PARIS: When Christian Bale landed the part of Moses in Ridley Scott's "Exodus: Gods and Kings", the latest epic from the British director, he found unlikely inspiration in Monty Python's irreverent comedy film "Life of Brian".Bale, 40, had just finished filming "American Hustle" and was not in the best physical shape to play Moses, who was personified by the commanding figure of Charlton Heston in Cecil B. DeMille's "The Ten Commandments" in 1956 ."Clearly he (Scott) is a better actor than me ... he just went, 'Hmmmm, very short hair'".Although he did watch "The Ten Commandments", Bale said he first turned to the 1979 comedy "Monty Python's Life of Brian".
