James Badge Dale’s Career
His acting career began quite early, at the age of 10 he auditioned for the 1990 film adaptation of Lord of the Flies (in which he played the role of Simon). He then played the role of Chase Edmunds in the third season of the Fox TV series 24, which he later revived in the video game of the same name.
He also appeared in CSI: Miami and CSI: NY as serial killer Henry Darius. The plot originally began in the CSI: Miami season 4 episode “Felony” and ended in the CSI: NY season 2 episode “Manhattan Manhunt”, which led to a crossover between the two shows.
Dale also starred in the HBO mini-series “The Pacific,” as Robert Leckie and as Trooper Barrigan in Martin Scorsese’s “The Departed. He was the main character in AMC’s political thriller Rubicon – a story about a secret society that pulls the strings on the world political stage, like the alleged Illuminati and the Council on Foreign Relations. His most recent work is the film 13 Hours from 2016: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi and Spectral, in which he played a leading role.
James once revealed in an interview with Vanity Fair how he got along with gibberish French to be cast in The Walk. When he spoke about how Robert Zemeckis got him to be cast in The Walk, he said
“I got a call from his people, and they said: “We heard a rumor that you speak French.” Which kind of wasn’t true. Actually, I don’t want to be ambiguous. It’s not true. It’s just not true. I did another movie with Joe Carnahan [The Grey] and I played a disgusting New Yorker and pretended to be French. So maybe they had heard about it and it was kind of trickling through the pipeline.
“I made him a cassette, and according to him, he got the cassette and sat there and said, “I can’t believe it, Badge speaks French! And then the coach comes in with a French dialect and he says, “That’s not French.” And Bob’s like, “What is that?” And the dialect coach says, “It’s gibberish.
“And so they put me in with a French coach, and then we had another dialect coach as soon as we got on set. The truth is that Joe speaks French. Clément [Sibony], César [Domboy] and Charlotte [Le Bon], they live in Paris. They are French. They helped me every day, actually, and they carried me through time. I have to be careful. There are a lot of French people who would kick my ass if I tried to speak French.”
The badge has received several prestigious awards during his career. He was nominated for the 2005 Screen Actor Guild Awards for his performance in the TV series 24. He was also nominated for the Teen Choice Awards and the Young Artist Awards.
Is James Badge Dale Married? Wife
The handsome blue-eyed actor is currently single. Although he wants to keep his private life away from the media, this is not quite possible. He was once connected with Stephanie Szostak. The story made headlines for the first time when it was shown at the premiere of Marvel’s Iron Man 3 at the E! Captain Theater California in April 2013.
Probably James wanted to give the media something to talk about as there were no official statements and confessions from either side and this was the last time they were seen together in public.
The fact that he keeps his relationships and his sexual orientation secret have led many to consider him gay, which is quite normal for celebrities who want to keep their private life and sexual orientation out of the media and public view. But as long as he does not reveal any information about his private life, we can only say that he is currently single.
