Post Heinlein mention in movie "The End of the Tour"
I saw the movie The End of the Tour today. From IMDB:

The story of the five-day interview between Rolling Stone reporter David Lipsky and acclaimed novelist David Foster Wallace, which took place right after the 1996 publication of Wallace's groundbreaking epic novel, 'Infinite Jest.'

Lipsky had published a book of his own called The Art Fair, and at the end of the movie he gives Wallace a copy of it. Wallace thanks him and says, "I'll read it after I finish the Heinlein." That was the only reference to RAH I noticed, and I have no idea how much of a fan Wallace was or *which* Heinlein he was reading at the time, but the mention brought a smile to my face.
