Did You Know?
When Kristen Wiig signed on to the project, she pushed for Bill Murray to play opposite of her & even though Murray was interested in the project, he procrastinated in reading the script even forgetting about it at one point. Wiig would reach out to Murray reminding him about it even pushing him to read it. But before Murray ever got to read the script, the film's producers persuaded an interested Jack Nicholson to sign on instead. Coincidentally, Nicholson replaced Murray in How Do You Know
(2010). See more
