Okay, we’ve figured out the best actors to play director Nicholas Ray in Phil Kaufman’s I Was Interrupted, which will cover Ray’s final decade. Candidate #1: Nick Nolte. Candidate #2: Liam Neeson. Candidate #3: Sam Shepard, but Ray’s voice was deep and bellowing so Shepard would have to do something about that aw-shucksy twangy thing. Candidate #4: Geoffrey Rush, but I don’t think so. And Candidate #5: Ian McKellen…maybe.
