FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
January 8, 2012
Our host, Teangelo, will be visited by Christian Bale’s real life Alfred, Harrison Chung, who will discuss the critically acclaimed actor, Christian Bale; providing an in-depth look into the anger filled actor and explaining why Christian is such a private person.
Christian Bale, who became an Academy Award-winning actor for his role in The Fighter, is most known for his role as one of Hollywood’s most revered and bankable characters, Batman; has the ability to physically transform himself for roles in films such as American Psycho and The Machinist. The Dark Knight star infamously accused of assaulting his mother and sister and six months later when a recording of Bale’s rant on the set of Terminator Salvation was leaked, the star’s anger began to define him.
In Christian Bale: The Inside Story of the Darkest Batman, Bale’s former publicist and assistant Harrison Cheung—his real-life Alfred—shares an inside look into the little-known personal life of the intensely private and reclusive actor. In the first biography of the Batman star, Cheung, who lived and worked with Christian and his father for 10 years, shares firsthand accounts of the Bales’ familial dysfunction, Christian’s morbid fascinations and dark humor, and his extreme dedication to his craft.
Aware that Bale hated his traditional publicity duties, Cheung launched an extensive Internet marketing campaign for the actor, built the first official website for the actor and cultivated the Baleheads, an online fan community that was used to garner editorial coverage and ultimately help Bale secure the role of the Caped Crusader. This book uncovers Bale’s transformation from shy, English child actor to Internet sensation to Hollywood bad boy.
