In a sentence we never thought we'd type: here's a look at Christian Bale as Dick Cheney. The 44-year-old known method actor transformed into the 77-year-old former vice president for the upcoming dramedy Vice, also starring Sam Rockwell as George W. Bush, Amy Adams as Lynne Cheney, and Steve Carell as Donald Rumsfeld. By the look of the trailer, the movie will explore Cheney's infamous power maneuvers, personal life, and at times underhanded relationship with the then-president. Vice is slated for a Christmas Day release, and is already nominated for several Golden Globe awards. Watch the wild trailer above.
