Movie Fact #782 – June 14th, 2015:

In 1995’s “Casper”, the character Dr. James Harvey (Played by Bill Pullman) has a scene where he’s possessed by a ghost and, staring into a mirror, he transforms into several popular, real-life celebrities who made cameos for the scene in the film. The celebrities included were Clint Eastwood, Rodney Dangerfield, Mel Gibson, and John Kassir voicing the puppet character the Crypt Keeper. However there was another one filmed. Dr. Harvey was also supposed to transform into director Steven Spielberg which was filmed with the famous director but, according to director Brad Silberling, the cameo was cut for pacing reasons. Spielberg was actually relieved by this as he felt that he wasn’t much of an actor himself and was quite nervous in front of the camera. Never know, he might have been good and a little hard on himself.
