Howie Mandell

  1. Tom Hanks, Bachelor Party, 1983.        A madcap comedy that was as dramatic, behind the camera, as the heavier 1956 film of the same name. After one week, head Fox Joe Wizan sacked the leads (Paul Reiser and Kelly McGillis) for bad (or no) chemistry and spent three weeks testing new Richies - er, no, now it was Ricky. The queue included Jim Carrey, Howie Mandell, Dean Paul Martin, David Naughton, Tim Robbins. Not Hanks… He’d previously passed but was called back (for $15,000 a week) after completing Splash - which made him a star and, therefore, helped save Wizan’s bacon. McGillis went on to Witness, Top Gun, The Accused and Reiser headed TV’s Mad About You, 1992-1999. Oh and Bachelor sequel came out… 24 years later!  Don’t know a soul who saw it.
