I just got off the phone with Sam.  He says he'll do it, but he's got to get a vintage Mk II Cobra when he's done filming.  That seems fair.
Thanks,

academy award winner...you heard it here first

+1 for Sam Elliott.  I was thinking he would be a good actor for this role even before his name up in this thread!

Too bad Andy Griffith is dead...he'd have been a great older CS, back in his Matlock years.

I've read that Griffith was about as cranky as CS too.

Busey would be a great choice. Just might be hard to control on set since his head injury. Poor guys beaten up a few crew. Pesci is gold.

Don't know if Pesci can do an Italian accent.  Enzo with a Brooklyn accent would be hilarious!   "Did he say Yutes?"    ;D

Hollywood is looking for accuracy.  They need someone who has been married at least seven times. That narrows to the field down to just over a few thousand, I believe.  8)
