Not to mention, the character is supposed to be in his mid-20s (at least, he was in "Alta´r's Chronicles"), whereas Fassbender is 35 and looks exactly his age - he's never been an actor who could play younger characters convincingly.

This is clearly an example of trying too hard to capitalize upon star power.

I wouldn't really mind it. I prefer Johnathan-Rhys Meyers for Altair and Henry Cavill for Ezio.

He's at least darker-skinned and, despite sharing a common ethnic heritage with Fassbender, he doesn't look nearly as stereotypically Irish. But I still think that an Arab character should be played by someone with actual Middle Eastern heritage (and, preferably, someone younger/younger-looking than 30).

My wife just asked me if we could be Christian Grey and Anastasia for Halloween. With a straight face. Wow.

As you can imagine, I've been speechless ever since.
