Two Ryan Bingham's will be at the Oscars this year.
1. Ryan Bingham the song-writer who worked with T-Bone Burnett on Crazy Heart, including the Academy Award nominated song "The Weary Kind" (who also acted in the film as well, you will recognize him as the band-for-hire that performs at the bowling alley at the beginning of the film, his character's name is Tony).
2. Ryan Bingham the character performed by George Clooney in the Oscar nominated performance for Up in the Air.
Kind of crazy coincidence if you ask me? I would hope they'd do a red carpet photo op, but kind of doubt it'll happen.
