What else was Buffalo Bob in? I remember being really surprised watching a movie one time when whoever I was with told me that the guy in it  was Buffalo Bob.

Yeah- that's him alright.  He's good in both roles, but it is weird seeing him play a straight-arrow police commander after playing Buffalo Bob...

Buffalo Bob was played by Ted Levine.



He also did the voice of Rusty Nail in "Joyride".
Not only does he look creepy, but he sounds creepy as well.

According to the info blurps during the letterboxed films on AMC's "Much More Movie" or whatever the title is, OJ Simpson was an early candidate for the Terminator role. Guess they were onto something there and just didn't realize it.

Elvis was supposed to play the Kris Kristofferson role of the aging rock star in the 1970s version of "A Star is Born". But he was talked out of it by Colonel Parker, who was convinced the producers wanted to mock Elvis by putting him in a role playing someone similar to his reallife self. While he would have had to put up with Barbra Streisand, may think the role would have been the shot in the arm his career needed (no pun inteded), and finally given him a shot at a decent acting role, which he always wanted and never got.

The Predator was originally played by Jean Claude Van Damme. The suit they had him in looked really horrible and wasn't really scary at all. He kept passing out from the heat and they fired him.  Later on an E! bio I saw they said he had just been offered the deal with Cannon  for his first 3 cheapies for them. They were starring roles so he faked the faints on the Predator set so he would get canned and could go make his own movies.

Predator actually ran out of money and the producers convinced the studio to give them enough to finish it and get a monster that could rival Arnold. Stan Winston said he was on a plane with James Cameron and Cameron was saying he always wanted to have a creature with mandibles. This is where Stan got they idea for his creation.

Ted Levine has been in quite a few movies. Among others, he played the main cop in The Mangler and General "Bloodbath" McGrath in Wild Wild West.

I heard that Gandalf was first offered to Sean Connery and he turned it down. When he discovered that he had missed an opportunity, he decided to jump into the first fantasy/SF feature that came along, which, unfortunately was the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.

Another actor who has a poor choice in B movies, must be Terence Stamp. After Superman and Star Wars, now he is in Elektra as Stick! BTW he was Antonioni's first choice for the lead in Blow Up. However, he got too interested in Antonioni's wife, so David Hemmings got the part instead.

I think Jack Benny was supposed to do the George Burns role, not the Matthau in Sunshine Boys.
Ronald Reagan was the original choice for Casablanca!!

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
