Dickie Ecklund & Christian Bale at The Fighter Premiere
The Cast of The Fighter graced Grauman Chinese Theatre in Los Angeles last night for that Film's Premiere and everyone arrived glam.... except for Christian Bale who plays Boxer Dickie Ecklund in the Film.  Bale showed up to the Red Carpet of the event sporting (fittingly) a Tracksuit with a Jacket inscribed with Ecklund's name on it, paying homage to the former Athlete.  Ecklund is the older Brother of  legendary Boxer "Irish" Mickey Ward (Mark Wahlberg), whom the Film centers around and he was also in attendance last night, jokingly throwing Bale a punch for the Cameras, as seen above.

The Fighter continues to garner lots of Oscar buzz especially for Bale's performance with him just being named last week Best Supporting Actor by the National Board of Review.  I have seen the Film aleady and loved it but due to an Embargo, will not be able to post the Review til later this week.  Bale puts forth his best performance yet.  It will be in Limited Release in the U.S. this Friday and Canadians will get to see the film the following week.  Check back.
