    In what universe can a 51 year old bald Jean Marc Barr play a 38 year old Jack Kerouac? Ridiculous casting. As a Kerouac scholar, I see another Hollywood debacle.

      Awesome news, Love Jack Kerouac and this cast is pretty solid. Crosses fingers they get this right. On The Road was one of those books i fell in love with in High School.

        Anthony Edwards? I haven't seen him since ER, when Dr. Mark Green went through the most excruciating death I have ever seen on television. I hope this works for him.
