Jerry Reed

  1. Robin Williams, The Survivors, 1982.    Some musical-chairs casting didn’t help.  Jack Nicholson and James Caan became Joe Bologna and Jerry Reed (he stayed aboard as Jack) who became Walter Matthau – and Robin Williams as, well, as  the poster pitch put it: “Donald’s been fired by his boss’ parrot. But he’ll survive. He’s been robbed with his pants down. But he’ll survive. He’s been shot at whilst ordering a cheese Danish. But he’ll survive. And now he’s armed himself and become a self-made soldier. But he’ll survive. Even if it kills him.”
