Wirklich wahr.

...Michael is fluent in English?

True story.

And good food. But who does not.

...Michael drew from his own news production experience for his role in Roman Polanski's film THE GHOST WRITER?

To "kinda work for CNN" made him a happy guy.

And please don't fix it in post. Nuke it, though.

...planet earth -  contrary to popular belief -  is not shaped like a four-leaved clover?

Seriously. No, seriously.

42!

...Michael tries almost every food at least once?

He sure does. Yes. Taste now, complain later.
