Griffin Dunne, William Atherton and George Segal were considered for the role of Walker. Dunne turned it down due to him working on My Girl (1991). Segal turned it down because he felt the character of Walker was similar to Segal's character Albert in Look Who's Talking (1989). Atherton turned it down because he was tired of typecast as "the schmuck guy" as he had been cast in similar roles in films such as Ghostbusters (1984) and Die Hard (1988).
