be more than happy to work with any directors he has worked with in the past which includes Quentin Tarantino and David Cronenberg.

Fassbender’s fellow cast member, John Leguizamo, was pleased to be working alongside the ‘Prometheus’ star but didn’t expect to find himself in awe of Breaking Bad-ass, Dean Norris who also stars in ‘The Counselor’.

Leguizamo told THR: I’m going, ‘Who’s this f—ing great actor?’ I’m like, ‘What do you do man? I’ve never seen you before.’ He’s like, ‘I’m in this show called ‘Breaking Bad. ‘I was like, ‘What’s that? He was like, ‘Oh, it’s a TV show’…But later on I watched it because I was so impressed by him, and I was in awe. I was glad I hadn’t seen it because then I would’ve been like star struck.”

The Counselor hits UK cinemas on 15 November 2013
