Adorf didn't play MAPACHE for two reasons: He had already played quite a few bandits & mexicans (German/ Euro-Western) and thought he had enough of that. And he didn't like his experience on MAJOR DUNDEE. Adorf is a very sensible man. Much unlike the usual (but good, of course) interview-stuff I got for my Peckinpah-projects, Adorf provided me with a complete different view on things. He didn't like the way oldtimers in the crew were treated, he had a deep respect for the Mexican villagers who were completely ignored and treated without respect by the production (except when a photographer was near).
Adorf is a remarkable man, much different than I thought he would be...
And he is accident prone: I made a little film about his numerous accidents during shooting (it's on the German MALASTRANA DVD, only German I'm afraid..). Veery funny stuff. Shooting in Italy/Spain/Yugoslavia in those days was
the real thing, no place for sissies Smiley

  Always a treat reading your posts, mike.  The movie knowledge in your head could probably fill volumes.  Grin

That's what happens when you have no father and you grow up in a movie theatre. You get stuck and become a movie buff, or geek. Yet, I think when you grow up in a movie theatre in the 70's/80's and have a chance to see all the great films on a big screen, you HAVE to become a geek Smiley
I didn't miss MTV in my childhood, we had our cars & girls like in DAZED & CONFUSED. Come to think of it, it is still like that Smiley

Silenzio knows his movies...
It's either from DAZED & CONFUSED or taken from our life style... (But I rather go for slightly older ladies,
they should have experienced work, otherwise you'll end up with Peggy Bundy..)

Bundys ROCK!  Afro They are so funny  Grin I've seen the whole Married With Children at least four or five times. As often as the TV plays it.  Grin

Yeah, me too. In Germany they play it the whole year - every day!. Sometimes two shows a day like this year...

And HONDO is still never on TV...(at least over here) Smiley

And I'm in love with Kelly Bundy.

It's the movie. Al is a big John Wayne fan.

I'd like to see HONDO. I don't like Wayne very much, but this must be badass. Al is so  Grin
And what about Psycho Dad? Is it an existing story?

Well Adorf's a good actor but I think GMV was the perfect casting for the part, same with Mapache. As for The Godfather I can't imagine anyone but Al Liettieri as Solozzo (if that is indeed the part he was offered), but Adorf would have been a good fit into that film, regardless of who he would have played.

I think Coburn might have worked as MWNN but as said before it would have been Britt Redux probably. And Clint IS the MWNN.

Coburn would have made a great MWNN, no doubt about it. Clint however was the right choice, especially after we're all grown to idenfity Clint in this role. It's hard to see anybody else as the MWNN after the fact. Coburn though had the talent definetely to pull the role off.
