Kirstie Alley

  1. Robin Curtis, Star Trek III: The Search For Spock, 1983.      Leonard Nimoy played Spock for 18 years, but two years of another Vulcan (half-Vulcan, half-Romulan) was enough for Kirstie. “We just couldn't afford her,” said Nimoy. “She'd been paid a decent sum for Star Trek II for a beginner and I thought  the studio was prepared  to pay her more than twice that much for III.  Not enough.”
  2. Rene Russo, Lethal Weapon 3, 1991.     Winona Ryder was director Richard Donner’s first choice for Lorna Cole. Producer Joel Silver disagreed: Too young at 20 to be the Internal Affairs cop investigating Mel Gibson and Danny Glover - until partnering them. Donnerr insisted but Ryder was making out with Bram Stoker’s Dracula for a certain Mr Coppola. Next? Kirstie Alley, Joan Cusack, Geena Davis, Laura Dern, Brooke Shields. Uncredited script doctor Carrie Fisher supplied Russo’s lines. Everyone else was on auto-pilot.
  3. Darryl Hannah, Memoirs Of An Invisible  Man, 1992.      Chevy Chase had very visible demands: no comedy and no TV comedy co-star.  “I just wanted it to be different...  to have its own baggage and not somebody else's.  It's got enough baggage having me in it.”  That's why it drowned.
  4. Jamie Gertz, Still Standing, TV, 2002-2006.   After six years as Rebecca on Cheers, 1987-1993, and three more as Veronica in Veronica’s Closet, 1997-2000, the last thing Kristie wanted up her Alley was another series, thankya verra much!   Also in the mix: Gertz, Kathy Griffin, Jennifer Irwin and Ally Walker.
