    Howard related because he turned down so many parts. It's interesting to imagine what his career would have been like had he done the film.

    Drug addicts still die regardless of their professional succeses (i.e., PSH)

    howard turning down roles was the most charitable thing he has ever done.

    seems like it's a good thing that Mike Myers took over the part. this Chris Farley voiceover is just okay, nothing special

    It's shit. Glad he didn't film it. Just because he's dead doesn't make his career gold. Beverly Hills Ninja, anyone?

    This is true. The canonization of celebrities' who died young due to their own crippling vices is interesting to watch. The same thing happened with Amy Winehouse, but I loved her before she died.:cool:

    Oh wow, I didn't know that. I can't imagine any but Jim Carey in this role. He was perfect, imo.

    I think Chris Farley is one of the most overrated SNL comedians in the history of that show. Never made me laugh. Not once. His career success is a mystery to me.
