Former Child Prodigy. Method Actor. The Dark Knight Himself.
Depending on what part of the world you are (and it's already January 31 as of this writing), Today, January 30, is the birthday of one of the most distinguished actors to ever grace the silver screen - Christian Bale. Turning 38 years old this day, the British actor best known for his role as Bruce Wayne/ Batman sees his latest and final bow as The Caped Crusader later this year when "The Dark Knight Rises" shows in theaters this July 20th, and he's also earned an Academy for Best Supporting Actor for his performance in "The Fighter" last 2010. For all his achievements in the last 25 years since he started acting, Bale has been a recognizable force in the acting and Hollywood community. Many happy returns, good sir!
