Bacon's wife Kyra Sedgwick confessed Crawford had not only gained their nod of approval, and that of their teen daughter Sosie, but also picked few words of advice from Bacon. "We're thrilled (with Crawford's casting). Sosie is a big fan. We met him at the White House Correspondent's Dinner. Kevin and he had a chat. He's very sweet," the Daily Star quoted Sedgwick as telling People magazine.
The actress further warned the immense pressure associated with the role, adding, "He has big shoes to fill!"
