I wondered the same thing, Muskrat. Guess it's just authenticity or nostalgia for how he's described in the book. We don't need a cast that looks like they stepped off of a photoshoot stage for Banana Republic or H&M.Kinda hope b...b...buh...Bill is bald, like in the book. Dunno why. Gravitas, maybe? Authenticity? I mean, we don't need a buncha pretty boy d-bags all over the place.
Long as it ain't John Boy with a pony tail. Blecch.
