Bale Bailed on W.

| Filed under: Film FlickersChristian Bale

With the release of Oliver Stone's George W. Bush biopic, W., on the horizon, the director recently admitted that Josh Brolin, who plays the 43rd President, was not his first choice.

In fact, the production first threw a bunch of money at Christian Bale, with whom Stone worked on some "rigorous prosthetic tests" for the role.

In the end, however, Bale bailed, saying he just didn't feel like he could do it.

But Stone doesn't mind his second choice. "I met Josh and liked him. He was more rural Americana. But man, he was scared [bleep]less."

Does Christian Bale know something we don't?

Like just how bad the movie is going to be?

    You know what Perez, when you take the time to make a movie and judge people, Oh wait, I forgot thats what you do, judge people for a living. I feel sorry for you really. I think you should post more facts rather than your gay ass opinion and give us something real to go off of. Have you ever taken the actual time to know what goes into a movie? I think it will be very interesting.

    They found the one way to make Brolin unattractive.



  11. 11

    Why are they making a movie about president dickhead? Movies should be made about inspiration people, not retarded presidents. When will Dick Cheney the movie be coming out??



  12. 12

    I think the movie will be good. Josh looks pretty convincing as W in the previews.

    Re: harrybalsac
    At least you admit it. I haven't heard a single person anywhere online or anything that admitted they voted for George W. Bush. They just choose not to mention it.

    Re: Perez is a Balding Hasbeen – i voted for him once. i felt bad for the country after 9/11 and had a brain fart.

    I saw a preview of the film and it looked like it could be pretty interesting. Josh Brolin looked a lot like W and is probably a better casting choice than Bale who is a little too young, I think. Josh did such a good job in No Country for Old Men, too.



  25. 25

    I think Bush is the worst Pres ever (I do NOT hate McC though)…but I'd be interested in seeing it — just for the flaws GWB has.

    I CAN'T STAND GEORGE W BUSH! A NASTY MOVIE ABOUT HOW MUCH OF A CREEP HE IS WOULD BE FUNNY!
    .
    BUT THIS MOVIE LOOKS STUPID AND LIKE A STINKER!!!
    .
    OLIVER STONE HAS KINDA LOST IT OVER THE LAST FEW YEARS!
    .
    LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE CHRISTIAN BALE AND WOULD BUY A TICKET TO ANYTHING HE IS IN! MAYBE AFTER SPENDING A LITTLE TIME WITH STONE, BALE REALIZED THIS GUY MAKES COMICALLY CRAP MOVIES!



  27. 27

    I don't know what this has to do with anything, but I think Josh Brolin and Christian Bale look so much alike.



  28. 28

    I am so sick of people shit talking Josh Brolin.
