Christian Bale is a character actor. In “The Machinist” he played a guy that didn’tsleep and got all emaciated. So, that’swhat he did, and he looked horrifying. In “Batman Begins” he played an awesome, bat-themed superhero, so he gotcompletely built and beat the hell out of criminals* in the streets of New York.
Now he’s signed on for three Terminator movies. Holy melting metal Batman (Bale)! He’s slated to play John Conner which is going to totally and completelyrock. That is, unless, you are Skynet.
I’d say that there’s a 90 percent chance that to prepare forthis role he will build a robot army and fight them. Does John Conner ever become partiallybionic? I bet he does. Above is an artist’s (my) rendering of whathe will change into in order to accurately portray the war hero of ourchildhood, dystopic dreams.
