Just in time for St. Patrick's Day, the luck of the Irish has apparently shined on Michael Fassbender.

The in-demand actor was snapped on Thursday holding hands and generally looking cozy with "Shame" co-star Nicole Beharie during a stroll around New York (we won't give away the plot twist in the NC-17 flick, but suffice it to say that the pair share a very close encounter).

No word on whether they're officially an item, but Fassbender, 34, and Beharie were also apparently spied in London earlier this month.

This wouldn't be the first time Fassy has fallen for someone he worked with. Last year, he reportedly dated his "X-Men: First Class" co-star Zoe Kravitz.
