American Songwriter: "Creating Bad Blake & the Authentic Sounds of Crazy Heart"
The March issue of American Songwriter features Jeff Bridges on the cover and a great article here.
"...Cooper wasnt so interested in making a film modeled on [Hank] Thompson. 'I thought I could fictionalize Merles life, Kristoffersons, Billy Joes and Townes and put it into this one character who would be the fifth Highwayman. And I wrote it for Jeff Bridges; I tailored it for him.'
Cooper had heard Bridges album and liked his music as well as his acting. 'Hes a terrific picker and a very good singer, and he physically embodied Kris and Waylon in a way, and next to Robert Duvall, hes probably Americas greatest screen actor. If you look at Jeffs body of work, he recedes into the roles. We dont know much about Jeffs private life; therefore, you believe what you see on the screen.'
