The meteoric rise of Michael Fassbender continues with a role opposite one of Hollywood's other hot up-sand-comers.
Fassbender has joined Noomi Rapace ("The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo") in Ridley Scott's "Prometheus," reported Heat Vision. Fassbender will play an android in the film, which was originally meant as a prequel to "Alien."
