Notable role (as a child): Alexei in Anastasia: The Mystery of Anna (1986)

He's our favorite Bruce Wayne, but before Bale portrayed Batman in the best superhero trilogy, he starred in this 1986 made-for-TV movie. Wasn't so bad, though—it paved the way for his work in Steven Spielberg's Empire of the Sun the next year. A WWII prison camp drama, it's one of Spielberg's most underrated works.
