Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio

  1. Meg Ryan, Innerspace,  1986.   The very title comes from dialogue in the film that inspired this spoof: Fantastic Voyage, 1965. Hero Dennis Quaid  is miniaturised into a capsule  and injected into Martin Short’s butt. (Never that funny). For the secondary rôle of Quaid‘s girl, 22 actresses were seen, auditioned and/or tested: Karen Allen, Jamie Lee Curtis, Beverly d'Angelo, Jodie Foster, Linda Hamilton, Anjelica Huston, Amy Irving (being wed to exec producer Steven Spielberg didn’t help!), Amy Madigan, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, Demi Moore, Michelle Pfeiffer, Molly Ringwald Julia Roberts, Rene Russo, Ally Sheedy, Elisabeth Shue, Madeleine Stowe, Sigourney Weaver, Claudia Wells, Sean Young. And, of course, Meg - and Quaid married her during 1991-2001.
  2. Daryl Hannah, Wall Street, 1987. Standing by to replace a supposedly ill-cast Hannah. But writer-director Oliver Stone was happy with "that  whole  shiksa goddess thing" about Daryl. Not his words; they came from his casting lady (and future producer) , Risa Bramon Garcia.
  3. Elizabeth McGovern, The Handmaiden's Tale,  1990.  She certainly knew the ones to miss.
