Old authentic old African American old acoustic old school bluesman from the 2001 movie Ghost World. Seymour (Steve Buscemi) and Enid (Thora Birch) go see him play. Seymour has one of his 78's- only one of two known copies! Fred Chatman has the misfortune to open for all-white "authentic" blooze rockers, Blueshammer. Seymour mentions other real period artists throughout the film (Skip James, Memphis Minnie, Geeshie Wiley, Lionel Belasco), but this one is fake. Played by J.J. 'Bad Boy' Jones.
