Danny Glover was available for only less than a week for filming so they wrote into Ahab's back story that he was burned by a dragon and could not allow his skin to be exposed to the sun. The few scenes where you see his face were indoors, at night, or during a snowstorm. The other scenes were played by a double with the lines read by Glover in a studio on his last of availability.
