The Dylan Sevens, now with more attention

i'm not there

It’s been around for a while but since the Film Festival is coming, I figured I should do a piece on it. Directed by Todd Haynes, the Bob Dylan biopic I’m Not There garnered attention early for using six actors to portray Dylan over seven different stages of his life. With the untimely death of Heath Ledger (one of the seven Dylans), it’s gotten even more attention. The ultimate question still remans why give the Dylans different names.

In case you still didn’t know, here are the six actors who play the Dylan Sevens:

Marcus Carl Franklin

Ben Whishaw

Heath Ledger

Christian Bale

Richard Gere

Cate Balnchett
