Sarah Silverman

  1. Rosario Dawson, Clerks II, 2006.      New Jersey auteur – and king – Kevin Smith saw all his fantasies for Becky. Silverman loved the third Jay and Silent Bob script but had no wish to be a love interest. She would,however, have played Jeff Anderson’sRandal “in a heartbeat.” 
  2. Maggie Siff, Mad Men, TV,2007-2015.  Having guested on her Sarah Silverman Program, Jon Hamm suggested thescintillating stand-up to the series creator Matthew Weiner. That was the problem.  She  was busy enough, thank you, with her  own  series. She had to pass, therefore, on Rachel Menken. 
  3. Jackie Thon, Postal, 2007.      Just as Dave Foley, Larry Thomas, Verne Troyer and JK Simmons went against their agents to make the film, other actors like Silverman, David Cross, Jamie Kennedy and Rob Schneider refused any part of the post-9/11 satire from Germany’s Uwe Boll – “the most openly despised filmmaker of his generation,” according to San Francisco critic Peter Hartlaub.
  4. Olivia Wilde, The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, 2012.   Jessica Biel, Riki Lindhome, Michelle Monaghan and Winona Ryder were also seen for the rose between two thorny magicians in their  old-fashioned Vegas act.
