    I confess, I didn't know there was actually a silent film entitled "The Artist", now I feel i can't give the recent one anymore brainspace until I see the original.

    I think Springsteen was too much of a rebel to consider it, at least at the time.

    Bruce would've been awfully young for the part, IMO. The character needs to border on has-been, and Bruce would've been 26 at the time - he's seven years younger than Streisand, so I don't know how they could have pulled off the "mentor/protege" side of the film.
    Where did the notion that Bruce was under consideration come from, anyway? Was it in the commentary? I listened to that when the DVD came out and didn't mention Bruce in my review - I can't imagine I wouldn't have noted that in my review if Babs had said it.
    Just curious where it was indicated that Bruce was up for the role...

    Imagine if she I mean they had cast Bowie.
