According to the novel by Stephen King, Percy Wetmore is supposed to be 21. During production, Doug Hutchison (Percy) was 39 years old. He told the director he was in his early/mid 30s. When he went to audition for The Salton Sea (2002), the director told him he was 'too young,' resulting in Hutchison having to show him his drivers license which proved his age. See more »

The Green Mile is a masterwork. This is film as art, at it's very best. The depth of the cast is extraordinary, with all of the players delivering excellent performances. There is a clear sense here that all involved in the production knew that this was something special, and gave it their all. See this film if you truly enjoy actors giving everything to their craft. Watch for the countless subtleties of expression, and the great power that the cast creates with silence. This is evident in the opening sequence and remains throughout. Above all, Michael Duncan as John Coffey is exceptional. He brings gripping emotion to a unique, fascinating character.
The Green Mile should bring you joy, laughter, and if you are like most in the theater this night, tears.
