Bud Cort

1. – Brad Dourif, One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest, 1975. Bud nixed Billy Bibbit, following director-rebel Robert Altman’s advice (after Harold and Maude, 1971), that he could be typed as a loon. Exacttly Dourif’s fate for a long while.

2. – Dudley More, Arthur, l982. Or, played by Peter Cook, really, since Moore said he based his alcoholic role on his ex-comedy partner. Pennsylvanian auteur Steve Gordon had first selected Robert Altman’s find from M*A*&S*H and Brewster McCloud – who then changed his mind about the comic drunk. “Don’t you wish you were me? I know I do.”
