As if it isn’t already hard enough being a college student, trying desperately to fit in among tens of thousands of peers while coping with the pressures of studying, self-esteem and just general survival away from our parents, it doesn’t help when Michael Fassbender shows up strutting his big ol’ dong around campus. But that’s apparently what happened on Saturday, as the gentleman we lovingly refer to as Michael F. Assbender at FilmDrunk and, much more importantly, Natalie Portman showed up at Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium to film part of their “Untitled Terrence Malick Project”.
So what’s this sucker about that it was so worth causing a stir during the incredible 56-50 slugfest victory that the Texas Longhorns pulled out over the Baylor Bears?
Two intersecting love triangles. Obsession and betrayal set against the music scene in Austin, Texas.
Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz *snores, farts, wakes up* Sounds awesome. But if you are a male Texas student who was threatened by Fassbender’s presence the gravitational pull of his Longhorn, just know that it could have been much worse. Ryan Gosling’s in this film, too. And I don’t think that UT has a flood evacuation plan.
Video and some fan shots after the jump. Oh, and maybe practice a little harder on defense this week, Baylor. Yeesh.
