In the film, Adam Driver plays Al Cody (seen at right), an eccentric, cowboy hat-wearing folkie whose real name turns out to be Arthur Milgram and who hails not from the range, but from New Jersey. The character is a close match to famed troubadour Ramblin' Jack Elliott (seen at left), born Elliot Charles Adnopoz in Brooklyn.
