Guy Pearce also stars in the movie. Chatting to Esquire about his role recently, and more specifically his character's hair parting as seen above, he said: "That was my idea. From a photograph. [Director] John [Hillcoat] had supplied a bunch of photographs from that period, and I was like, "Whoa, look at this part on this guy. It's so severe." Everything we tried to create was kind of severe. I remember, when we were cutting my sideburns and figuring out where to stop it, the hairdresser, Calvin, said, "It would actually be really interesting to get it right up here." If you look at the period, there are some haircuts that are like that."
