So, I needed an actor who would be tireless in diving into the mystery and no one has a more rigorous process in preparing a character than Christian Bale. So right away from the first second of the project I knew it had to be Christian Bale that plays Dick Cheney." Channel24 talks to Oscar-nominated director Adam McKay about his new film, Vice.
