The Inside Reel recorded a really nice interview with the late Heath Ledger on his role in the Bob Dylan biopic “I’m Not There” by director Todd Haynes and starring Christian Bale from “The Dark Knight” , Cate Blanchett, Marcus Carl Franklin, Richard Gere, Ben Whishaw, Kris Kristofferson and Heath Ledger as Robbie.

Synopsis: Director Todd Haynes’s unconventional biopic of the legendary singer/songwriter Bob Dylan features different actors playing the part of the Minnesota native at various stages of his remarkable career. Among the actors playing the singer are Cate Blanchett, who portrays the man during his Don’t Look Back era incarnation; Heath Ledger, as an actor playing one of the fictional Dylan’s in a movie within the movie; Christian Bale, as the Dylan beginning to chafe at being associated so strongly with political causes; Richard Gere, portraying the post-motorcycle accident period; and Marcus Carl Franklin as the young Dylan who passed himself off as the second coming of Woody Guthrie. Each section of the film not only has a different lead actor, but offers different looks that reflect various aspects of popular culture at the time. – Perry Seibert, All Movie Guide
