|Mark, I learned something very important when I portrayed JEB Stuart. You have to include some of the legend in your portrayal. Doesn't mean you are demaning or lying, it just means most people have a set image in their mind and if you deviate from it too much you destroy the whole effect. If you wear something not quite right or something they have never seen him in you better be able to explain in a credibile manner why you're wearing it. Its not easy doing a major historical figure but if you really go into the person's mind with an open outlook and not be pompous you will do a better job.
