The Fighter

I have a question, please: wasn't Matt supposed to be in The Fighter but dropped out? I ask because Christian Bale is supposedly the front-runner to win the Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his role in The Fighter. (Yes, there are already front-runners.) Was Matt going to play that role or Mark's role? I can't remember.

The critics's awards are coming out this morning and Matt isn't on any lists so far-though his co-stars in True Grit are, as is the movie itself. Maybe he will get a Golden Globe nod tomorrow or SAG Thursday.

Re: The Fighter

Matt was going to play Christian Bale's role, dropped out, came back into the running again, and then dropped out again. The schedule for the movie kept changing and it required a heavy weight loss and gain, which Matt was advised by doctors not to do again. It was always a great role, but required a lot of work (and Matt's a huge fan of Christian Bale's anyway).

Matt's not getting any awards recognition yet for True Grit, although the film, Hailee and Jeff are getting nominations.
