  9. Uncommon Bird: Edward Norton’s Abandoned Movie Stardom

    Kevin Lincoln

    One of the most confusing aspects of the movie business is how actors end up in the roles they do. In 1971, William Friedkin did everything short of file a restraining order to keep Gene Hackman from playing Popeye Doyle in The French Connection. Joh...
