Golden Globes 2019: Christian Bale Thanks ‘Satan’ For Helping Him Play Dick Cheney [VIDEO]
Bale thanked many people including writer-director Adam McKay, who previously made The Big Short, for casting him in the part of the notorious Cheney in the new biopic.
“He said, ‘I’ve got to find someone who can be absolutely charisma-free and rivaled by everybody … thank you for all the competition. I will be cornering the market on charisma-free a—holes,” said the 44-year-old British actor, who previously won a Golden Globe in 2011 for his supporting role in the film The Fighter.
Bale then called out a specific politician: the Republican Senate Majority Leader.
“What do you think, Mitch McConnell next? That could be good couldn’t it?” Bale said of the veteran Kentucky lawmaker as McKay whooped from his table.
“I’d like to thank Satan, for giving me inspiration on how to play this role,” said Bale.
