Michael Fassbender has done it all, from serious dramas like "12 Years a Slave" to superhero movies like "X-Men" to biopics like "Steve Jobs." Almost added to his resume: a "Star Wars" movie.
"We talked about a role. We had a conversation," he said, referring to director J.J. Abrams. "I'm pretty sure I was busy doing something else in the summer he was kickstarting that."
Fassbender didn't say which role he was up for. Perhaps he talked about playing dashing pilot Poe Dameron, which eventually went to Oscar Isaac. It's also easy to see him as the sinister General Hux, played by Domhnall Gleeson. Or it's also likely that his conversation with Abrams was a general one, before the script was even finalized.
Still, there's always the possibility of Fassbender traveling to a galaxy far, far away in the future, in later "Star Wars" episodes or standalone films.
