American Psycho is a psychological thriller that follows the story of Patrick Bateman (Christian Bale), a wealthy investment banker in the late 1980s who leads a double life as a serial killer. The film explores complex interweaving themes of identity, consumerism, and the dark side of the American Dream. Christian Bale’s performance as Bateman is chilling and unforgettable, and the film’s dark humor and satirical take on the excess of the 80s make it a truly unique motion picture.

While it didn’t flop at the box office, it wasn’t a total smash hit either. However, its cult status grows with every passing year. At its core, American Psycho is much more than a typical serial killer movie. Furthermore, its solid place in cinema history only expands as its ensemble cast continues to deliver phenomenal work in TV and film. So, let’s take a deep dive into the cast of American Psycho.

In fact, he was nearly replaced by Leonardo DiCaprio who was considered a much bigger star at the time. This didn’t stop Bale though. He spent months preparing for the role in hopes that the studio would see his dedication and cast him. Luckily for Bale, his persistence and dedication to his craft eventually won him the part.

Christian Bale has since gone on to be one of the greatest leading men in Hollywood, boasting a penchant for method acting. He has both gained and lost significant amounts of weight for his roles.
