1. FALK TOO YOUNG?
Reiner: There’s Fred Savage.
Reitman: Was he on The Wonder Years at this point?
Reiner: No, he was not then. And now he’s a big director himself, that little schmendrick there. .. And there’s Peter Falk! [Applause.] Originally, Peter Falk [who was around 60] said, ‘I don’t know if I’m old enough to be a grandfather.’ He said maybe we should put prosthetics on me, to make me older. So we did. We did a test on it. He looked at it and said, ‘Rob … I look like a burn victim!’ I said, ‘Peter, maybe we do it without the prosthetics?’ He says, ‘I think you’re on to something.’
