When ‘Vice’ was first announced and Christian Bale billed to play the role of charismatic 46th vice president of the United States, no one really cared. This quickly changed when a picture from set found its way to the internet. Tongues got wagging and people couldn’t stop talking about how remarkable the changes to his physique were, calling it his best yet.
Yesterday, the first trailer found its way to the internet and people can’t stop talking about it. Nothing could’ve prepared us for Bale’s shocking transformation and how striking his resemblance to the real Dick Cheney was.
But I think it’s the make-up artist(s) attached to the project that should get the bulk of the celebration; every one of the popular actors playing major characters in the movie is almost totally unrecognizable – Amy Adams, Sam Rockwell, Stevel Carrel, you name it. I had a hard time matching the face of the person playing President George W. Bush to the ever energetic Sam Rockwell, talk more or the ever-lovely Amy Adams.
Vice is looking to be a critical wonder, which should transform into a commercial hit, too, if all goes as planned. The Oscar 2019 contest just got tougher.
Tell me, which of these transformations is most shocking to you, I want to know?
