The "hotter" thing can be superficial, and changeable. James has been a constant and respected actor, and he was invited to be a member of the Academy two years ago even without being nominated; Fassbender hasn't. So I think it's a good position to be in, and it says a lot about his staying power as an actor, even when he's not in big Hollywood productions.

So to have someone here claiming James has "no star power" is laughable (and no, the "someone" isn't you, Angamb). Danny Boyle wouldn't chose a nobody to be the protagonist of his next film. And the producers of Jessica Chastain's next film wouldn't chose a guy with no star power to star alongside her - remembering that The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby are two films, and one is called "HIM".
