Willie Nelson

  1. Dennis Hopper, The Last Movie, 1970.   Dennis always intended Kansas, his  “stunt  man in a lousy Western,” should be Montgomery Clift  - and the role needed an older player. When Clift died, Hopper took over at 34. “It was easier doing it myself than explain to another actor what I wanted.”  He had tested various hopefuls and considered  two of John Ford’s family: Ben Johnson and John Wayne. Plus Nelson!!  My God, Willie and Dennis shooting in Peru, the coke capital of the world… they’d still be there!
  2. Burt Reynolds,  The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, 1982. “I can damn well tell,” said co-author Larry L King, quoting the musical's Sheriff Ed Earl Dodd, “when somebody's pissin' on my boots and tellin' me it's a rainstorm.”  Universal dumping Willie was  just the start  of King's headaches with Reynolds and  co-star Dolly Parton. “[He] wants to make Smokey and the Bandit Go  to a Whorehouse. Dolly's writing her own songs. I see only a tenuous connection between Whorehouse as we did it and the mess they're concocting in Hollywood. I suppose she will [wear her outlandish wigs] and probably Burt will wear his, too. I understand they're both bald.”
