The Fighter: Homer Bailey or Christian Bale?

I went to the movies the other night (surprise, surprise) to see the new movie The Fighter.  I knew it was up for quite a few awards so that made it a must for me to see right away. I also enjoy Mark Wahlberg, Christian Bale and Amy Adams who are the three main stars in the film.

Overall, I really enjoyed this film and thought the acting was great.  I see it winning a few awards this year.  Bale was superb in his role, but I had one problem with him throughout the movie.  I kept thinking he was Homer Bailey, starting pitcher for the Cincinnati Reds. Bale had to lose weight for this role, making him look more like Bailey.  Take a look at some of the pictures below and tell me what you think and if you can figure out who is who.

You can't tell me these two don't look alike

Any idea?
