Actor Christian Bale endured a two-week drumming “crash course” to prepare for his role in financial drama “The Big Short”.

The “Batman Begins” star portrays real-life hedge fund manager Michael Burry in the comedic drama, and his character, who suffers from Asperger’s syndrome, is often featured rocking out to heavy metal music in his office and home basement, reported Guardian online.

“It was a wonderful crash course, double kick-drum, Pantera, By Demons Be Driven, fantastic song to begin with,” Bale, 41, said.

“This is how (Burry) unwound, this is how he calmed down. He would listen to it all day long in his headphones, Mastodon as well. His brain is on fire so much that death metal calms him. He’s a very different individual to most of us.”

Bale is nominated for the best performance by an actor in a supporting role Oscar at the Academy Awards next month.
