Michael Fassbender is perfect for the role of Harry Hole, Norway’s version of “Dirty Harry” – his unorthodox methods frustrate his superiors – and always draw out the worst in his adversaries.
According to IMDB:
“Fassbender bought drinks for the whole crew after a long day of shooting. The next day, rigging electrician Karl Andre Bru walked up to the famous actor and said jokingly: “thanks for the hangover, man!”. Rumor has it Fassbender cracked up and was unable to keep a straight face for the rest of the day.”
How about this trivia as well:
“Costars Michael Fassbender and Charlotte Gainsbourg have both played extreme sex addicts for the directors they’re best associated with; Fassbender in Steve McQueen’s Shame (2011) and Gainsbourg in Lars von Trier’s Nymphomaniac: Vol. I (2013) / Nymphomaniac: Vol. II (2013)”.
