Christian Bale is Dicky Eklund

Christian Bale continues to go above and beyond the call of duty for his portrayal of Dicky Eklund in The Fighter on Tuesday (July 28) in Boston, Mass.

The 35-year-old method actor shot scenes with costar Mark Wahlberg.

Bale has said about film, “It’s a true story of two incredibly gifted boxers who were half brothers. The one, Dicky Ecklund, who fought Sugar Ray Leonard at a very young age, when he was twenty one, was an incredible natural talent. He lived a very hard life. Then he came to train his brother, Irish Mickey Ward, to the world title.”

this is beyond scary! he takes method acting to another level wow. kudos to him i hope his performance is superb in this movie.

# 2

OMG….Christian. Nooooo. Okay, I mean…I know it’s for a role but WHOA. How are you going to bounce back from THAT? lol

# 3

OMFG i cant get over how skinny he got. Even though it for a role but oh wow that’s just too extreme

# 4

I wonder if it all will be worth it with Marky MArky staring in this. I like marky mark but his last two performances were nothing to write home about. “The Happening” and that action movie showed how horrible is acting can be. hope he doesn’t disappoint Bale.

# 5

this looks like madness. not worth the cost to the body.

# 6

I dont believe look terrible :(

# 7

oh god. that’s horrible.
but i mean props to h im for taking his acting so seriously..

# 8

Wow!! I hope he can bounce back quickly. He is a completely different person!

# 9

That’s so unhealthy! He’s going to give himself HEART FAILURE if he keeps doing this to himself.

omg !!!!! what happend 2 u ???? =o0o

it’s crazy as he looks alike Dicky Ecklund on the first picture.
He’s a totally different person!

eww ,what happened to him ?

Method actor or not.. He looks horrible.. I don’t want to go to a movie and see this.. plus mark W. is not my cup of tea..

He is messing up his body big time.. YUCK.. i will pass on this one

I know it’s just for a movie role, but HOLY CRAP!

He kind of looks like an already scary looking Jeff Conaway circa Celebrity Rehab.

WTFFF he looks like a hobo. i wouldn’t think twice about throwing change at him if i ever saw him on the street

Holy crap! I hope he’s taking care of his body…

Oh my god, he looks so scary! Hope he knows what he’s doing, but then again he bounced back from The machinist so…

He never looked better. Let’s hope he’s not too weak from starving himself to yell and curse at anyone who steps in his way. I’d hate to think the old Christian has changed.

i just hope he would finally get an oscar nod for this movie because it’s the main reason why he accepted this role

Does not even look like him?
He really gets in to character, but how healthy is it??

OMG! he looks so old! poor guy

He cant act and he’s a jerk.


Lol shut up stupid ***** he obviously can act, what do you think your little Rob Pattinson can act? Fail. Anyway everyone stop freaking out, he’s doing it for his role, he’s a method actor, gets hardcore into character, he can’t be the same buff, gorgeous guy that would be boring. This is why I love him.
