Christian Bale was a topic of concerned chatter when he showed up at yesterday’s Telluride brunch with all of that American Hustle weight back on again, minus the goatee and the combover. Dressed in black T-shirt, black baggy shorts and black sneakers, tennis ball-length crew cut, hanging with a small kid. He’s bulked up  to play Dick Cheney in Adam McKay’s untitled Dick Cheney movie, which costars Steve Carell and Amy Adams. Bale will attend a Tellurude party tomorrow night for Scott Cooper‘s Hostiles.
