Michael Fassbender's 'Assassin's Creed' Casts Ariane Labed

Michael Fassbender chats with friends while out and about on Tuesday (June 23) in London, England.

The 38-year-old actor is set to star in the upcoming movie Assassin’s Creed, based on the famous video game, and a new actress was just cast alongside him!

Ariane Labed is set to join the film in a role that was once rumored to be going to Alicia Vikander, according to Deadline.

This would be the most high profile role yet for Ariane, who won the Best Actress award at the Venice Film Festival in 2010.

    Labed was nominated to Césars this year too and stars The Lobster too. Not a famous name yet but an actress with merits =) Good casting!

  • Ause Ekel

    hahahahahhaaha you mean Harvey’s girl? She was probably with an eye on him somehwere hidden, like in that pic at AMFAR. And guess who’s the fat bold guy with her on the table? Weinstein… http://goo.gl/bNPbeo

  • NerW

    You never gets tired lol
    Fassbender and Cotillard are good company lmfaoThey get along very well http://www.gettyimages.com/detail/news-photo/of-twc-harvey-weinstein-and-actress-marion-cotillard-attend-news-photo/474299920
    Why do your posts sound familiar? LOL

  • Ause Ekel

    HAHAHAHAHHHAHAHAHAHHHAHA since you already know about Alicia’s connection with Weinstein, can you explain to me WHY she attended the premiere of Escape from Planet Earth in early 2014? Or August Osage County in December 2013? And why does she look at him as if he was a God? Please explain to me. Vikander IS A WEINSTEIN GIRL. Soon she’ll wear Marchesa LOL Dickbender is with her because he needs to be in a stable relationship after those Sony emails and she needs a famous boyfriend to be noticed abroad.

  • LenaAFoster

    Hi Lola! Hope you are well too. :)

  • Polly S.

    Thinking man’s Blake Lively has more chemistry with Harvey Pigstein than with Fassbender.

  • Lola

    Hey girl! I think I have finally read – as much as I can read – about PR relationships, so sorry to say I NOW get the convo from the last thread. He, he … Some odd reads indeed.

  • Lola

    Pknik! I’m glad to read from you!

  • Lola

    LMAO! The attachment? I have to say, while in the Madalina thread it seemed to be a “cloak and dagger” train of thought -what is happening here? type of thing-, this time around it’s beyond odd.
    From what I have read elsewhere – when they are photographed together -it seems- like most of the time is with other people – like she is being chaperoned!
    Then you get the posts of why there are no pictures of him with his fans – seems like he is declining to take those pics with fans according to what is being tweeted and the Bam, a pic that says is in one place -with fans- but could be in another place -with her friend disguised as fans???… We did see that before, right? But, I got the popcorn! Need to buy some more, lol!

  • Lola

    Don’t know who Labed is … but read that she was born in Greece … and according to this, playing the role AV would have gotten …. NOW I get why some posters were commenting – elsewhere- how AV had olive tone skin… me thinking WHAT!!! this young woman is white and uses a lot of spray tanning … olive skin tone … right …..

  • Ause Ekel

    Hahahahhaha true! And Dickbender has more chemistry with a F1′s car than with Harvey’s girl…pr couples are the worst.

  • Ause Ekel

    She’s French, I read her parents are both French and was raised in France it seems. Funny is that they confirmed W-Girl and ONE day later Labed was announced in AC and Watson in The Circle hahaha it’s clear she lost her role in the last one, Weinstein asked people to announce she chose to leave it to do AC or Bourne (both with one producer in common, besides Dickbender involved) to seem she was in demand and then…she didn’t get any other offer. Circle ship had already sailed and Her boyfriend probably doesn’t wanna spend another year in a fake fling so she had to be in Bourne. Hollywood baby, welcome!

  • Lola

    Never mind, was able to see the pic.

  • Lola

    Can you post another link to see the pic? Thanks

  • Lola

    So, Marion C. introduced Labed to Fassbender? LOL! Just messing… I just hope there is some ethnic diversity to AC, just like in the games.

