William Sadler: BILL & TED FACE THE MUSIC Beautifully Pays Tribute to George Carlin

Dean Parisot’s Bill & Ted Face the Music will see the return of not only Alex Winter as William “Bill” S. Preston Esq. and Keanu Reeves as Theodore “Ted” Logan, but William Sadler as Death.

And today, Sadler assured us fans that it pays beautiful tribute to the late, great George Carlin.

He tells NME: “One of the big hurdles was what do you do with the character of Rufus now that George Carlin has gone? But I honestly think that the writers handled that beautifully in the script and I think audiences will be pleasantly surprised.”

Bill & Ted Face the Music will see time-traveling exploits of William “Bill” S. Preston Esq. and Theodore “Ted” Logan facing their highest stakes ever.  Yet to fulfill their rock and roll destiny, the now middle-aged best friends set out on a new adventure when a visitor from the future warns them that only their song can save life as we know it. Along the way, they will be helped by their daughters, a new batch of historical figures, and a few music legends — to seek the song that will set their world right and bring harmony in the universe.
