He should have just taken a couple bong hits and let it ride.
Well put.

I enjoyed when he screamed "You're a nice guy! You're a nice guy!"

Suddenly, his performance in American Psycho doesn't seem like so far a reach

Re: The Dark Side of the Dark Knight

Nice post Joe Redskin. He lives by a diffrent set of rules then us. I would be mad if someone screwed up my work as well but to carry on like that in my office would get me a quick trip to HR and then most likely the street.

If you really hate him don't go see the next Batman or any of his movies. That is the best and only way we can show him we don't like his behavior.

Re: The Dark Side of the Dark Knight

Bale definitely took it to a level it need not have gone to. Even McG was afraid to say anything to him. Reminds me of a recent story where a big time Broadway actress stopped acting in the middle of a play and demanded that an audience member taking photos with flash be escorted out.

Re: The Dark Side of the Dark Knight

I wonder if Christian Bale is on steroids. The only people I have ever seen act like that were.

Yeah he over reacted, but I am not going to stop watching the Batman series because of it. I might not watch the Terminator movie, but I will not boycott him altogether. I got 5 bucks that says he will publically apologize anyway.

Re: The Dark Side of the Dark Knight

What gets me more than Bale flipping out, is what kind of incredible P-words are the executives from the movie company that's paying Bale's salary??? When he feels free to act like this, it shows he has no respect for the folks stroking the checks.

It's not like they are making Batman 3 and he holds way more leverage. The suits should've come to the set and went off on him the way he went of the guy who walked on-set. They should've told him to settle the hell down or he'd be carrying his annoying UK-accent ass back across the f-ing pond, minus the multi-million dollar check for the f-ing movie.

They have to have some sort of language in his contract about him causing production delays or walking out of the movie.

A few more outburst like that and he will be blacklisted. There are consequence to losing people money or threatening to.

Yes. That is likely. I think more than one star has had a promising career shot down b/c word got out they were "difficult".

I agree. I mean I dont think its that big of a deal that you say something to the guy, even be kind of an asshole about it...but this is just ridiculous.

Re: The Dark Side of the Dark Knight

It sucks that Hollywood plays by a different set of HR rules... people aren't treated like humans, unless you've got some sort of pull. If you're a normal crew member, you're treated as easily replaceable (which is actually true).

If anyone has a chance to peep it, rent "Swimming with Sharks." Now that's some real producer abuse.

There's the million dollar (actually more literally) phrase. The DP is replaceable Cristian Bale is not. Both from a talent/star stand-point and practically. They can't stop shooting in the middle and start over with a new actor even if they wanted. What needs to happen is that Hollywood has to stop hiring actors who do this.

Sort of like Wall Street needs to stop hiring certain jackasses who want to steal everyone blind... not gonna happen in both cases.

Re: The Dark Side of the Dark Knight

Not the first time the guy in the background had done this. I like the fact that someone gets screamed at instead of people behaving like the world should protect ****-ups.

If Mr. Background can't stay off set then don't work in movies.

Nice one, Batman, like it!
