We all at some point should discuss our "casting" choices in these things. (There have been some doozy's throughout this thread !)

As I've said before, when I read each entry here I actually try to imagine the completed films. big grin


Sutherland's character would have definately partied with those guys at some point back in high school. I am always reminded of his old hippy character from "Animal House" when I think of him. Not authoritative enough here. Enter Bruce Dern for the needed dose of pigheaded a-hole appeal.

Farley would have been merciless on those guys without thinking twice or batting an eyelash just because he liked it. After all, he's Bruce Dern!

Funny.

There was a trend in the 1980s to cast old 1970s "anti heroes" as authority figures. Warren Oates in Stripes and Blue Thunder comes to mind. Stupid '80s. wink

The movies changed, and to stay a working actor and maintain the lifestyle I guess they had to accept some stinkers. Although "Stripes" did give Oates a second wind with younger audiences. That movie remains popular today (Can't say the same for "Blue Thunder" though..) Plus, you have to give Ivan Reitman credit for having the good sense to employ Elmer Bernstein in those years which kept him active and exposed his music to a whole new demographic.

I would have loved Sean Connery as Sybok. It would have been great.
Larry Luckinbill did do a terrific job though, his performance is really good, despite the writing.
