While in China to promote a movie, Christian Bale attempted to meet a personal hero, Chen Guangcheng, a blind lawyer and activist who is confined to his home and guarded by Chinese police. The police pushed and punched Bale and members of the film crew with him, and they then chased the actor's car as he fled the location.
Personally, I would have loved to see Bale go all Batman on those policemen.
This is Reza Aslan, a scholar of religion and religious history. As a part of his promotional tour for his new work, Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth, Aslan appeared on Fox to be interviewed by anchor Lauren Green. In maybe the most cringe-worthy piece of conversation ever recorded on the network, Green can't seem to get past the idea that a Muslim scholar would want to write a book about Jesus - who as you may know is something of a standout historical/religious figure across many nations and creeds. But hey, what do I know, I slept through history class.
