The Cast of Characters

Jack Fate Bob Dylan
A once-legendary musician and the wayward son of the
American President, currently residing in the county lock-up. World-weary
and resigned, Fate's best days seem to be behind him but he believes he may
still have "a few songs" left in him.

Uncle Sweetheart John Goodman
Jack Fate's former manager, a man of
questionable scruples who is in debt to mysterious creditors. Part P.T.
Barnum, part Col. Parker and perhaps a dash of Dylan's former manager,
Albert Grossman, Sweetheart springs Fate from prison to headline a concert
to benefit victims of a civil war.

Nina Veronica  Jessica Lange
A cynical, ruthless, fast-talking,
chain-smoking concert promoter. She is the uneasy liaison between Uncle
Sweetheart and the government-run television executives who will broadcast
the concert live.

Bobby Cupid  Luke Wilson
Fate's friend, fan and former-roadie; working as
a bartender when the movie begins, he drops everything to re-join Fate at
the benefit concert when he learns of his hero's release from prison
Pagan Lace Penelope Cruz
The girlfriend of Tom Friend, a
superstitious-religious fanatic who performs elaborate rituals in an attempt
to protect herself and her lover from the too-rough fingers of the world.
Tom Friend  Jeff Bridges
A veteran journalist assigned to cover the
benefit concert; having abandoned his youthful idealism long ago, Friend no
longer believes that writing can change anything.
