Fisher Stevens

  1. Steven Weber, Wings, TV, 1990-1997.    Stevens,  Hank Azaria, and future hot TV stars George Clooney (ER, 1994-2009),  David Duchovny (The X-Files, 1993-2018) and Gregg German (Ally McBeal,1997-2002) auditioned for Brian Michael Hackett, one of two breothrs running a private airline out of Nantucket, surrounded by much wackiness – so-called. (The series creator, David Angell, and his wife were killed  on 9/11 when their plane,  American Airlines flight #11,  was hijacked and flown into the World Trade Center).
  2. Richard Dreyfuss, James and the Giant Peach, 1996.    “Fisher did a really great job,” said director Henry Selick, who tested Stevens and Bruno Kirby to voice a centipede from Brooklyn in the stop-motion cartoon. “But Richard has just finished a movie for Disney that really knocked them out, so they wanted me to use him.”
  3. Bruce McGill, Rizzoli & Isles, TV, 2010-2016.   Tom Atkins, Powers Boothe, Miguel Ferrer, Robert Patrick, Eric Roberts, Fisher Stevens and three Reservoir Dogs – Messers Pink, Blonde and Orange aka Steve Buscemi, Michael Madsen, Tim Roth – were in the frame for Detective Rizzoli’s former partner, Vince Korsak in  this latest take on Cagney & Lacey.  Oh, and  in his sixth move, Paxton The Dog played the pooch called… Jo Friday!
