Alice Cooper

  1. Tim Curry, It, TV, 1989.    Cooper sounded an inspired idea for the evil clown, Pennywise.  Except, of course, with him aboard the 30th of Stephen King’s staggering 313 screen credits  would have become The Alice Cooper Show.  Tim  Curry almost left the two-parter, worrying about too many hours in make-up as he’d suffered as Darkness in Legend, 1984.  But he finally agreed, so Roddy McDowall and Malcolm McDowell chose other gigs.
  2. Lukas Haas, Breakfast of Champions, 1999.    Italian producer Dino De Laurentiis bought the Kurt Vonnegut satire for Robert Altman to repeat his 1974 Nashville triumph with. But first, they would succeed wjth Buffalo Bill and the Indians, or Sitting Bull’s History Lesson. Being as long-winded as the title, that flopped and  Dino took Altman’s Breakfast away. Bob’s cast had included the Peter Falk as Dwayne Hoover, Alice Cooper for his son, Bunny, Sterling Hayden as Kilgore Trout and Ruth Gordon as an old man! They became Bruce Willis, Lukas Haas, Albert Finney and Ken Hudson Campbell in the version made by Alan Rudolph… Altman’s longtime apprentice. He made a  dog’s breakfast of it.
