Malachy McCourt

  1. Rene Auberjonois, M*A*S*H, 1969.       Something of a professional Irishman, McCourt was Robert Altman’s   first choice for the chaplain, Father Mulcahy. “He wanted a real Irish priest. But the producer [Ingo Preminger], didn’t like me. At the time, Bob didn’t have what it took to over-rule him, so I was out. There went my acting career. Every time I saw Bob after that… he always said: I owe you one, Malachy, I owe you one.’ True story.” So is the fact that he never won an Altman  movie.
