Christian Bale, the king of on-screen transformations, packed on 40 pounds to play then-Vice President Dick Cheney in Vice. He gained the weight by gorging on “lots of pie,” which honestly doesn’t sound that bad. Vice also stars Amy Adams as Lynne Cheney, Steve Carell as Donald Rumsfeld, Alison Pill and Lily Rabe as Mary and Liz Cheney, Tyler Perry as Colin Powell (!), and Sam Rockwell as George W. Bush, who tells Cheney that “you’re my vice” in the teaser trailer above.
