He said title

"80% of directing is casting - the rest is choreogaphy." - Peter Fonda

"Films are like life with the boring bits cut out" - Alfred Hitchcock

"Hollywood is like a fizzy drink." - Antonio Banderas

"Sometimes death can be a good career move." - Woody Allen

"Look at the puddings that come out of this guy’s oven, man. He’s a star!" - Jeff Bridges on director Hal Ashby.

"I think he was the guy in school that could never get the girl and so he extracted revenge over four decades." - Dennis Quaid on Harvey Weinstein.

"My big four idols were Bruce Lee, Muhammad Ali, Richard Pryor and Elvis." - Eddie Murphy


"I see myself kind of like a tenor. And a tenor needs to hit those high notes once in a while. Even if they’re wrong. So sometimes they’re way off. There’s a couple of roles that, you know, the needle screeched on the record." - Al Pacino

The New Yorker critic Anthony Lane agrees and comments further on Pacino’s "tic." "Whatever the role, he stretches out a word of one syllable into two, or even three, and declaims each syllable at a different pitch. … He doesn’t say "fraud," He says "frahr-aud." Call it irritable-vowel syndrome."

"Like Larry Olivier, Orson Welles has a different nose in every movie." - Dick Cavett

"Money is honey." George Harrison

"The films that you used to get - Three Days of the Condor and those kind of films - you couldn’t make now. Even Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid would be hard to make. Because the guys die in it." - George Clooney

"Hollywood is like a fizzy drink." - Antonio Banderas

"We’ll all be able to act for another 30 years.” - Robert De Niro on The Irishman de-ageing, (Not unless they improve it).

“I’m not done with the Mad Max story… There’s certainly another Mad Max coming down the pike.” - George Miller

"Don’t you know there’s a secret to getting along with everybody? You just make believe that they’re all on acid. Then it’s easy not to take anything too personally." - Robert Altman

"There’s Jack Nicholson - and then there’s everyone else." - Robin Williams.

WELCOME to a unique directory of what you never saw on-screen. The films the stars did not make. The movies that never were. The most definitive collation of casting stories ... Check up on all the films - of yesterday, today and tomorrow - that your favourite stars never made... A cast of thousands - 8,063 actors - to click on... More than 40 years in the making!! And 2,502,855 words of spirited text. The ultimate in movie trivia ... Better! Exactly the kind of history that Hollywood deserves. Back to front. Upside-down. Inside out. Full of flashbacks, close-ups, tracking shots (and, alas some badly edited sequences - sorry about that!) forming a fascinating, new and often bizarre flip-side perspective on your treasured movies and stars.

This is the film that bred this site ... after Robert Redford told me he'd planned a little black-white version - with Robert De Niro, and Michael Moriarty as Woodstein.
Thunderball wannabe ElizabethCounsell


Elisabeth Counsell tested (among the many) for Bond's masseuse Patricia Fearing in Thunderball, 1964. She had previously been in From Russia With Love.
