Christian Bale Is Unrecognizable as Dick Cheney in Vice Trailer

Christian Bale Is Unrecognizable as Dick Cheney in Vice Trailer”

George W. Bush is played by Sam Rockwell - but we bet you couldn't guess that from the pictures (below). Those mannerisms are so eerily accurate, one immediately suspects Bale is going to be in the thick of the awards conversation thanks to his latest turn.

The blink-and-you-missed-it clip briefly shows Cheney with his wife, Lynn, portrayed by his American Hustle co-star Amy Adams, and offers a few glimpses into his career and life, including the infamous 2006 quail hunting accident, in which the hawkish VP inadvertently shot a friend in the face.

The just-released poster for Vice.

Vice explores the epic story about how a bureaucratic Washington insider quietly became the most powerful man in the world as Vice-President to George W. Bush, reshaping the country and the globe in ways that we still feel today.

Bale is known for physically transforming himself for his roles, losing more than 60 pounds and foregoing sleep to achieve a skeletal look for 2004's The Machinist before then bulking up to play Batman in Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy.

'What Christian Bale really does is he psychologically breaks someone apart and puts them back together again, ' McKay told Deadline. The film finds Bale reuniting with McKay following 2015's Oscar-nominated The Big Short.

And the star? Christian Bale as Dick Cheney.

"I've never seen someone work so hard at it, and it is hard on him, but really fantastic to watch", McKay said of Bale's transformation. We've all been waiting to see something from this, and the movie will be out in theaters nationwide on Christmas Day - flawless for the holidays, right?
