Re: The Official Lex Luthor Casting Thread - Part 6
Fassbender's role in 300 wasn't any more substantial than other roles he'd had up to that point, so I'd say if anyone deserves credit for "discovering" him and showing the world that this was a great actor, it would be Steve McQueen, who gave him his first really meaty lead role 2 years later in Hunger.
