It’s really no surprise that Michael Fassbender, one of the most workaholic actors in Hollywood is giving Robert Downey Jr. a run for his money! Maybe ‘Frank’ star wants to oust him as the highest paid actor in Hollywood. ‘Iron Man 3’ actor is definitely fighting back, especially with the new rumors that he will be joining Michael Fassbender in ‘Assassin’s Creed’.

The rumor mill of Hollywood is claiming that the highest paid actor in Hollywood has “signed on to play Leonardo da Vinci in the movie adaptation of ‘Assassin’s Creed’”, according to Cinema Blend. This is the biggest casting news for ‘Assassin’s Creed’ since… well Michael Fassbender got involved, that is.

‘Frank’ actor has been working so much that it looks like he is about to challenge Robert Downey Jr.’s position as the highest paid actor in Hollywood. Between 2014 and 2015, Michael Fassbender has released eight movies, including the most recent ‘X-Men: Days of the Future Past’ and most anticipated ‘The Light Between Oceans’.

The word on the street is that Michael Fassbender works so much that it’s impossible for him to keep a girlfriend! He admitted to GQ on February 2012 that he chooses work over romance.

"I’m kind of selfish with the hours that I put into the work," he continued. "I think the longest relationship that I've been in was two years. I started [acting] when I was 17, so I guess in my dating, adult life, that kind of covers it."

“It’s not fair on somebody to be waiting for you,” the actor told GQ. “You spend long periods of time apart and then when I am here, I’m working.”
