My daughter told me she saw a documentary on FOX (really, a documentary on FOX) where Sherwood Schwartz, the producer of the Brady Bunch, originally wanted to cast Gene Hackman, yes Gene Hackman, in the role of Mike Brady. Wouldn’t that have been a hoot to beat all?
“Shut the fuck up Peter and finish raking the back carpet…er…lawn” or “Get upstairs Carol, put on that leather thing I like.”
If Mr Schwartz had been successful, how funny could that have been? Please feel free to speculate.
