Exclusive 1:1 Interview with American Hustle star Christian Bale!

Let's face it, you walk into a room with Christian Bale, you can't be quite sure what you're going to get. Thankfully, in this instance, what I got was a very humorous and affable Bale, eager to chat about his challenging new character Irving Rosenfeld, the center of David O. Russell's AMERICAN HUSTLE. In the film, Irving is a hefty con artist wrangled by the FBI into entrapping some corrupt politicians; it's a rich character filled with the many quirks and tics we've come to expect from the talented actor. And of course, it wouldn't be a Christian Bale performance if it didn't come with an intense physical transformation; in this case, Irving's large gut and dreadful comb-over.

In the interview below, you'll hear Bale talk about how committed he was to nailing the character, the epic comb-over he rocks in the film, and his second collaboration with David O. Russell.

God, I can't wait to see this movie. Bale is just amazing. But everybody here already knows that. On a side note, I'd like to say that I have really been enjoying the way Eric Walkuski has conducted these interviews. Great job, man!

Brilliant actor. Absolutely owned in Out of the Furnace.

I hope to see him nominated this year for one of these two films.

The jealousy seethes whenever I see the interviews you guys get to conduct. I couldn't help but notice that the background kinda looks like the Overlook Hotel carpet pattern from The Shining.

Cocaine's a helluva drug...

Whoo, Bale was fired up for this junket. Shades of his THE FIGHTER character coming through. Big time.
