FILMWAD was a great post about my favorite actor, Christian Bale. Here are a few extracts from the article:
Christian Bale is eighteen times cooler than you, or anyone you will ever meet. This is a fact.
Bale was born in Wales, and he most assuredly has a British accent. Yet for what seems to be the majority of his films (Equilibrium, American Psycho, Shaft, Harsh Times, etc), Bale has a damn-near-perfect American accent.
Bale is one of the few actors in the world who can effortlessly glide from shallow, pop entertainment, to quasi-arthouse fare, to everything in between – often adding a lot more class and dignity to roles and films than they really have any right to.
