Crispin Glover

  1. Jeffrey Weissman, Back To The Future II & III, 1989/1990.  Although not the easiest of actors (at one point, the crew had to build a kind of cage around  him to stop him forever moving from his mark), Glover said the reason he was dumped  from the sequels (as Marty's Pop,. George McFly) was because Universal did not appreciate his public disapproval of the first chapter’s ending, where Marty McFly’s family ends up rich and successful - the wrong message, Glover believed. Officially, he was ousted for wanting the same $1m pay as Michael J Fox. Glover got that, anyway, by suing Universal for the “unauthorised appropriation of his voice and likeness“ (via special make-up, prosthetics and old footage), to make  it appear that he was still playing Marty’s dad, George McFly,  and  not Weissman.  The case led to the SAG (Screen Actors Guild) making new rules about using  actors’ images.  A win-win!
  2. Anthony Geary , UHF, 1989.   “Weird Al” Yankovic,  who  could parody pop songs but not act, offered Glover the role of Philo…. 
  3. John Cadenhead, UHF, 1989.    … but Glover  preferred the weirdo car salesman, Crazy Ernie.  And lost both.
  4.  Anthony Michael Hall, Edward Scissorhands, 1990.  Crispin looks more like the film's creator, director Tim Burton, than "the image of American dream - the guy you knew in high school, who always had girlfriends."
  5. Anthony Rapp, Road Trip, 2000. Glover was chosen to play (but didn’t) the teacher's assistant with a thing about Amy Smart’s heroine.
