LOS ANGELES: When Robert Redford first acquired the film rights to Bill Bryson's memoir "A Walk in the Woods," he knew exactly who he wanted to play his Appalachian Trail hiking comrade: Paul Newman. The two men were colleagues and lifetime friends as well.Newman, whose health was in decline, was afraid he wouldn't be up for the physical challenges of the role. When Newman died in 2008, the project nearly died, too.Then Redford met Nick Nolte.Director Ken Kwapis said in the rehearsal process the two actors used their own personal histories to fill in the gaps of their characters.On the eve of "A Walk in the Woods" release, Redford, 79, reflected on some of his classic two-handers, beginning with 1969's "Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid".Redford said the history of his 1976 movie "All the President's Men" is almost more interesting than the project itself.
