Bruce Springsteen

  1. Treat Williams, Hair, 1978.      Nearly, Springsteen and Madonna…! Unbelievably, Broadway’s hippy hit was once planned as a movie vehicle for Bee Gees brothers Barry and Maurice Gibb (as George Berger and Woof). A much better plan was for The Boss to play Berger. Born in Manchester England, England! But losing The Boss and Madonna – doesn’t say much for the famous eye of Czech director Milos Forman, succeeding George Lucas as director.
  2. Kurt Russell, Swing Shift, 1984.    When Kevin Costner proved unavailable, director Jonathan Demme thought of Springsteen as Lucky Lockhart.  Then, Russell, showed  up – and co-star Goldie Hawn approved him. (They are still together).  Demme thought of  Springsteen again when he wanted a song summing up Philadelphia, in 1993. The moving  song won an Oscar. 
  3. Emilo Estevez, Maximum Overdrive, 1986.  A first-time actor and a first-time director - what could possibly go wrong?!  Wiser minds prevailed and author Stephen King’s first choice was suddenjy  unavailable..   “A dumb summer picture,” said King. “I’m not rehearsing my Academy Award speech.”
  4. Michael J Fox, Light of Day, 1987.     The Boss passed - and decided he did not wish to make movies. OK, said Paul Schrader, but   yes, he’d a song. And he did - for the original title: Born In The USA. He then kept that for his next (platinum) album and wrote another   for the new title. 
  5. Larry King, The Simpsons #24: One Fish, Two Fish, Blowfish, Blue Fish, TV, 1991. Since its 1989 birth, the yellowtoon family Simpson smashed records for episodes, audiences, and the most guest stars (as themselves or others).  From Buzz Aldrin, Glenn Close (Homer’s Mom), Dennis Franz (Evil Homer!), George Harrison, Stephen Hawking, Dustin Hoffman, Bob Hope, Eric Idle to Paul and Linda McCartney, Conan O’Brien (a Simpsons writer made good), Michelle Pfeiffer, Mickey Rooney, Ringo Starr, Meryl Streep plus Barry (and Betty) White! Not all celebs played ball… So what happens when you can’t get The Boss? Why, you settle for Larry King!  (No, really).
  6. Sting, The Simpsons #48: Radio Bart, TV, 1992. Springsteen sprang away (again) and Sting stung!
