This is old news and you probably do know but Did you know that Kurt Russell and Christopher Walken were originally auditioned for Han Solo?

I think I've heard this, or maybe I'm thinking of Al Pacino or, I think even Burt Reynolds (maybe I'm mixing into Indiana Jones auditions now).

Can you imagine Christopher Walken as Han Solo now? That's just...so weird.

It was Burt Reynolds, and since The Godfather is fresh on our minds, here's another tidbit about Burt turning down the role of Michael Corleone:
Brando said he would quit if Reynolds was involved to which Burt replied with, Im flattered he was upset.

Oh and don't forget Stallone was offered the Solo role as well, yo

Big Lebowski coming back to theaters for two days, August 5th and 8th for its 20th year anniversary.
Btw, check in on Fathom events, they bring these great films back all year long. I was glad to have the opportunity to see some in the theatre that were before my time and to see others Ive seen in the cinema 100 times.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO kiddo flies home the morning of the 5th, totally would've taken him to see that.

Before I left MB, the local theater there would do "Flashback Cinema." Every Sunday and Wednesday at like, 11 AM I think, they'd show an old movie. Kiddo tells me that the past year they basically just played the same movies as that first year, so at least I don't really feel like I've missed anything. But they'd play Aliens, Raiders of the Lost Ark and Last Crusade, among others (Oooo, the first Michael Keaton Batman movie too. That was an awesome one to take kiddo to see in the theater).

They were cheaper than Fathom events, but not as big of a selection. The theater must've made a deal specifically for those movies or something.

that stinks the kiddo's going back that day....maybe negotiations for an extra day are in order. Certainly a valid reason in miming ;-)
Yea, there's always some culture fest revitalizing older flicks around town, fun stuff.

Dammit, I might have to check what time it is here although I think I might be out of luck.
