Michael Fassbender Was In Talks For Role In ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’

Michael Fassbender is currently bringing the video game Assassin’s Creed to life on the big screen. However, the actor recently revealed he could have been part of a galaxy far, far away.

Speaking to MTV’s Josh Horowitz on the Happy Sad Confused podcast, Fassbender said he sat down with J.J. Abrams about a role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

“We talked about a role,” Fassbender said. “We had a conversation. I’m pretty sure I was busy doing something else in the summer he was kick-starting that.”

Fassbender didn’t reveal which role. Perhaps, it was for the pilot Poe Dameron, which was played by Oscar Isaac. Maybe Kylo Ren?
