Michael Fassbender has joined Ridley Scott's non-Alien Alien prequel, Prometheus. He'll star opposite Noomi Rapace, who is playing a non-Ripley Ripley. Fassbender will play an android, but don't you go thinking it's Bishop or an HTC Incredible, because you'd look ridiculously silly. He was offered the role last year when the movie was still an official Alien prequel, but it took him awhile to decide if his cheek bones could be more or as equally convincing as Lance Henriksen's. You made the right choice, sir.

Prometheus will hit theaters March 9, 2012. Don't start spazzing out until at least late January. (THR)
