From The New York Times So why was Swinton playing Lutz Ebersdorf? “Undeniably, I would have to say, for the sheer sake of fun above all,” Swinton emailed. “As my grandmother would have it — a motto to live and die by — ‘Dull Not To.’” Still, Swinton and her director had more in mind than just playfulness. Guadagnino had always conceived “...

John Goodman still starred in Always: he played Al Yackey, the best friend of protagonist Pete Sandich. Here he is on the poster: The Flintstones didn't begin filming until 1993, four years after Always was released, so Spielberg could cast him in the former without affecting his participation in the latter. As for why Goodman felt sandbagged, he may have ...

There's nothing definitive but the number of people credited with "stunts" at IMDB would seem to indicate that these were, in fact, stunt actors. The additional cost is probably marginal given that they'd probably only be required for a single scene probably shot in a single day. The scenes showing general turbulence were filmed in a complete aircraft ...

However, that scene was never shot, and the actress never had to appear ...

According to this article: In interviews with director Robert Rodriguez, he revealed that the surprise casting is meant to lock in capable actors for big roles in future Alita sequels, which was a lot tougher to pull off than it looks. Note that the lack of credit might not solely be due to the surprise effect, but also because of a technicality: "I ...
