    (1956- )
    Acted in ‘Deliverance (1972)’ and ‘Big Fish (2003)’
    Appeared on ‘Blue Collar TV (2004)’
    He was chosen to act in ‘Deliverance’ mainly because of his odd looks.
    Actually, he can barely play the banjo (another actor had to do the chords in the dueling banjos scene).
    He greatly disliked working with Ned Beatty and Burt Reynolds.
    His acting career after ‘Deliverance’ didn’t exactly take off.
    Martin Short frequently impersonated him on SCTV.
    Although he came to dislike the role of the ‘Banjo Boy,’ he reprised the character in ‘Big Fish.’
    His scenes in ‘Deliverance’ are among the most unforgettable in film history.
    Thanks to ‘Deliverance,’ many people wrongly assume he really is slow and inbred.
    Burt Reynolds allegedly was cold towards him and the other locals on the set.
    He made only 500 dollars for his part as ‘The Banjo Boy.’
    Tim Burton was so determined to cast him in ‘Big Fish,' he had his crew search northeast Georgia for him.
    He described Burton as ‘a real nice guy, a lot nicer than Burt Reynolds.’
    He has come to terms with ‘Deliverance’ and will pose with his banjo for photos.
