Billy Idol


  1. Chris Jagger, Lifeforce, 1984.    After some of their lists totaled  between 17 and 44 actors per role, London casting queens, Maud Spector and Ann Stanborough, had just five ideas for Mathilda May’s fellow space vampires: rocker Idol, Sean Crawford, Tim Dry and the winners:  Bill Malin and Mick’s brother.  And that was the name of the book being ruined here, except Cannon Pictures felt Space Vampires was too cheesey a title… for what proved the cheesiest flick of the decade.  Ed Wood would have done better.

  2. Robert Englund, The Adventures of Ford Fairlane, 1989.   A bad motorcycle smash nearly wiped out Idol - and certainly meant he couldn’t play Smiley.Finnish director Renny Harlin called up Englund to take over - they’d got on well while making the fourthNightmare On Elm Street  (The Dream Master) in 1987.  

  3. Robert Patrick, Terminator 2: Judgement Day, 1990.    A rock singer drops out of a film - particularly a James Cameron film - for one of two reasons. Drugs. Or a motor-cycle smash. Idol crashed his bike… Another rocker, Blackie Lawless, was dropped for a whole new reason. He was too tall for the T-1000. The director then saw Patrick in Die Hard 2
