Sam Rockwell will play George W Bush alongside Christian Bale's Cheney and Amy Adams as Cheney's wife in Adam McKay's next film-- superb casting with Rockwell. Maybe this will finally net him his ridiculously overdue Oscar

I read that as meaning Adam McKay’s ridiculously overdue Oscar and almost choked to death

Can't wait to see Bale shoot someone in the face in the film!

Looks like Bale is up to his old tricks again.

It's a shame his weight fluctuations and character ticks have overshadowed his acting

He looks like Syd Barrett in the mid-70's

The real victim here will be his body. The body can certainly gain and lose weight at intervals but the doing it constantly and rapidly has a major effect on it. Both Robert De Niro and Tom Hanks have developed Diabetes (Type 2 obviously) because of this. I wouldn't be shocked if ten, fifteen years down the line he's handed a diagnosis.

mfunk is out to slowly drive domino insane with thread titles.

I'm eager to see how this turns out. Bush has certainly been lampooned before but I'll be interested in seeing what McKay and Co. can do.

Insane.

Weren't "health concerns over weight gain" the reason Bale dropped out of Michael Mann's Enzo Ferrari film? But now he's gaining weight for this film?

Bale indeed dropped this one, but it might have been just too soon after his weight gain for The Big Short (so not just only a question of changing his weight, but how fast he would have needed to achieve it).
