Christian BaleWith only three months of filming left for "The Dark Knight Rises," the world is Christian Bale's oyster. The Oscar-winning actor currently doesn't have any films lined up once the final installment of Christopher Nolan's Batman movies wraps, but he certainly does have options.

Variety is reporting that he has five films that he could potentially join, though he's not attached to any of them yet and none are considered front-runners at this point.

The first is in the Beyonce-starring remake of "A Star is Born," which is being directed by Clint Eastwood. There's also Michael Mann's "Gold," Scott Cooper's "Out of the Furnace," Spike Lee's "Old Boy" remake and Darren Aronofsky's biblical epic "Noah." Bale is in the prime of his career right now, so any of those options would be a good one. It will be interesting to see what direction he takes his career in now that his commitment to Nolan's franchise is finished.

If you don’t know Clifton Collins Jr., you should. He was most recently seen on-screen as Eric Bana’s Romulan right-hand man Ayel. Before that he had roles as varied as a one-armed small business owner alongside Amy Adams in “Sunshine Cleaning” and death row inmate Perry Smith in “Capote.” It’s pretty hard to get away from Zac Brown these days as well. With a #1 Billboard hit single and a gold album, Brown and his band hit the big time when they released their major label debut, The Foundation, last fall. Read More...
