Sean Bean is The Hitcher
Actually I think this is a stroke of genius, over at Moviehole they remind us who the others in the running rumour mill up till now have been, and looking at that I think they've made an inspired choice.
Kevin Spacey and Sam Rockwell...
It's a shame though that once again Bean is cast as a baddie, I'd rather see him in a strong, positive lead, and he certainly has the talent and the presence to carry that off. However this is a superbly strong and iconic role for him, and if the movie can get over the rumoured poor plot changes, then it could turn out to be a really good role choice for him.
