Which Pairing For The Fighter Is the Best?

Over two years ago, there was news that Mark Wahlberg and Matt Damon would star together in The Fighter, a drama about "Boston fighter 'Irish' Mickey Ward [Wahlberg] and how he was helped to the world lightweight championship by half-brother Dicky Eklund" (Damon).

Then, about seven months later, Matt Damon dropped out of the project and Brad Pitt was in talks to take his place in the role of Dicky.

Now Pitt's out of the picture and Christian Bale is joining the cast as Dicky (and the movie will be directed by David O. Russell).

Bale and Wahlberg make a nice-looking duo — but then again, so did Pitt and Wahlberg, and Damon and Wahlberg. Which pairing do you think is the best of these three?

Idealy Mark & Brad, but as both Mark and Matt are both from Boston I voted for them :)

Bale is my favorite of the three, but for this particular project I think Damon's the best suited.

I like Wahlberg and Bale just because it could be a very good movie but based on what the story is supposed to be- two Boston guys, I agree with emalove. Get two real Boston natives, Wahlberg and Damon...just for kicks. Eh, I think it'll be fine whatever way you spin it.

I personally like the Wahlberg-Damon pairing the best--they're both true Boston boys, and if they're playing Bostonians in the movie, I could totally see it working. As a Massachusetts native, it's so annoying trying to watch actors get the Boston accent right. No one ever really does, unless they're from here!

Not to kill the mood, but I don't find any of them attractive what so ever.

Wahlberg vs Bale. Boston rage vs Welsh rage.

Whats funny is I just looked at the photos and picked the one I liked best, which happens to be Bale! I should be a casting director!

Double yum! I wouldn't have been half as excited about Pitt and Damon. Pitt never did anything for me and I am so over Matt Damon. Christian Bale, on the other hand, is delightful!
