My recollection--and it is only that--is that many years ago, when an ultimately abandoned attempt to film The Moviegoer was undertaken, Sam Waterston had been engaged to play Binx Bolling. He is surely too old for that role now, but I bet he would be a great Walker Percy.

>>> Exciting news with possible connection to Walker Percy.
>>> A movie is being made about the life of John Kennedy Toole (author of A Confederacy of Dunces) based on the book “Butterfly in the Typewriter” by Corey Mclaughlin.
>>> Nick Offerman is to play Ignatius Reilly, Thomas Mann (?) will be John Kennedy Toole, with Susan Sarandon as his mother.
>>> Possibilities to play Percy (complete speculation) just based on the cast list from the article: Matthew Modine, Aidan Quinn, Carey Elwes.
