Steven Colbert did a parody of the Christian Bale rant on his Comedy Central show “The Colbert Report” last night. Colbert went off on Steve Martin, telling him he was distracting him from his talking. It was a loose interpretation of Bale’s tirade, with Colbert repeating the famous line “We are done professionally.”
James Lipton from The Actor’s Studio played both Bale and the subject of his ire in a brilliant word for word reenactment on Conan last night. You can tell what a great actor Lipton is just from this brief performance.
There’s buzz that Bale’s leaked outburst may cost him an Oscar next year. He’s slated to star in Public Enemies with Johnny Depp, which comes out this summer. It’s not likely people are going to forget Bale’s rant, whatever the circumstances that prompted it.
