Pantera and Mastodon Gave Christian Bale Insight Into Metal For Film Role

(Classic Rock) Actor Christian Bale has described how he took a "crash course" in metal drumming for his latest role - listening to Pantera and Mastodon as he learned.

The Batman star appears in The Big Short, playing the role of hedge fund manager Michael Burry. The movie is based on a true story and Burry is known to have played the drums to metal and rock to calm himself down.

Bale tells Screen Rant: "It was a wonderful crash course. Double kick drum - Pantera By Demons Be Driven. Fantastic song to begin with. This is how Mike Burry unwound, this is actually how he calmed down.

"He would listen to it all day in his headphones, not just that - Mastodon as well. His brain is on fire so much that death metal calms him. He's a very different individual to most of us."

The Big Short also stars Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling and Brad Pitt and is released in UK cinemas on January 22. Watch the full interview here.
