Blues_X: WhoIsWillo: /Would be nice of the rest of the cast would join him too.

*Morgan Freeman walks in, points, and says*

"Titty sprinkles!"

*then he walks out*


That would cheer me up if I were in the hospital.


Ok I totally read that in his voice....

I hope this sort of thing becomes a trend: last week Ron Perlman, this week Christian Bale.
 
2012-07-24 08:29:15 PM
Did he punch his mother?
 
2012-07-24 08:29:45 PM
I hope he sneaked up on some injured moviegoer napping in her hospital bed, bent down close, and whispered in his gravelly Batman voice, "YOU WANTED ME, HERE I AM."

After he first slammed her head down into the food tray...

Uchiha_Cycliste: WhoIsWillo: Ohhhhh, goooood for you.

Seriously, good on you, Mr. Bale. That's a classy move, and to do it lo-key is probably for the best.

/Would be nice of the rest of the cast would join him too.

well, a dozen of em got to meet heath ledger.


Oh, wow. Just wow. I ain't got the words (other than 'wow'). Well done.

Some days, it's hard for me to not read everything in his voice. Which is fine for most things, but when I'm wanking to something on literotica, it gets a little awkward.

Wouldn't work. Hardy is too roided up and intimidating, Caine would want to do a shot with everyone, Morgan Freeman would narrate every second of his trip out loud, Gary Oldman would behave like Gary Oldman, and if Hathaway went, some of the wounded fanboys may spooge themselves into lethal dehydration.

Good on yah, Mr. Bale.
 
2012-07-24 08:43:37 PM

GungFu: Classy.

Anyone else wonder if he was talking to them in his normal Brit voice or Bruce Wayne American accent, or the Throaty Batman Grunty voice?


He tends to use whatever accent the character of his current project uses. If he is in between movies, it's his normal accent. His current movie is set in Texas so I have no idea what accent he would be gunning for. He could probably pull off a Texas accent because that's him.

giantpiraterobot: pro: the girl who works at the hospital and is 'one of the biggest batman fans ever' has left her photos open, including pictures in a batgirl costume.
con: I like the idea less now.

Inaditch: That's not Christian Bale. That's his secret twin brother.


Are you saying there are doubles?
 
2012-07-24 08:48:01 PM
um, wasn't there a plea or a push on Facebook for this?
 
2012-07-24 08:49:08 PM

Third_Uncle_Eno: um, wasn't there a plea or a push on Facebook for this?


I'm sure your almighty facebook is the sole reason for the visit.
 
2012-07-24 08:53:28 PM
Good on ya, Mr. Bale.
 
2012-07-24 08:53:40 PM
Nicely done sir.
 
2012-07-24 08:54:31 PM

Third_Uncle_Eno: um, wasn't there a plea or a push on Facebook for this?


there was but they wanted him to go in the Batman outfit and ummm yeah not so sure that would have been the best idea. I mean talk about your PTSD trigger.

stoli n coke: Gary Oldman would behave like Gary Oldman


How does Gary Oldman act? The only thing I can think of is as soon as he goes back to being Gary Oldman again after a movie, he goes back to his thick as pea soup London accent.

I don't know who has a thicker London accent, him or Michael Caine. Mind you, both are awesome.

If he came dressed as Zorg, I'd die from the awesome.

/good on Bale, though
 
2012-07-24 09:09:48 PM
Then he had to leave because he had to return a videotape.
 
2012-07-24 09:10:42 PM
Cool move but would be cooler if, when everyone recovers, have a reunion at a private theater and screen the film with some of the cast, maybe Christopher Nolan. Just kind of have some memorial before and ease everyone's mind that they should enjoy the film like they wanted to and not have to have some form of terrible memory attached to the film. I know it'd be difficult to get over but it'd probably be a good form of therapy. Like a "Fark you, we can get over this and not be fearful."

GUATAPOPO: "I'm not wearing colostomy bags"


I just wanted to let you know that this comment reduced me to tears. +1
 
2012-07-24 09:15:14 PM
He's going to start pulling the IVs of people who are unconscious in recovery.

/talk is cheap, lets see how much of his fortune for being a phony hero he shares with the victims' families

Jesus, man. He didn't shoot anyone. He didn't have any relation to the shooter. And he doesn't anyone anything. This is a nice gesture on his part. Why should there be a demand for anything more from him?

/thought the demand for him to dress up as the Batman to visit was a little too much
//this is nice

Hopefully no one walked behind him on camera.
 
2012-07-24 09:37:17 PM
GET OUT OF THE farkING BED, YOU PRICK

fark SAKE, YOU'RE AMATEUR SHOOTING VICTIMS

/at least that's how I imagine it went down when he entered each room

This is bad news... for Obama.

ununcle: That's cool. Bale seem's like a pretty cool guy. He should visit Holmes now. In character. With a Bat Glock.


No guns

No killing.

I'd like to see Hardy stop by....as his character from Bronson.

But seriously, this was very cool of Mr. Bale.
 
2012-07-24 09:50:42 PM
That was cool of him. He didn't have to do it. But he chose to on his own. Say what you will about his past. But he's a class act when it counts.
 
2012-07-24 09:51:17 PM
Bale gets da props
 
2012-07-24 09:51:36 PM
Kudos to Mr. Bale. I was hoping he'd do this. Really nice gesture.

God lord you're right. A bat boomerang pulling out his entrails which Bale could then hang him from a fire escape would be so much Gothomier. I clearly didn't think that one through. This is why I would never make a good super hero. Plus even before I'd shoot the farker, I'd probably monologue.

kingoomieiii: "Why didn't you link to the source article, Subby?" -Me, a second before I realized that the source article is like the same two sentences, and still doesn't have a picture of him actually being there.


The Fark link goes to a Denver Post article with much more than two sentences, and a photo of Mr. Bale visiting one of the victims.
 
2012-07-24 10:09:44 PM
At work just now, swear to God

Me: Oh, that's cool, Christian Bale visited the shooting victims". Co-worker: "He hasn't been a movie in a long time, like True Romance." Me: "Uh...dude, that's Christian Slater. Why in the hell would Christian Slater visit the hospital? Look kids, the guy from Heathers is here to brighten your day!"
 
2012-07-24 10:11:45 PM
All I can say is his girlfriend/wife, whatever, had BETTER cook him a steak and give him a BJ tonight for being awesome!

I don't know whether to favorite you, or punch you for making my sides hurt so bad.

/favorited!
//Seriously...laughing so hard I'm crying as I type this.
 
2012-07-24 10:18:05 PM
Quite a lot of time spent around trashing celebs for being vapid and self-serving. So it's nice to balance things out with something like this. Good job, Christian Bale. Classy move.

2012-07-24 10:27:57 PM
Did he ask the victims if they like Genesis?
 
2012-07-24 10:45:36 PM
Squeeeeee!

I'd love to meet Mr. Bale in person. Humina, humina.

(Not like this, though.)

HERO tag would have been appropriate here, RDJ at kids Ironman costume contest? Not so much.
