ON THE DARK SIDE?
Hmm... Maybe there's more to The Dark Knight star Christian Bale than meets the eye--but not in a good way. Hot on the heels of my assertion that he has zero star quality and that his film was way too violent, reports are coming out of London that Bale has been arrested on allegations of assault by, of all people, his mother and sister. Yikes! Just yesterday, after seeing the movie, I saw an item on Inside Edition or one of those tabloid TV shows in which he was shown at a gas station playing perfect dad to his three-year-old daughter. In the film, the actions of his flawed Batman were nearly as brutal as those of Heath Ledger's the Joker. The Dark Knight, indeed. Hopefully, the character didn't stick.
