In a recent interview, Christian Bale refers to Heath Ledger - his costar in The Dark Knight - as a "kindred spirit," adding:
"He was a unique character, a very infectious character. He was a good man, and I was glad to have spent time with him."
From Bruce Wayne to John Connor, Christian Bale doesn't shy away from iconic roles.
Bale also spoke at length about his role as John Connor in the upcoming, rebooting of the Terminator franchise. The actor said:
"I've always had two varying degrees of success, and I'm not talking about anything to do with box office. I'm talking about my own parameters. You know, an interest in attempting in a wide variety of stories. I never desired to be a big studio movie actor, action actor.
I've never desired to be a serious independent movie actor. I enjoy all of those. It depends on what mood I'm in. And therefore, I will try to bend those stories into becoming something that I can enjoy myself, varying degrees of success with that. We have an opportunity with it for a continuation, but also a reinvention, and I have to say, much the same way in my mind as we have with Batman.
And beyond that I won't say anymore because we're just starting."