    I don’t know about how an actor gets a role (besides the whole auditioning thing). You seem to know how it’s done, etc. I find your post instructional! :-)

    For me, the whole “it girl” backfired to a degree, especially with some of the articles out there and how writers describe her. What -at first- I did not noticed and then became odd was how posters when they write about how “great” AV is they seem to almost always compare her with actresses that have acted /worked with Fassbender. I find it odd, as if I am supposed to believe – due to what? subliminal messaging- that the movie MF and AV did together is going to be by far better than Shame, 12YRS and Jane Eyre?

  • Lola

    The ladies on LSA – I believe – have the article of them eating at a Posh Restaurant in Sweden. Wonder who paid? ;-)
    The prominent restaurant pic have them sitting next to each other with a bit of distance and with others at the table. The article was so specific about the PDA, gum, etc. that it just seemed odd … BUT it was hilarious! -

  • Lola

    Don’t forget the “rake about town.” :-)

  • NerW

    I know you’re ubiquitous. JJ,YouTube,forums,every online article mentioning Cotillard,Fassbender and Vikander.How old are you? Have you something to study,a work to do?lol
    Being in the movie isn’t a requisite to attend a movie premiere lol Is Vikander in one of his next movies? I thought the Sony emails questioned his bankability,not his relationships.

    Isn’t it love? lmfao
    Dickbender LOL I guess you don’t call him dickbender on a rather popular bags forum!LOL

  • Ause Ekel

    I don’t think so, there are a lot of actors in France and Labed only became more well-known over there recently. It’s not impossible that Marion might have had a word in this but I doubt it. What I do think is that Labed wasn’t found in ONE day only. She was either a plan B or she was always the one chosen and they announced Vikander in talks to make her sound in demand in the industry (although we all know she would be cast because of Dickbender). Well, a have a few friends who play AC and they told me that they’re not bothred by this casting. It really depends on the plot and where the story takes place and on the first games characters are basically white.

    I know a few people who work in showbiz and I’ve seen behind the scenes’ interviews and read many articles about it and it’s a very complex world. Sometimes we see actors getting roles after auditioning, others the director chooses who he/she wants, producers have a word too, etc. It really depends on the situation. But it’s really hard to believe that Weinstein cast AV in Tulip Fever, with a leading role, in early 2014 because of A Royal Affair. There are tons of foreign actors who have Oscar-nominated films in foreign category every single year and most never make it to Hollywood. It would only make sense if she had landed all these eight roles she has this year, besides Danish Girl and Bourne, AFTER the success of Ex Machina. People compare her to Chastain but Chastain took 7 years to start having good roles and she’s American! How can a 25 year-old Swedish actress make it to Hollywood after only a few years of career in her own country and no big roles abroad? LOL And she has been linked to Weinstein since late 2013 at least, TWO YEARS before her films with him came out and they were all shot in 2014. Besides the MET, the AMFAR stage and all those magazine covers early this year, even before Ex Machina, an indie film, came out. WEINSTEIN GIRL.

    TLBO? It will probably have a 2016 release and it WON’T be better than Shame or 12 Years. Who the hell said that? AV’s fans? hahaha

  • Ause Ekel

    Dude, I comment in articles about many celebs LOL Dickbender, Harvey’s Girl and Cotillard aren’t the only ones that interest me. You are the one who’s too sick and is trying to see where I interact but my profile is private, it doesn’t cocern you where I comment. I have almost 200 comments here, in multiple articles. On the other hand, everybody here knows you only WORK with ONE purpose: defend Weinstein girl and her fake relationship with Dickbender. You’re either a friend of hers who is unemployed or a really bad PR.

    And to clarify, the whole industry and the media know AV is a Weinstein girl, you can deny it how many times you want it that this won’t become a lie.

  • Ause Ekel

    Sweden is the only country interested in this fake relationship hahaha and because Weinstein Girl calls the paps à la Kate Bosworth. She’s another famehore in Dickbender’s life.

