The Whisper Price Game Returns

That's right, kids, it's everyone's favorite opportunity for celeb-bashing and greed-mongering. Who's down? I thought so.

Today, we'll be whispering about Heath Ledger and Christian Bale.

Why these two? Well, both have new movies [Batman and Dogtown], but are very different actors. Heath seems petulant and spoiled, while Bale takes seriousness to a weird new level. Next up for Bale [after Batman] is Terrence Malick's "The New World" with Colin Farrell and for Ledger is the Western homo epic and Oscar pretender "Brokeback Mountain" with Jake "I'm not gay I'm just an extremely sensitive puppy dog" Gyllenhaal. Comment away [and feel free to rip on Farrell and Gyllenhaal while you're at it].

So, gang, what's your whisper price for Heath and Christian?

You should probably wait till after Batman opens, to see how well it'll do, since that'll directly affect Christian Bale's whisper price.

And Christian Bale should get whatever goddamn price he goddamn wants. He played Patrick Bateman [American Psycho]. 'Nuff said.

Heath Ledger = 40% less than Naomi Watts in a similar role
Jake Gyllenhaal = 40% less than Tobey Maguire in a similar role
Colin Farrell = 40% less than Colin Farrell in a similar role

Bale gets $5 mil for a serious role, but he has to pay $500K to be in a comedy. Seriously, can you imagine Christian Bale doing comedy? I think I'd cry-- and not tears of laughter.

Heath Ledger's probably three mil since he totally did peak with "10 Thing I Hate About You". But what a high peak that was, eh?
