That Michael Fassbender is quite the chameleon, isn't he? He's like a male Kate Winslet, seamlessly dashing between contemporary and old-timey roles. Few (if any) actors today are as versatile. From Spartan times to the swingin' '60s, it seems as though Fassbender has tackled almost every major movie-friendly era.

So it's no surprise that iconic director David Cronenberg cast Fassbender as Carl Jung in 'A Dangerous Method,' which hits theaters this week. Fassbender melts into his role as the conflicted psychiatrist struggling with his relationships with frosty mentor Sigmund Freud (Viggo Mortensen), unhinged patient/lover Sabina Spielrein (Keira Knightley) and his long-suffering wife, Emma (Sarah Gadon).
