Christian Bale has made fresh fans with his recent appearance as Gorr the God Butcher in Thor: Love and Thunder , but there’s one role in another franchise that he would entertain – to satisfy the kid in him. The star of the Dark Knight trilogy and Oscar winner (for The Fighter in 2011) told The Hollywood Reporter he could be persuaded to join the Star Wars franchise – but only to continue the work of the famous but unidentified stormtrooper who banged his head on the doorframe in the background of A New Hope. Bale said: “All I ever wanted in Star Wars was to be in a Star Wars outfit and hit my head on a door or something as I walked through. “The real nerds who watched Star Wars way too many times always knew about that one scene where the Stormtrooper hits his head on the door as he comes through. I wanted to be that guy. That was it. “But look, if I’m fortunate enough to be more than that, oh man, yeah. What a delight that would be. I’ve … [Read more...] about Christian Bale Reveals The One ‘Star Wars’ Role That Could Persuade Him To Join The Disney Franchise

Veteran BBC presenter Sue Barker has slammed the Corporation for the way it handled her departure from one of its most popular game shows. The former tennis player turned presenter had been hosting Question of Sport – the world’s longest running TV sports quiz show – for 24 years until 2020, when the broadcaster decided to rebrand the show with a new host. Barker told another BBC show, BBC Breakfast , that her employer had wanted her to say she was stepping down by choice, rather than being replaced. She said: “They [BBC] wanted to refresh the programme and that’s absolutely fine. “So we knew it was going to happen and it was just the way in which it happened and the way it was handled, and the way I think the BBC wanted me to say that I was walking away from it. “And yet, I’d never walk away from a job I loved. I didn’t mind being replaced. Absolutely fine. That happens. But it was just the way it was handled. “I think if we look back on it we could have … [Read more...] about BBC Former Presenter Slams Broadcaster For Handling Of Exit From World’s Longest TV Quiz
Following the announcement of huge cuts to the BBC World Service, with many staff being asked to relocate overseas, journalists have said plans to move the Vietnamese service to Thailand will pose dangers to press freedom. The Guardian reports several reporters raising concerns that there is history of the Vietnamese state abducting journalists from Thailand – and that the BBC had not recognised that Vietnamese people do not automatically feel at home in Thailand, despite both being south-east Asian countries. One World Service employee told the Guardian : “Being a critic of the Vietnamese government, even when you’re in Thailand , is not safe.” Most of the BBC’s Vietnamese-language staff have previously operated out of London, due to the oppression of press freedom in Vietnam . A BBC spokesperson told the Guardian : “The safety and security of our journalists is paramount. We are not proposing to open any new operations in Bangkok – for a number of years … [Read more...] about BBC World Service Journalists Accuse Broadcaster Of Endangering Vietnamese Staff With Plans To Move Them To Thailand
