SCOTT BAIO and CHRISTIAN BALE : "I Love N.Y." and "Portrait Of A Lady"

15. Each played an impetuous young suitor whose quixotic courtship of
the rich girl he loves is being negatively undermined and obstructed by
her domineering and judgmental father, a patriarchal autocrat
effectively portrayed by a venerable master of stage and screen.

Scott was Mario Cotone, a struggling yet talented photographer from Little Italy
who becomes enraptured with debutante queen Nicole (Kelly Van der Velden),
the cherished offspring of John Robertson Yeats (Christopher Plummer),
a very narcissistic and temperamental famous actor starring in a hit Broadway musical
who jealously disapproves of their kindled romance and undertakes to separate the lovers
in "I Love N.Y."

Christian was Edward Rosier, a foppish and doting collector of antiques and bibelots
who falls in love with Pansy (Valentina Cervi), the innocent and kind daughter of
Gilbert Osmond (John Malkovich), a sinister and ghoulish dilettante expatriate
who bars her from seeing the young man while also trapping
Isabel Archer (Nicole Kidman), a newly prosperous vacationing heiress, into an unhappy marriage
in "Portrait Of A Lady".

SCOTT BAIO and CHRISTIAN BALE : "Italian Ties" and "Royal Deceit"

16. Each depicted a loyal and noble son who conspires to set things right
in his own family tragically burdened with grievous kinship issues
revolving around masculine jealousies, quarrels and estrangements,
his veiled mission having been originally triggered by
the untimely demise of the clan's influential patriarch.

Scott delineated the main character of Richie,
the affable ringleader within his large Italian-American family,
who quietly persuades two cousins,
the wise-cracking Phil (Thomas Calabro) and
the negativity-obsessed Al (Carlo Imperato),
to kidnap their uncommunicative and emotionally distant fathers
(Dean Stockwell, Alex Rocco and Joe Viterelli)
for a surprise weekend camping jubilee of necessary male bonding
after the sad death of their venerable grandfather
in "Italian Ties" (a.k.a. "Face To Face").

Christian demonstrated his impressive thespic range as Amled,
a 16th century Danish prince who feigns madness in order to
secretly plot vengeance against his envious uncle Fenge (Gabriel Byrne),
the guilty murderer of his slain father, the kingdom's legitimate ruler,
and the new husband of his widowed mother Queen Geruth (Helen Mirren)
in "Royal Deceit" (a.k.a. "Prince Of Jutland"),
taken from an ancient historical saga upon which
William Shakespeare based his famous play "Hamlet".

SCOTT BAIO and CHRISTIAN BALE : "Stoned" and "The Machinist"

17. Each garnered accolades for bravely portraying
a vulnerable and troubled male whose deep-seated private insecurities
contribute to his languishing physical and mental health that results in
a negatively jaundiced state of consciousness which tragically causes
harmful injury to others, unleashing queasy emotions of knife-like personal guilt.

Scott captured his first Emmy nomination, plus a Youth In Film Trophy
as Best Young Actor In A Television Special, for his moving portrayal of
Jack Melon, a gangling teenage high school kid ignored by his father
and overshadowed by his elder sibling, who foolishly deals with
his social awkwardness and inferiority complex through habitual marijuana smoking,
a worsening drug vice that ultimately proves almost fatal during a rowboat accident
which sends his brother to the hospital and jeopardizes the latter's athletic qualifications in "Stoned".

Christian received a Best Actor Prize from the Catalonian International Film Festival,
plus a heavy dose of criticism and controversy, for his shocking role as
Trevor Reznick, a gruesomely emaciated factory worker suffering from
chronic insomnia and overwhelming weight loss, who unfortunately gets distracted on the job
and becomes responsible for a mechanical accident which injures a fellow co-worker,
thereafter falling into a nightmarish quagmire of paranoia and suspicion about bizarre events within his life
that offer vital clues to solving the Kafkaesque mystery of what is really haunting him in "The Machinist".
