Michael Fassbender joins all-star cast for 'The Counselor', in cinemas this week. In Ridley Scott's drug trafficking tale, he plays a lawyer, a man who would appear to have it all, with money, parties and a lady played by Penelope Cruz to cuddle up to. So how does it go so wrong? One word: Greed.

In our EXCLUSIVE VIDEO BELOW, the 'Shame star' talks about Ridley Scott's humour, Brad Pitt's influence and his very favourite actor.

'The Counselor' is in UK cinemas from this Friday 15 November.
