The 'Bad Boys' who weren't

Let’s take a nostalgic walk down Hollywood’s Boulevard of Dumb Ideas. You all remember Michael Bay’s Bad Boys and the witty, ass-kicking banter between Will Smith and Martin Lawrence? Right? Well get this: When that project was first conceived at Disney under Jeffrey Katzenberg, the studio cast Dana Carvey and Jon Lovitz as the gun-wielding duo. And even better, somewhere out there is an actual screen test with the two comedic actors directed by Bay. Needless to say, the project was put into turnaround soon after that 15 minutes of footage was shown to Disney execs. (Sony later picked it up.) Boy, would I love to get my hands on that. If anyone out there knows where it is, let me know. Genius, I tell you. Pure genius.
