Walter Salles spot-on in picking Kristen for 'On The Road'

While some have questioned the casting choices, others think director Walter Salles was spot-on in picking Stewart, Hedlund and Riley to play Kerouac's iconic characters. "Well, the irony of it all is that Marylou [Stewart's character] was about 17 in 'On the Road,' and Kristen Stewart kind of looks like what I imagine she looked like"  says Dennis McNally, Grateful Dead historian and author of 'Desolation Angel,' the definitive Kerouac biography.
