Christian Bale, who played the titular character of Dick Cheney in Vice, ended up winning the award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Musical or Comedy in the recently concluded 2019 Golden Globe event.
But the most exciting part of his acceptance speech was thanking SATAN for being an inspiration on his role and the responsible for the biopic Vice.
“Ah look at us, what a bunch of lucky buggers we are, right, for making a life out of doing something that we love,” he started out earnestly enough, first thanking his wife and giving her credit for helping him learn that less is more when it comes to not tanking speeches. With that said, he went on to lay into the charisma-free bleeps that made this role possible, throwing a shout-out to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and literally thanking the dark lord himself for helping him to get into character as Cheney:
Thank you to that geezer over there, Adam, he said “I’ve got to find somebody who can be absolutely charisma-free and reviled by everybody,” so he went, “That’s got to be Bale.” Thank you for all the competition, I’ll be cornering the market on charisma-free [bleep]. What do you think, Mitch McConnell, next? That could be good, couldn’t it? Thank you to Satan for giving me inspiration onto how to play this role.
