Christoper Walken, definitely not. That reminds me of 'King of New York'....great walken flick. Gary Busey is more crazy that tough. Doesn't seem to have the ability to be calculating. Likeable, but a B rate actor. THe peak of his career was the first Lethal Weapon. Bale isn't there yet. But he does have the ability to look mean and violent, something most have lost in the last couple of decades. Hopefully he'll get anotheer role like American Psycho where he puts the smack down.
