Christian Bale is known for putting his body through drastic changes to play certain roles in the films that he stars in. Remember when he went insanely skinny for The Machinist? To achieve that he ate one apple a day and one can of tuna. Then he later massively bulked up for Batman Begins!
The actor is now starting to gain weight for his next film, in which he will play Dick Cheney. Variety has an interview with the actor and you can already see the physical change that he's going through. He's definitely gaining weight and he says his secret to gaining that weight is eating lots of pies. If you're a lover of pies, that's not a bad diet! It's always interesting to see Bale transform himself.
The Dick Cheney biopic currently has no title. It's being directed by Adam McKay and will also star Steve Carell as Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, and Amy Adams is set to play Lynne Cheney. Sam Rockwell is also in talks to play George W. Bush.
This is certainly going to be an interesting movie. I'm sure McKay will end up giving us something wonderfully entertaining.
