Christian Bale's co-star Thomas Lennon was 'worried' before meeting 'intense' actor
Express.co.uk, Thomas revealed: "I was very worried to meet Christian Bale as I was told he was very intense sometimes."But you would not meet a funnier person.So, really I wish I could tell you I had horror stories."The horror stories are most self-inflicted because we’re in the movie business.He continued: "You tend to be surprised by the kindness of the people that stick around, and they stick around for a reason."In the Terrence Malick film, Thomas plays a friend of Christian's as they walk around a Hollywood party.At the time, Thomas told Business Insider that he had actually never watched a Malik film.He said: "I got a call from my agent and he said, ‘Do you know Terrence Malick?’"And I decided I would try to be a smarty-pants and I said, ‘Of course,’ but I had never seen any of his films."Thomas then agreed to the role without being given any details about who he was playing or what the film was about.As well as being a successful actor, Thomas is also a very accomplished screenwriter with his partner Robert Ben Garant.They wrote the Night at the Museum films, The Pacifier, Bulls of Fury and Baywatch.He is currently promoting the new series of Reno 911! where he plays Lieutenant Jim Dangle.The show is a parody of US law enforcement shows, with comical actors playing the role of police officers.Speaking about the series, Thomas said: "I think with the show we’ve gotten to a place where we just don’t have to operate in a place of fear anymore."Like the new Roku channel episodes, some people might get shocked by things but because we have sort of constantly grown the show, we don’t ask for feedback."I think we take on things that no other show has accomplished or even other comedy shows."The latest series features

‘You Won’t Be Alone’ Film Review: Ambitious Horror Tale Collapses into Distracting Excess
th century Macedonia, writer-director Goran Stolevski’s debut feature presents a disorienting narrative about Nevena (mostly played by Noomi Rapace), a shape-shifting teenage witch who’s kidnapped and then haunted by the malicious “wolf-eateress” conjurer Maria (Anamaria Marinca, “4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days”).The movie’s heavy-handed and often distracting impressionistic style — lots of too-tight extreme close-ups, wobbly hand-held camerawork, whispery stream-of-conscious voiceover narration, and over-edited montages — will understandably frustrate some viewers and draw comparisons to recent dramas directed by Terrence Malick (“Knight of Cups,” “The Tree of Life”) as well as Robert Eggers’ “elevated horror” movies “The Witch” and “The Lighthouse.” Stolevski’s pretentious and mindlessly alienating style also smothers his ensemble cast’s performances and his crew’s diligent contributions, especially work by production designer Bethany Ryan, costume designer Sladjana Perić-Santrač, sound designer Emma Bortignon, and their respective teams.Most of “You Won’t Be Alone” concerns Nevena (first played by Petra Ćirić, then Sara Klimoska) and her vain attempts at understanding basic human experiences after Yelena’s biological mother Yoana (Kamka Tocinovski) forces her to spend her childhood hiding from the predatory Maria. Yelena and the others usually explain their motives through elliptical, fragmented dialogue and voiceover narration, so it’s often hard to tell why they do what they do unless it’s heavily implied through distracting close-ups and babbling commentary.Basically, Nevena’s story begins after Maria abducts and adopts her.
