Louis CK

  1. Andrew Dice Clay, Blue Jasmine, 2012.    He auditioned as Augiebut the auteur – another balding redheaded comedy writer… called Woody Allen – said Louie was to nice for the role.And made him Al, instead.Not sure what that says about Clay!The one-time comedy great had been a support player since his big break,The Adventures of Ford Fairlane, totaled his movie star hopesin 1990.
  2. James Gandolfini, Enough Said, 2013.      The stand up was not keen on the 50-something romance between Albert and Julia Louis-Dreyfuss. Nor was Gandolfini – “not a natural fit for me.” What do actors know? He won the best reviews of his life. He never saw them. Nor the film. While on holiday in Rome with his son, he died from heart attack on June 19, 2013. His devastated colleagues from The Sopranos felt the same as his tele-nephew Michael Imperioli. Although reatly impressed by how much Albert captured the real Jim in the trailer (humble, affable, incredibly lovable noted US critic Michael Adams), he found it it impossible to watch his friend in the full film. Not… yet.
  3. Daniel Henney, Big Hero 6, 2014.   “We didn’t set out to be superheroes. But sometimes life doesn’t go the way you planned.” Will Arnett, Steve Carell, Charlie Day, Will Ferrell, Louis CK, Nick Offerman, Jim Parsons and Chris Pratt, were seen (and heard!)  for voicing Tadashi, creator of the inflatable Baymax robot in Disney’s first Marvel subject  – winning the best animation Oscar. It unfurls in 2023 (we all know that computer battery number, right?) in San Fransokyo (‘Frisco rebuilt by the Japanese after an earthquake) and deals with a super-troupe behind the titular collective name… that nobody actually uses.
