Scott Disick Gets 'Psycho' for Kanye West
Hmm...maybe Scott Disick should stick to his day job?
Kourtney Kardashian's baby daddy finally got the chance to channel his inner Patrick Bateman, the iconic character played by Christian Bale in "American Psycho," to help promote sort-of-brother-in-law Kanye West.
A new video for West's album "Yeezus," which features Disick and Kim Kardashian BFF Jonathan Chebon recreating a memorable scene from "American Psycho," went viral on Tuesday.
Wearing a white raincoat and holding an ax, 30-year-old Disick mimics the infamous scene from the 2000 twisted film.
"Hey, do you like Kanye West?" Disick asks Cheban in the clip. "The early work was a little too hip-hop for me and my taste, but when "Dark Twisted Fantasy" came out in 2010, I think he really came into his own both musically and lyrically."
The scene is a parody of the "Do you like Huey Lewis and the News?" clip that Bale brilliantly acted in. Except this time, the floor is lined with pages from Billboard magazine.
The spoof is spot-on, although it's not exactly an Academy Award-winning performance from the TV personalities. Then again - isn't that why Christian Bale does what he does, and the "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" stars do what they do?
"American Psycho" author Bret Easton Ellis tweeted the following about the short video:

Back in December 2011, it was announced Lionsgate was looking to remake the flick.
"Just heard there doing a remake of American Psycho! best news i have ever heard! i hope they call me!" Disick tweeted at the time.
"I have warned Lionsgate that I will not approve a new version of 'American Psycho' unless it stars SCOTT DISICK or MILES FISHER," Ellis tweeted. "I am waiting for Scott Disick to ask: 'Who in the hell is Bret Easton Ellis?"
Well, now you've seen what Disick has to offer. Comment away.
