Ever wonder why Hollywood’s beloved Bill Murray wasn’t in Charlie’s Angels 2 ? The main reason is Murray’s disregard for Lucy Liu. The big assumption is that Murray and Liu did not get along but it goes way beyond that.
Bill Murray did not think Lucy could act. The fact is Bill told Lucy Liu that and she decided to actually try and beat the crap out of him as a result. For the sequel Bernie Mac replaced Murray but his presence was still felt as his character was mentioned.
There must have been something lost in translation there!
It’s almost certain that you are thinking Orson Welles became some sort of religious devotee by reading the tittle of this entry, not so. The fact is that when he made the classic Citizen Kane Welles made an enemy of the legendary media mogul William Randolph Hearst. Essentially Welles pissed him off by creating a character that was based on him, a person that engaged in gaudy self-barony.
Welles was warned by many people not to try and tangle with Hearst in any respect but he did it anyway. When Hearst realized what Welles had done he was looking for ways in which to smash Welles down. One night Hearst planted a girl in a hotel room, the girl was naked and she was supposed to scream rape and get Welles arrested. Welles was giving a lecture somewhere.
On the way back to his room a janitor of the goings told Welles on so he never went to the room. That night Welles was spared but the following years would be a sort of nightmare for Welles as he was somewhat blacklisted as a difficult and casuist individual.
