Pyroradio.com: In terms of casting, did you get everyone you wanted?
I was over the moon when I got Kurt Russell â€“ he was perfect for me. But with the actresses, I didnâ€™t really offer it to anybody else. I wrote these characters that I felt really strongly about, and then it was just a big audition process â€“ finding the right people to play â€™em. Somebody asked Jordan Ladd, I think, â€˜Oh, did you get the part because youâ€™re Cheryl Laddâ€™s daughter and Alan Laddâ€™s granddaughter, and you were in CABIN FEVER?â€™ And she was like, â€˜NO! I won that part! I was THE BEST! And believe me, if I wasnâ€™t, somebody else would be standinâ€™ here!â€™
Pyroradio.com: The role of Stuntman Mike was originally going to be played by Mickey Rourke. Did you have to rewrite it for Kurt?
t rewrite it at all. Ive been known to do that. When it didn
t work out with Warren Beatty [in KILL BILL] I cast David Carradine, and little by little I kept rewriting it. We had a big long training period, so as I got to know him I kept making little tweaks here and there... It was about a year later before I got round to shooting all the Bill stuff, and it was different. But I havent had that experience every single time I wrote a part with someone in mind and they didn
t work out. My whole thing is not to go to the next guy â€“ yknow, the one that
s almost like the guy â€“ because it gives me an opportunity to rethink my whole movie. Kurt Russell is perfect casting as Stuntman Mike but theres nothing different about it. It
s perfect casting, its just different from Mickey Rourke.
