Bait and Switch.

M: So, you know what's disappointing? When you think a guy is kind of cute in an awful TV show:

And then you find out he was in Newsies:


A: Okay, first of all, how OLD is he? 13? Second of all, Christian Bale was a Newsie.

M: Well, that's true I guess.

A: Now, I think Christian Bale is creepy, but he's also Batman, so former-Newsie is not necessarily a complete dealbreaker. Your little man is cute, though.

M: He can sing and it's such a terrible show that I guess I appreciate the distraction. Also, shush about Bale.

A: I maintain my stance. Straight up creepy. What show are you talking about?

M: Smash. It awful but as a former theatre person I seem to be contractually obligated to watch it.  Also:

A: Oh yeah, he has a wooden box in his basement with my name on it.

M: Oh, hush.

A: I mean, seriously:


A: You can practically see the crazy-swirls in his eyes.

M: He has smiley eyes!

A: I don't know. I don't trust him.

M: I think Christian Bale is to me what Daniel Craig is to you. This is some SAT stuff right here.

A: D. All of the above.


  1. The fact that he was Patrick Bateman probably doesn't help. But don't knock Newsies. That was my favorite "teacher is hungover so we're gonna watch a movie" movie :)

  2. Whoa, wait a second. One of you doesn't like Christian Bale and one of you doesn't like Daniel Craig? WHO ARE YOU LADIES? I thought we were friends. It's like I don't even know you any more.

  3. Bale for the win. All the way.