  • NerW

    Someone is angry loool Everybody,the whole industry looooool
    Only YOU Ause Ekel/other monikers. Right,just an unemployed person could be ubiquitous like you. lol Do you call him dickbender on a rather popular bags forum?loooool

  • Ause Ekel

    Of course I do LOL people who know my comments know what I think about him. The guy is a good actor but he has a pretty bad image towards women and we all know he treats women like objects, just for sex. Sorry Weinstein Girl’s fan. But I don’t know why you bother so much in trying to convince people they’re real when even your friend doesn’t seem very interested in him…I’m sure she rather bang a young guy. I’m not angry but you seem to be because you have no excuses to prove AV isn’t a Weinstein Girl. How much is she paying you to do this? I mean, how much is Weinstein paying you? It must be a lot cause I gotta admit: you’re INVESTED! Good luck in infiltrating all over social networks and forums to talk about Harvey’sgirl and how much she loves Dickbender and deserved all “success” she has.

  • NerW

    How old are you? lmao No,you don’t looool You’re revoltingly sugary on that rather popular bags forum. That’s the truly fascinating and funny thing. Nutty fans who become crazy when their idols date someone. Good luck to you. You’ll be very busy spreading your venom. I’m not the person online 24/7 EVERYWHERE,speaking about NOT invested people loooool

  • Ause Ekel

    Of course you’re not, you don’t have multiple account on many forums and social networks to only talk about W. Girl and Dickbender, no, you have a life hahaha. But you can tell Weinstein girl that her strategy to conquer Hollywood by sleeing with Harvey and having a fake relationship won’t help her win an Oscar. Unless she wanna become another Gretchen Moll. Good luck Alicia’s freak =)

  • NerW

    Conquer Hollywood loooool
    You’ve still not explained why you don’t call him dickbender on that rather popular bags forum. That’s what I want to know. lmao
    Are you more a Cotillard’s freak or a Fassbender’s freak? loooool
    There’re much better activities to do at your age than spreading venom online 24/7 about people who don’t GAF about you. I have a life,a family,other interests and better things to do than argue with you. 😉

  • Ause Ekel

    Hahahahahahaha wait, have you explained why Alicia Vikander isn’t a Weinstein Girl? Stop trying to change the subject Alicia’s pr/friend. Btw, it’s a bit late in Sweden/London right now, you shouldn’t be online on a Saturday night, should you, freak? Wait, you’re working, I forgot. But you should ask Weinstein or Paula Woods to give you a break on weekends, even though you probably don’t have any friends or relatives who can stand you hahaha

  • Ause Ekel

    =)

  • Ause Ekel

    The thing in Hollywood is that celebs don’t care if people say positive or negative things. If they’re on the spotlight everything is fine. It will be sad if Dickbender do the Cumberbatch and marries Weinstein Girl. I hope he isn’t that dumb. Better have a fame of dating co-stars than marrying a Weinstein Girl for business.

  • Pknik

    LOl…the ever present gum….does Fassy have a PR person specifically for the gum?

  • Lola

    LMAO!!! You mean the gum handler? Yeah, I think he has three actually, one for cinnamon, the other for peppermint and the other for the most important one, nicotine gum.

  • Lola

    Well, did he not have some sort of “scare” with Madalina G.? -heck she even gave an interview of him putting a ring on it! (think it was Vanity Fair italy) – So… who knows girl … the man does not seem to learn… who knows….

  • Lola

    I give you this, they are BOTH in on the “relationship” for PR purposes, so I feel sorry for no one … and darn woman … where you get your info?

  • Blender

    Fassbender is not dignified and humble in the least. He is not worthy but hopped on the casting couch for parts and connections. Fassbender is a bigtime low-minded slea*ze bucket that has se*x with anything easy and has cheated with other women he met and hit on while filming Jobs. He got drunk at a private party in Cannes and had se*x with an assistant on his payroll, and Vikander found out, compensating in the GP photo ops outside the agreement of pap strolls. Of the two, he is MUCH worse than Vikander and I feel sorry that she has to be stuck with such an insolent unfair grease bucket.

    Their relationship is a Weinstein-Woods setup but Fassbender is fully complicit on the control of PR. He has being doing PR stunts and contacting paps since the beginning of his career like most foreign actors trying to get in Hollywood. He always wanted to be a moviestar for the excesses not for the merit integrity and growth of being an authentic actor. All the wannabe A listers are the same and Fassbender is an aging false charmer who is really an arrogant entitled cheat and a total creep. Honestly he will get nailed by a gold digger sl*t like the romanian that will use him like he uses others, especially women, in deceit.

