A year after his starring role in Inglorious Basterds, actor Michael Fassbender followed up with Centurion, a movie with striking similarities to Inglorious Basterds.
In both movies, Fassbender showcases his zesty talent for nailing different languages and accents:
Michael Fassbender in Inglorious Basterds: "drei Gläser!" (oops, busted as a Brit!)
Michael Fassbender in Centurion: "Ky-eer me-yeejet!"
In both movies, characters hide silently under the floorboards:
Shosanna (Mélanie Laurent) hides silently under the floorboards
Quintus Dias (Fassbender) hides silently under the floorboards
In both movies, a uniquely gifted tracker hunts down human prey:
Christoph Waltz plays the gifted Jew Hunter
Olga Kurylenko plays the gifted Roman Hunter
Interesting and funny! I think the Centurion script writers were just having a little meta fun with Fassbender's previous role. And for that, we thank them.
