Robert Duvall has played numerous iconic roles in his career — from all that Godfather-ing to, good lord, The Apostle. (See that film. See it.) But perhaps none has been quite as truly iconic as the mysterious figure of Boo Radley in the movie adaptation of Harper Lee’s only novel, To Kill A Mockingbird.
Harper Lee’s only novel until now, that is. Harper just announced that it will publish Lee’s second novel, Go Get A Watchman, in 2015. Is it just a coincidence that Robert Duvall joined Twitter just days before the announcement? And that of his three tweets so far, one is about the news of Lee’s new book? Go Get A Watchman is a sequel to To Kill A Mockingbird. Will Robert Duvall be back as Boo Radley?
“To Kill a Mockingbird” was a pivotal point in my career, we have been waiting for the second book. Congrats Harper! pic.twitter.com/LAxBQr2UOi
