William Hurt To Play Greg Allman In Biopic

(The Blues) Oscar-winning actor William Hurt has been confirmed as one of the two people who'll play Greg Allman in the biopic Midnight Rider, based on his book My Cross To Bear.

Hurt appears as the modern-day Allman while his younger self will be depicted by Tyson Ritter, singer with the All American Rejects. Duane Allman is played by Wyatt Russell.

The movie begins shooting next month although Allman reports the script is still being edited, telling Rolling Stone: "The first one they handed me just wasn't us. They had me and Duane talking and it was too many 'f**k-you's in there, and there shouldn't have been any." more on this story
