If you want the chance to see Michael Fassbender and those blue, blue eyes (come on, you know) then you better be quick, because the Irishman is set to take an indefinite break from the acting game.

Speaking to Timeout this week, Fassbender said: "I had a ferocious appetite and energy for it, and I went at it like a maniac. But I'm going to take some downtime now. The last five years, I was verging on being a workaholic. I've just been going from film to film."

The man behind emotionally-charged roles in the likes of Shame, Steve Jobs and Fish Tank also hasn't ruled out quitting acting altogether in the future, saying: "I'm not ruling it out. I'm not saying it's going to happen, but a part of me thinks you have a time as an actor when you're at your best. There's a journey to it, and then it's downhill."

Fassbender is currently promoting his new film Assassin's Creed, in which he plays a man made to relive the memories of a 15th-century Spanish ancestor, who also happens to be an assassin.

It's not doing that well with critics, but let's be reasonable here, Mike? Please...
