Big Fish Easter Egg - Billy "Banjo Boy" Redden

The boy who played the banjo boy in Deliverance can be seen (now as an old man) and heard for a few seconds in the hidden town "Spectre". He is sitting on a porch with the banjo on his knees, and you can hear the first tones of "Duelling Banjos".

Burton, who was on location in Alabama shooting Big Fish, said he wanted Redden for the film. He said: "The banjo boy was such an iconic figure to me. Whatever that visceral thing is in film, when you can't explain why a scene grabs you - well, that scene had it."

TO add on to my last comment, This is trivia. On the e egg form it says "Is this foreshadowing, trivia, or simply background information?" If it is it doesn't get accepted, and you just put that it wasn't to get your egg in. no offense.
