Here’s one hint to the identity of this fine fellow: “His obsession with gold will ultimately lead him to ruin.”

Maybe it's a new deluxe resort with all gold fixtures. Gold lamps, gold sinks, gold toilets, even a golden shower.

I think DH has it. He says it is Donald Sutherland, and believes he will star in the Big Thunder Mountain tv series ABC is producing a pilot for. We read about the pilot in the Chicago Tribune.

I would guess it is related to the BTMRR show as well. It looks like they will be starting to promote it soon to get a buzz going.

I was thinking the same thing. If he isn't in the new show, someone used him as a model for the portrait

The fellow’s name is Barnabas T. Bullion, and he’s the gold magnate who rules the Big Thunder Mining Company with a golden fist. Imagineers have already begun working overnight in the park on the attraction’s new interactive queue, where you’ll be able to see this portrait, as well as an additional landscape portrait of the mountain itself.

So I take it BTMR is down for refurb. If it is down, when will it be back up?

They are only changing the queue and working on it at night. So far there is no scheduled down-time. There's a good chance you could get a day or two shut-down to re-route the queue.

There is no pilot commitment for the TV series, nor are actors committed. All Disney has done is commission a script.

The portrait is based upon Imagineer Tony Baxter who helped design BTMR, Splash Mountain and others.

I'll have to take your word for it that your info is more accurate than the Chicago Tribune. Wouldn't be the first time a newspaper ran off the rails with a story

Big Thunder Mountain Railroad is on the track to TV.

ABC has bought a supernatural adventure drama script from Chris Morgan and Jason Fuchs based on the Disneyland and Disney World roller-coaster ride.

ABC Studio is producing. Morgan and Fuchs would exec produce.

Fuchs is an actor and writer who penned the bigscreen animation pic "Ice Age: Continental Drift," released last summer.

Chris Morgan is currently working on the sixth installment of "The Fast and the Furious" franchise for Universal. He has written other "Fast and Furious" installments as well.
