Payday Loans
Kirstie Alley

  1. Robin Curtis, Star Trek III: The Search For Spock, 1983.. “She'd been paid a decent sum for Star Trek IIfor a beginner,” said director Leonard Nimoy, “and I thought  the studio was prepared  to pay her more than twice that much forIII.” But not as much as he agent demanded - ie more than DeForest (Bones) Kelley!  “I figured they weren't very interested in me for Saavik,” said Alley. She felt Curtis “was at a real disadvantage playing the role someone else established, especially with Star Trek, which has an enormous following.  I think she did a fine job… except that, when I saw the film, I said: She isn’t Saavik. am. ”

  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. Donner 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.
