Squeal like a pig *wreee* *wreee*

Remember the kid on the porch in the movie 'Deliverance'? The banjo boy? When Tim Burton was working on his new film, he decided he had a role for that guy, but nobody knew where to find him. In the end, it took two crew members driving around Georgia asking people if they knew 'where the banjo boy lives'. They finally found Billy Redden, 47, washing dishes in a cafe, and offered him a small role in the film, which he turned down because Burt Reynolds had treated him poorly during the filming of 'Deliverance'. Burton finally got through to him though, and he agreed to a cameo in the movie.

I'm cool with that, just so long as they don't bring Ned Beatty into it too.
