Appearing in the film is one of our personal favorite actors, Crispin Glover. He plays the innkeeper at this mysterious location where a number of unsavory characters have gathered. The actor has been suspiciously absent from the big screen since 2010's Hot Tub Time Machine, and we guessed it might have something to do with his current project, an untitled movie he is directing, and starring in for the first time alongside his father Bruce Glover. It's been reported in the past that Crispin takes certain acting jobs to fund his directorial endeavors. We recently met up with him to chat about The Bag Man, and started by suggesting that this may be another 'for hire' movie that allows him to make his more personal projects.
