Last night, I watched Hunger, the story of Bobby Sands hunger strike during the IRA prisoner protest of 1981. Michael Fassbender, who is rumored to play in The Hobbit and who plays Carl Jung to Viggo's Sigmund Freud in the upcoming A Dangerous Method, played Sands. It's a provocative, disturbing film, rather art-house in some ways. But during the film's coda, which is Sands hunger strike itself, Fassbender lost 32 pounds (14 kilos) so that he was nothing but a wasted skeleton by the final scenes. That an actor of this commitment is teamed with Viggo-I'll-live-with-my-sword in the new Cronenberg film should make for an interesting dynamic.
