Alternate Zombieland Cameo Scenes - JCVD and Kevin Bacon

As the coronavirus pandemic continues, co-writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are revealing more of the alternate script pages for Zombieland that would have given the big cameo made famous by Bill Murray to a number of other movie stars.

Patrick Swayze was in the very first draft of the movie, but he never got offered the part since he was diagnosed with cancer around the time the movie would have started production. Then Sylvester Stallone had to pass due to scheduling, and Mark Hamill’s people just flat out said no (read those pages here). And Zombieland just didn’t have enough money to lure Joe Pesci in. The offers didn’t stop there though, because Kevin Bacon and Jean-Claude Van Damme were each offered the cameo, and they both turned it down.

Josh Gad Reading to Kids

It’s going to be a rough couple months as everyone in the United States (hopefully) spends as much time at home as possible. Cities like Los Angeles are getting a little more strict about keeping people at home in order to slow the spread of coronavirus around the country, and it’s only a matter of time before everyone else follows suit. Thankfully, even though production is shut down on movies and TV right now, some celebrities are taking the time to make self-quarantine and social distancing a little more tolerable for those going stir crazy, especially families with kids who are home from school.

Josh Gad has been hosting a story hour for kids who love his character Olaf from Frozen, Jake Johnson is leaving voicemails for kids inspired by Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Gal Gadot rounded up a bunch of famous friends to do a rendition of John Lennon’s song “Imagine,” and Rosie O’Donnell is bringing back her talk show to help support The Actors Fund.

tremors tv show trailer

Tremors is the little horror series that could. What began with a terrific 1990 movie about giant man-eating worms wreaking havoc in a small Nevada town spawned an unlikely franchise: five not-always-awful direct-to-video sequels and a short-lived 2003 TV series on the Sci-Fi Channel. Even as Sci-Fi became Syfy, Tremors kept on trucking…and then came news that a new TV show was in the works, Syfy was making it, and original star Kevin Bacon was set to return as the charmingly lunkheaded hero, Valentine McKee.

However, the new Tremors was axed before it could even be born, with Syfy pulling the plug just a few weeks ago. But the internet is a wild place, a vast desert where just about anything can come lurching out of the ground. Like a very cool trailer for the Tremors TV show, filled with giant worms, dusty locales, and, of course, lots of Kevin Bacon wearing a cowboy hat.
