Edward Asner

  1. George C Scott, The New Centurions, 1972.  “There were a number of movie roles,” said Ed, the TV newspaperman Lou Grant,  “that I didn't get because of  the snobbism and  discrimination  in  the film industry.”
  2. Robert Shaw, The Sting, 1973.     “In each case, I was  informed they didn't want a TV face.”
  3. Paul Mazursky, A Star Is Born, 1976.
  4. Jackie Cooper, Superman 1978.
  5. Jack Lemmon, Missing, 1982.  “Ed was very, very interested, so were the producers,” says Costa-Gavras.  “I liked him, very much. But I needed someone less... robust.  More fragile.  Jack is always vulnerable in his films once he's outside of America.”
  6. Danny De Vito, Hercules, 1997.   Being a man of certain experience, standing and fame, De Vito refused to audition for Philoctetes. Asner, Ernest Borgnine, Red Buttons and the inevitable unknown (Dick Latessa) were not so shy.   Only Buttons knew the score. "I know what you're gonna do. You're gonna give this part to Danny De Vito!"
