hunger got him recognized as top tier acting talent but 300 is what got him noticed in the united states IMHO
but i'd give mcqueen more credit for letting fassbender stretch his acting wings tho but snyder more responsible for getting his face out there
anyways side note cavill and fassbender were both in blood creek lol
