Duke. My least favorite movie because even tho I LOVE Bruce Dern, I HATE his character. I HATE all bullies. He rocked it tho, I'll give him that. On the set, before the scene Duke and Dern were sitting together and Duke leaned in to Dern and said, "Oooo, they're gona Hate you for this." And he's right.