  • Lola

    My thoughts are based on that people in Purse Forum and Fassbender Tea – this I found out while reading LSA- … it’s amazing the convos and all you find out in a non stop info shop! Love it! …. anyways, people at those sites were playing “Where in the world is MF? Is he in London, why is he not in Canada? … and then the newbs at PF talking about Sweden … that he was in Sweden… then the radio silence was OVER … the story and pictures emerge … with all the details! LOL! -way to many details …
    —–
    I’m wondering if they BOTH make money out of the -pap- pictures they take together? How’s the tally? Australia, NY, GP, Sweden… are there more? So, a cut for the pap, his side, her side … who knows….

  • Lola

    Wrote the Marion C. comment as a joke, people saying that Fassbender and her have better chemistry that Fassbender and AV.

    I do prefer that if a character has a certain background, that actors with that background at least be allowed to audition.

    I understand what you are saying. Do you know if there has ever been an article in a respected Entertainment outlet that has spoken about how Hollywood makes it’s business?

    I noticed what people write and found the comparisons interesting. Specially because they were very pushy with the arguments. They write that they have been following her work for years, etc… do wonder if AV falls on the Madalina G. category, meaning that people were writing that Madalina G. and her friend used to check this site and even comment … would AV do the same or at least her friends? jum….

    http://fassytea.tumblr.com/ main tumblr and found mainly two gossip sites with threads on him

    I left his observers during that romanian scandal. Just saw Slow West which was eh and I’m not fond of him again after reading up on him and from hearing third hand rumors of his tasteless philandering. I was shocked to read he is even worse than the gross rumors!!

    I hope Fassbender doesn’t have kids and wife anyday because they will search the net and it would be very humiliating on them with all his foul gossip. Modern men can’t dream towards the future and they let themselves get so mentally screwed up if they weren’t raised right and taught better. They’re decent in career but piss poor in love life.

    You’d think Fassbender would learn from that romanian scare. I’m disappointed that I can’t respect or believe in him. He might do the nice guy routine to get what he wants but once you see through him, Fassbender’s lousier than Mickey Rourke!

  • Lola

    I am so hijaking this convo between you and Ause Ekel … …
    First, from a 3rd party point of view … learn when to quit girl!, Ause Ekel BURNED you about a mile ago… Second, I have notice a difference in the type of writing of people posting on MF threads, boards, etc… back with the last GF, sure you had teens, but also women in the mid 20′s and so forth … now it seems that some places are plagued by just very young women, probably teens that kinda look like AV and have this fantasy of dating an actor and why can’t MF be the actor — type of mentality.

    With all the Sony leaks talk, even if Fassbender has said he does not read these site – and personally I believe the guy – there seems , imho, to be this fatal optimism disguised as being a fan… with an ounce of “I hope he reads here and falls for me because I kinda look like her and I have said great things about her and that is the grown up thing to do …” mentality.

    Just saying …. please, feel free to continue with your convo … :-)

    Hi Lola! From anons on tumblr blogs! I bet she’s sending stuff herself!Ahahah!! This is Cumberbatch all over again! Ahahah!!!! I don’t doubt they are a real couple,if they/she are using it for PR purposes it’s standard procedure.

  • Lola

    Wait, who is sending stuff?

  • amaryllis22

    Blender? Kidding,she’s the type of gullible fan who believes everything she reads. The fassytea tumblr has three anons ahahahah posting at the same time stuff about him sleeping with them. The average age of tumblr users is 15,oh well! ahahahah The last time I saw this craziness was for Cumberbatch! Poor Sophie Hunter and poor Alicia Vikander!

  • amaryllis22

    Much of the Fassy stuff comes from insta accounts and it’s tweeted,like the dinner in Sweden.

  • Lola

    She can believe what she wants to. If she understands that he is not an actor she can back up, she can have that opinion.

    The truth of the man could be somewhere in the middle. But, he has given interviews talking about sex and there is stuff out there about him, I mean … I think on the last thread (MG) someone posted videos of him in Argentina. An actual video, no stills…. So, in a way, you do see how these comments start – regardless if they are true or not.- In a way, he already provided the material.
