Standing in the shadow.
2 January 2004 | by (Muskogee OK) – See all my reviews

Better or worse; same song...same verse. Richard Thomas is unlikely cast as Hank Williams Jr. and actually makes the best of it. This TV docudrama depicts the rise of Bocephus as he overcomes alcoholism, a near fatal accident and most of all the long shadow of his beloved father. Factual or not, believe it or not this is an interesting story about a colorful character taking his own place in the history of Country Music. Fine supporting cast featuring: Clu Gulager, Allyn Ann McLerie, Merle Kilgore and Ann Gillespie. Of note is the small roles of Christian Slater and Naomi Judd. Of course Thomas "lip syncs" the singing voice of the real Hank Jr.
