"I'm dyslexic. I can act or read. But I can't do both." Cher

"Sometimes it can be a very simple thing, like: Wow, I want to ride that motorcycle and wear those clothes." Willem Dafoe on selecting roles

"I could do movies nonstop, even if there were no film, no result, just for the pleasure of being with the crew. It's like summer camp! I couldn't live without a crew. Well, I wish I could live with a soccer team…!" Beatrce Dalle

"He's the right height for a movie star. I'm too short." Jack Nicholson on Warren Beatty.

"I've taken movies for the money in order not to have to take movies for the money." Michael Keaton

"All the roles I refused were unnecessarily vulgar." Ginger Rogers (Oh really like… Annie Get Your Gun, Ball of Fire, King Kong (the first), Mary of Scotland, Now Voyager, South Pacific?)

"You don't make TV shows for fun - you make them for money." Lee Marvin

"I was a great casting director - forever suggesting other people instead of me." Alexandra Stewart.  She turned down Honey in Dr No.

"Acting is like masturbation. One either does it or one doesn't, but one never talks about it." * Eric Portman (*Except Ernest Borgnine and Gloria Stuart).

"Stardom? Your name becomes a brand image like a product. You become Campbell's soup, with 31 different varieties of roles you can play." Jack Nicholson.

"A big fat lady came up to me and asked, 'How do you get into the movies?' 'Take off your clothes,' I told her. 'But what about acting school, shouldn't you go to acting school first?' she asked. 'No, no, no! You just take off your clothes.'" Viva, the Andy Warhol superstar who did just that.

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.

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 - 7,333 actors - to click on... More than 40 years in the making!! And 2,077,693 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.


The UK's Rome pinup Gloria Paul was among the Domino wannabes testing for Thunderball.



How Hollywood ruined Marilyn Monroe's dream role in The Brothers Karamazov is on Marilyn's page - item #17

During his final film, The Captain Hates The Sea, 1933, John Gilbert's alcoholism was not exactly helped by being in a cast of boozers, particularly during the shooting at sea. Columbia czar Harry Cohn cabled director Lewis Milestone: "Return to studio. The cost is staggering." Milestone replied: "So is the cast!"


Some pages have muddling changes of typefaces, colours, spaces, and somewordssqueezedtogether ...  Extremely sorry! As Valmont said: "Beyond my control." This follows improving security. Long story.  Corrections are happening.
