CHRISTIAN BALE's (Bruce Wayne / Batman) decade-plus career spans a unique variety and range. Born in Wales, Bale grew up in England, Portugal and the USA. He made his film debut in Steven Spielberg's World War II epic Empire of the Sun, drawing both critical attention and a special National Board of Review award for Best Performance by a Juvenile Actor. Bale continued to garner praise for his memorable portrayals of the passionately frustrated Ned Rosier in Jane Campion's The Portrait of a Lady, a cynical journalist in the glam rock epic Velvet Goldmine, a mentally slow runaway in All the Little Animals opposite John Hurt, and a Victorian teenager in Christopher Hampton's The Secret Agent. In 1999, critics were unanimous in their acclaim for his gruesomely comic turn as a yuppie serial killer in the controversial American Psycho.
Most recently, Bale starred opposite Samuel L. Jackson in Shaft and Nicolas Cage in Captain Corelli's Mandolin, in the apocalyptic fantasy adventure Reign of Fire, and alongside Frances McDormand in Laurel Canyon.
Following his starring role in Batman Begins, Bale will portray English tobacco planter John Rolfe in the Terrence Malick scripted and directed film The New World, and star in the independent feature Harsh Times, a drama set in South Central Los Angeles.
