Watch James Franco's 25 Minute Test For 'Blood Meridian', Featuring Luke Perry
And no, Perry isn't playing the Judge, so you can all calm down. That unenviable task falls to... Jacob from Lost? (For the record, I haven't watched this thing yet, and he could quite possibly be a fantastic choice.) The film also features cool character actor Scott Glenn and Franco the Lesser, Dave.
Franco shot the footage about three or four years ago, and describes it as "the sequence where Tobin recounts how the Glanton gang met the Judge." I know Franco is the object of much literary scorn, but as far as I'm concerned he did a pretty damn okay job with McCarthy's Child of God (in limited release as of August 1st), so you never know. Let's all give it a gander and reconvein in the comments, mkay?
What did you think? Should someone drive a truck full of money up to Franco's house and turn him loose? Does Pellegrino work as the Judge? You be the judge.
