The Ballad of Bill Heck

.
If ever there was a name for an actor to have that would fit them right in to a Western made by the Coen Brothers that name would be Bill Heck, so it's a good thing a Western made by the Coen Brothers has just happened, while a man who goes my Bill Heck is working. I am seeing the film (which goes by The Ballad of Buster Scruggs) this morning for the NYFF so this is my farewell for a few hours. Anyway I can't tell you how big Mr. Heck's role is in the film, not having seen it quite yet - I can tell you the above picture of him being molested on stage by Dana Delany (in a production of Night of the Iguana) is making me hope Mr. Heck has a gosh-darn big role, though.

Do you recognize Bill Heck from anything though? His career is still pretty fresh but he's been in some things (The Alienist, The Leftovers) and he's done some gay roles - he was in Yen Tan's 2013 film Pit Stop (see below) and he's also in Tan's upcoming film 1985 which I shared the trailer for recently and which is screening at NewFest here in NYC this month.
