PG-13 | | Biography, Drama, Music
A chronicle of country music legend Johnny Cash's life, from his early days on an Arkansas cotton farm to his rise to fame with Sun Records in Memphis, where he recorded alongside Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Carl Perkins.
Waylon Payne originally auditioned for the role of Waylon Jennings. Co-Writer and Director James Mangold was so impressed by Payne's audition that he cast Payne as Jerry Lee Lewis. Interestingly enough, the actor who got the role of Waylon Jennings was Waylon's own son, Shooter Jennings.
M-Mr. Cash? M-Mr. Cash?
Early in the movie, Johnny walks out onto the street in Memphis and you see old cars and an old mechanical parking meter. As he walks along, you soon see a modern 4-space parking meter.
In the opening credits, Robert Patrick's name appears to pass through the prison bars, like his T-1000 character did in Terminator 2: Judgment Day.
Originally released on DVD in its theatrical incarnation. An extended cut, adding about 16 minutes worth of additional footage into the movie, was released later on. The French Blu-Ray version contains the extended cut, while the American version contains the theatrical version.
