It's Christian Bale's turn to act like an asshole over the Exodus casting



Christian Bale on the casting for Exodus: "Ridley's point, which I think is a good one, is what does an Egyptian look like? Especially at that time when this was the empire, so it would be a crossroads of Europe and the Middle East and Africa, and he cast accordingly. I don't know the fact that I was born in Wales and suffer with this skin that can't deal with the sun should dictate that Ridley should say, 'In that case, he's not the right man to play the role.' I did the best that I can. I'm certainly not going to pass it up. It's a hell of a role and we all know how rarely such meaty roles come along for white male actors these days blah blah this strikethrough isn't a real quote."
