: : Cinescape On-line ran a short about that a couple days ago. In it, SPF apparently tells a member of the press that the chemestry between he and William Heard (sp?) wasn't great. I guess it all boiled down to the fact that WH didn't think someone of SPF's physical stature was big enough to take him on (I guess there's a little toe to toe between these two? I don't know, haven't seen the flic). Don't know about the rest of you, but if SPF had been in the movie, I'd have been more motivated to see it, but that's just me.

: The actor's name is William Hurt, who won an Oscar for KISS OF THE SPIDER WOMAN. He was also in THE BIG CHILL and CHILDREN OF A LESSER GOD.

: The name is easily confused with:

: John Heard, the American actor of the HOME ALONE movies, once married to Margot Kidder.

: And John Hurt, the English actor, nominated for MIDNIGHT EXPRESS and THE ELEPHANT MAN. He was also the unhappy first victim in ALIEN.

: Interesting...I knew that SPF was the original choice, having read of his departure in the trades last summer from LOST IN SPACE. But I didn't know of the apparent tension with Hurt.

You failed to mention that John Hurt provided the voice of "Aragorn" in the LORD OF THE RINGS movie back in 1978!
