Billy Wilder (1906-2002)

  1. Jared Jussim, Jerry Maguire, 1996.     Auteur Cameron Crowe kept asking his idol to play Dicky Fox.  Not even a visit to his office by Tom Cruise could persuade him. There is a touch of Wilder in the movie - stock footage of a plane taking off from Wilder's Avanti, 1972. Jussim did not take off, this remains  his first and last movie.
  2. Steven Spielberg,  Vanilla Sky, 2001.     Cameron Crowe and Tom Cruise  tried and failed again to net Wilder.  Tiny Tom's pal Spielberg agreed to walk-on, instead
