Every actor has that one part that makes him famous and signals to the world that he is prepared to rule the planet. They alone are the ones who invented the job. Other actors would not have been able to give it justice. For Christian Bale, playing Patrick Batman meant just that. He gained enormous renown from the role, which also helped him make a name for himself in the business. But just like the part, Bale knew it wouldn’t be easy to land. However, he made sure that he would obtain it at any cost.

The path Christian Bale will take

Everyone would agree that Patrick Bateman and Christian Bale are a perfect match. The actor was accurate in every detail. The way it was done was perfect. Exactly what needed to be seen. Despite earning a fair amount of money at the box office, American Psycho emerged victorious in terms of reviews. Critics praised the film and Bale’s portrayal of Patrick Bateman.

However, it wasn’t simple to get him the part. It arrived after a protracted cycle. Leonardo DiCaprio once looked to be vying for the position. Even without him, the star of The Dark Knight had stiff competition from Ewan McGregor. Bale knew that this battle would not be simple. But he was dead keen on landing the job.

The deterrent to Leonardo DiCaprio being cast in American Psycho

Christian Bale was insisted upon by the film’s director Mary Harron. What she had witnessed at the audition had persuaded her. However, the studio preferred to star Leonardo DiCaprio. It was due to the actor’s stardom following Titanic’s commercial success. However, Harron was persuaded not to consent to their wishes.

She even explained why she decided against using the Inception star. She spoke with Den of Geek about her experience, saying, “I didn’t agree with it. partly due to the fact that he was such a great start, but also because a lot of his fans were young girls. I was temporarily let go from the movie because I just didn’t believe he was the proper fit.

Ewan McGregor was warned by Christian Bale about the job

However, he wasn’t the only obstacle standing in the way of Christian Bale’s ideal job. In addition, he had to compete against Ewan McGregor, his Velvet Goldmine co-star. Bale was determined to land the part, and he did so in classic Patrick Bateman fashion. McGregor had a direct order from him to avoid it.

He said in a message that was clear:

“Avoid touching. Move away. Or, if you’re not going to back down, be aware of the challenges you face.

And it worked as intended. Despite the questionable ethics of the methods he used, he was successful in landing the job.
