Amy Adams & Viggo Mortensen to Co-Star in Adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s On the Road

Novelist Jack Kerouac‘s On the Road is coming to the big screen with a stunning cast that includes Amy Adams and Viggo Mortensen.

MTV has the scoop (complete with a long list of other actors involved): “Amy will be playing Jane, the ‘emotionally damaged junkie mother of two children and the wife of Old Bull Lee,’ while Viggo will be playing Old Bull Lee. Bull was inspired by real life author William S. Burroughs, and Jane was inspired by his second wife Joan Vollmer, who died after William accidentally shot her head while drunk.”

In the video embedded above, you can watch a 1959 interview with novelist on The Steve Allen Show. His mesmerizing reading style provides a great lesson for all writers going “on the road” for book tours. A little bit of inflection, drama, and cool goes a long way. At your next reading, ask yourself, What Would Jack Kerouac Do? (Link via The Book & Levi Asher)
