As everyone gathers around the table this weekend to eat turkey until their stomachs can take no more, they will be giving thanks, and two actors who have a lot to be thankful for in 2012 are Bradley Cooper and Michael Fassbender. The former has "Silver Linings Playbook" opening this weekend and has had an eventful year with "The Place Beyond The Pines" premiering at TIFF, while he's been busy on film sets for Susanne Bier's "Serena" and "The Hangover Part III." As for Fassy, riding high on the acclaim for "Shame," he featured in this summer's "Prometheus," re-teamed with Ridley Scott for "The Counselor," re-teamed with Steve McQueen for "Twelve Years A Slave," worked with Terrence Malick on his Austin music movie and has much more coming as well. So let's take a look back in time to when they were both up-and-coming.

As everyone gathers around the table this weekend to eat turkey until their stomachs can take no more, they will be giving thanks, and two actors who have a lot to be thankful for in 2012 are Bradley Cooper and Michael Fassbender. The former has "Silver Linings Playbook" opening this weekend and has had an eventful year with "The Place Beyond The Pines" premiering at TIFF, while he's been busy on film sets for Susanne Bier's "Serena" and "The Hangover Part III." As for Fassy, riding high on the acclaim for "Shame," he featured in this summer's "Prometheus," re-teamed with Ridley Scott for "The Counselor," re-teamed with Steve McQueen for "Twelve Years A Slave," worked with Terrence Malick on his Austin music movie and has much more coming as well. So let's take a look back in time to when they were both up-and-coming.

First off, and some of you may have seen this already, but a very young Bradley Cooper asked Sean Penn a question in the actor's 1999 episode of "Inside The Actor's Studio." First off -- wow, that hair -- but it's kinda cool to see Cooper young and eager to learn from someone like Penn, who was already at the height of his prowess. Meanwhile, here's a look at Fassy in a 2003 ad for Guiness that only aired in Ireland. And here's a bonus ad as well: a 1998 spot for SAS Travel with a super young Fassy and his butt. You're welcome, ladies. Check them all out below. [Reddit]
