Rob Reiner

  1. Tim McIntyre, Justice For All, 1968. He lost the first ABC pilot, wasn’t even considered for the second, Those Were The Days, in 1969. However when Norman Lear set up a third at CBS - finally called All In The Famiy - he recalled Rob in a Headmaster episode (Valerie Has An Emotional Gestalt For The The Teacher, no less) and gave him another shot… And the nickname his father had foisted on him: Meathead. Even though he was losing his hair as early as 24 and had to wear a rug, Rob was wed to Sally Struthers for 186 episodes before becoming a Hollywood A List director of such films as Stand By Me, Misery, A Few Good Men, When Harry Met Sally…
  2. Leonard Frey, Fiddler on the Roof, 1970.    Seen for Motel during the January 1970 auditions.
  3. Keith Carradine, Pretty Baby, 1977.  The plot sickens… A prostitute allows her 12-year-old  daughter’s virginity to be auctioned off in a brothel in the red-light district of  New Orleans, circa 1917. French director Louis Malle saw 28 hopefuls and/or instant (parental) refusals for little Violet… 15 actresses for her mother… and 17 guys for for the real life, misshapen, hydrocephallic photographer  Ernest J. Bellocq, whose Storyville work of the epoch influenced the style of the surprisingly elegant film. Robert Redford was first choice, Jack Nicholson second. Before falling for  Carradine, Malle saw  Albert Brooks, James Caan, Robert De Niro, Clint Eastwood (he didn’t take up photography until The Bridges of Madison County, 1994), the new in town  Mel Gibson, Dustin Hoffman, Malcolm McDowell (the only Brit short-listed), Al Pacino, future director Rob Reiner, Christopher Reeve (planning to make  us believe a man could fly), John Travolta (more into Grease)… plus such flat out surprises as Joe Pesci, Burt Reynolds, Sylvester Stallone  (prepping FIST), and even Christopher Walken.
