Here's our first hilariously crazy look at Michael Fassbender in a comedy called Frank. We also get a look at Domhnall Gleeson and Maggie Gyllenhaal in the film. The movie was directed by Lenny Abrahamson from a script written by The Men Who Stare at Goats author Jon Ronson and Peter Straughn. Here's the synopsis...
Frank is a comedy about a young wannabe musician, Jon (Gleeson), who discovers he's bitten off more than he can chew when he joins a band of eccentric pop musicians led by the mysterious and enigmatic Frank (Fassbender) and his terrifying sidekick Clara (Gyllenhaal).
Frank is based on the memoir by Jon Ronson and is a fictional story loosely inspired by Frank Sidebottom, the persona of cult musician and comedy legend Chris Sievey, as well as outsider musicians like Daniel Johnston and Captain Beefheart.
It's going to be fun watching Fassbender take on a quirky comedy role like this, he's always so damn serious. I'll be looking forward to checking this one out!
