Bale showed up at the Toronto International Film festival showing off some serious weight gain. Apparently, he's adding pounds for an upcoming portrayal of former Vice President Dick Cheney. He'll be playing Cheney in the upcoming biopic Backseat, which doesn't have a release date as of right now.

When asked how he's been putting on the weight, Bale responded by saying "I've just been eating a lot of pies." Top tip for anyone trying to gain weight fast, though the sugar and fat there definitely aren't gonna do you any favors in the health department. Still, we appreciate Bale's commitment to his role, and can't wait to witness his rendition of the former VP.
