Harry Anderson (1952-2018)

  1. Tom Hanks, Forrest Gump, 1993.     "My name is Forrest Gump. People call me Forrest Gump." Author Winston Graham (who did not write that line, it was a Hanks adlib) saw John Goodman as his creation. Director Robert Zemeckis did not.    His first choice was Harry Anderson  - stuck in Dave’s World, 1993-1997. Chevy Chase, Bill Murray and John Travolta simply refused. Big misake confessed Travolta. Well, they all, agreed on that when Hanks earned his second consecutive Oscar plus an estimated $40m from his profits-deal. Life was really like a box of chocolates or a movie deal.  “Ya never know what you're gonna get."
  2. Bill Hader, It: Chapter Two, 2018.   By an awful coincidence, Hader was in talks about playing Richie Tozer in the very April 2018 week when Andersonn, the original Tozer, died after a stroke. He was known as Harry the Hat because of his constant fedora. And my favourite quote from the-magician-cum-actor Anderson was: “I’m richer than Davy Crockett."
