    I just saw a preview for this! Looks awesome! Did Christian lose a lot of weight again? He looked really thin.

    I really want to see this. I live about 20 minutes away from Lowell, Mass, and it is a gritty and richly historic and atmospheric city--an old mill town that experienced many waves of immigrants and waxing and waning fortunes over the years. A few years ago I read an article in the Globe about Mickey Ward and his brother and it was fucking fascinating.

    I go to Lowell periodically for a variety of reasons, including having to appear for jury duty periodically. Basically every case I am called for involves substance abusers, usually Irish-American (sorry to offend), beating on other substance abusers. There is also an uneasy relationship between the various waves of immigrants (mostly Asian at this point). For years I have thought that this city and its 'issues' would lend itself to movies and documentaries.

    Sorry for that little digression, but it would be great if the movies found this city and helped raise its fortunes a little.

    Can you imagine working on set with these two guys? I'd be a bumbling mess, worrying I'd put a foot wrong and get my arse handed to me.

    On a side note, Lowell is a shit hole, but does have some great bars because of the university being there. However, there are a whole lot of areas there you shouldn't walk around at night.

    Those fake erect nipples from sex and the city would work magic.

    Saw it this week and I loved it. It will be on my top 10 list for 2010. Bale was simply amazing, he better win the Oscar!

    I don't know how Mark Wahlberg is on set but Christian Bale is downright MEAN. Worked with him on Public Enemies. However, there is no doubt that both of them are oustanding actors.

    No matter what, this film looks phenomenal, already getting nomination after nomination. Love these kinds of movies!

    saw this last night.

    it was very good, good performances, worth seeing. but the last 15 minutes were definitely the weakest part of the movie.

    Did You Spot Conan O'Brien's Sister in The Fighter?

    Monday December 20, 2010 11:45 AM EST

    Conan and Kate O'Brien

    In The Fighter, Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale claim the most screen time, but there's no denying their slew of sisters' scene-stealing abilities.

    What you might not have realized is that one of the Eklund women has a famous brother in real life, too. Kate O'Brien, sister to late night TV host Conan O'Brien, plays Phyllis "Beaver" Eklund in her acting debut.

    "I work at a school and someone said, 'They're casting [The Fighter], you should go down, you look Irish Catholic,' " Kate O'Brien told PEOPLE. "I'm one of six, so it wasn't that hard for me to look like I might have more siblings [in the movie]."

    Reporting by ANNE DRISCOLL

    i'm not sure what it's like to be an actor and whether you get your feelings hurt about a part but they definitely went looking for some extremely WT/unattractive ladies to be the sisters...
