Paul Giammatti (with hairpiece in place) will play the younger Robert J., and Mark Hamill will play the grizzled veteran illustrator.
Look for it soon on big screens everywhere.
"See Bob Larkin draw! See Bob Larkin paint! See Bob Larkin pose as a chimp!"
Thanks to Steve Roman for the tip.

Interestingly, in 1980, when Marvel released its multiple collected versions of the comic adaptation of Star Wars, Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, the only cover art that was used for all versions was Bob’s painting—no imitations here!
Back in the 1970s and 1980s, when Marvel Comics became the go-to publisher of comics adapting blockbuster films, they often released multiple versions of the same adaptation, in different formats. Case in point: 1977’s Close Encounters of the Third Kind, and 1978’s Battlestar Galactica, which were both published as magazine-sized issues of Marvel Super Special (#3 and #8, respectively) and as oversized treasury editions. But they didn’t use the same cover art.
