Vice: Compare Christian Bale, Amy Adams and More to Real-Life People in Dick Cheney Movie
Christian Bale as Dick Cheney
With a bald head and a heavier figure, Bale, 43, has undergone another jaw-dropping transformation for his new role.
Vice is said to tell the “epic story” behind how a Washington insider became Vice President to George W. Bush and impacted history.
Click through for all the other uncannytransformations in the upcoming movie.
Young Dick Cheney
Although Cheney is remembered for the gray hair and gold-rimmed glasses he sported as Vice President, Bale also easily transformed into a younger version of the influential politician for the movie.
Amy Adams as Lynne Cheney
The Arrival actress tries her hand at the Cheney's formidable wife, who has an impressive resume of her own and served as chair for the National Endowment for the Humanities in the years before becoming Second Lady. Lynne is also the author of over a dozen books and was a talk-show host.
Adams is already turning heads just as much as Bale for her transformation, including Lynne's signature hair.
Sam Rockwell as President George W. Bush
In just the short footage from the trailer, fans already got to see how well Sam Rockwell merges former president George W. Bush's charm and power in his performance. With a perfect impression of his voice, the Oscar winner visually morphs into the 43rd President for the movie.
George W. Bush
And it's not just his presidential side that Rockwell captures. The extended first scene of the trailer shows Bush at his most comfortable — which Rockwell perfectly imitates.
Steve Carell as Donal Rumsfeld
Steve Carell morphs into former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, who served under President Gerald Ford and later President George W. Bush.
Rumsfeld kickstarted Cheney's career in a way when he suggested him as a replacement for Chief of Staff when President Ford appointed Rumsfeld to Secretary of Defense in 1975.
Young Donald Rumsfeld
Like Bale with Cheney, Carell also plays a younger Rumsfeld when they were both serving under President Ford before reuniting under President Bush.
Alison Pill as Mary Cheney
Mary Cheney made waves for being the vice president's openly gay daughter, and the one who prompted Cheney and his wife Lynne to support same-sex marriage. Mary has been with her partner Heather since 1992.
Though Alison Pill's portrayal of her wasn't shown in the trailer, the former Newsroom star is a spitting image of the former second daughter.
Lily Rabe as Liz Cheney
Liz is the vice president's elder daughter, and followed in her father's footsteps by now holding the U.S. Representative seat her father held in Wyoming from 1979 to 1989.
The Representative is played by Lily Rabe in the upcoming movie.
Tyler Perry as Colin Powell
Tyler Perry is stepping into big shoes as he plays Colin Powell, the first black man to ever hold the positon of Secretary of State. Powell was appointed to his job by President Bush just 8 months before the 9/11 attacks.
